Beautiful Home

So, have I told you how amazing our builder is? I'm sure I've said that to everyone by now, but if not, he is simply the best! Still some touch up going on, but for the most part, the interior is complete. There will be some outside work that cannot be done until we have warmer weather (driveway, walkway, patio).  Here are some pictures of finished rooms:

Doors to Office/Study

Front Door

Great Room

Guest Bath

1/2 Bath

Sydney ready to cook!

Basement Family Room

Love, love, love it! I will probably post one more time this week. After that, I will hold off until the outside work is completed.

Close to the End

I know it's been a long time since I've posted - The blog hasn't allowed me to upload pictures so I've been putting them directly on my facebook. We're nearing the end which is getting exciting. The kitchen is still missing a few few appliances, but the stove is at the house, just not installed. The refrigerator should be in this week.

Painting is continuing (thank god we only had to paint two rooms), and the carpet is being installed. I'll have updated pictures again tomorrow of the finished work. For now, here's what's been taken in the past few days:




Master Bath Shower

Guest Bath

Office Crown Molding

Master Bedroom Carpet

Office Carpet

McKenzie's Room Color

Sydney's Bedroom Color

Bar Cabinets/Countertops


I promise that as long as I'm able to upload pictures this week, I'll get them on here. There's lots that will be happening over the next few days so pictures of the finished house is coming.....Very Soon!

Merry Christmas!

Lots going on!

I've been trying to update the blog since this past weekend, but technology has not been cooperating. A lot has happened since our last blog - the brick work is complete, ceilings are stomped, walls are primed, trim work is started, doors are going in, tile work is happening, cabinets have shown up - YIKES! It's getting really exciting seeing everything come together. Here are some updated pictures of the work that's been taking place over the past week:

Stomped Ceiling

Wood Flooring

Interior Doors

Basement Stairs

Cabinets for Bar

Bar Area Tiled & Grouted

Kitchen Tiled

Great Room Window Trim

Front Door Trim

Will add more tomorrow!

About Ready for Paint

The house is coming along well, and we're about ready for paint. Things have slowed down a bit due to the cold weather and the fact we don't have heat in the house yet. Without heat, the drywall mud isn't drying very quickly. Although they have propane tanks heating the house, it's still taking time to dry it out. These are the pictures I took earlier in the week and not a whole lot has changed since these.

More to come soon.

Basement Drywall Complete

Well, just like the drywallers promised, the basement was completed today. Although, when I went out to take pictures, my camera battery was dead, so I had to settle for the iPhone. Not the greatest pictures, but pictures all the same.

More later this week.

The drywallers started on Saturday and moved amazingly fast! We went out there a few times yesterday and tried to stay out of their way. I needed to measure my windows for treatments so I decided to head back out there today before shopping and much to my surprise, they were there again! The main level is nearly completed, and they said they would be done hanging drywall by tomorrow afternoon (main level and basement). Almost every picture below captures the drywall dust that was flying throughout the air in the house.
