We are certainly not there yet, but each time we stop by the house it is looking
more and more like home We keep having to remind ourselves that this is by
all means a new house. You can literally only lay your eyes on about 4 things
that survived from the original house we bought.
There is still contractor junk everywhere, but the kitchen is starting to look really
great. The back splash was finished at about midnight last night!
The floors make the white really stand out. I was worried about having too much
white with the cabinets, counters, cabinets, window, sink, ceiling and trim all being
white, but when the stain went on the floor, I got really excited.
View of the living and kitchen area from just under the dining area light.
The wood wall finally got built on the end of the dining area. It will be painted
very soon along with the wood wall in the master bathroom.
I wish we had been ready to put the wood wall in before we put the granite in,
but once it is painted, the room will really come together.
Bribing a contractor is legal. That box of pizza was a big part of the late night
push to get the back splash and trim completed yesterday. I have no apologies.
The pantry shelving was completed too. You might not expect that to be a major
point of concern, but getting it just right was a big deal since we use it a ton. We
like the kitchen area if you haven't picked up on that. We entertain a lot and also
like food a lot!
No baseboards yet, but they are being painted as I type this. We have been
teased with a day of beautiful weather before a day or two more of rain sneaks
The guest room is going to be perfect and we are going to need it as we have baby
#3 on the way late this summer! See what I did there with a random baby announcement?
It pays to follow the blog.
The MUD room cabinet is being built still, but will go on the wall on the right to
make this space more functional coming off the game room and back entrance.
New toilets are going in and a few final cabinet projects going on in the hall
Here is a really exciting picture of can light covers. I've remodeled more homes
than I can remember and I still forgot to order can light covers when I
originally got the can lights. It happens folks. There are only about 13,000
moving parts to this project!
More to come very very soon!
