Days 145-171

Has it really been a month since I updated this thing??? Things have been so busy...so many decisions to make! The House looks fantastic!! They finished the brick weeks ago. Other things that are complete...drywall, taping drywall, and texturing. They have also started the finish trim work and started (and almost finished) the siding today...LOVE IT! I have been busy trying to get carpet and tile finalized...cabinets and fireplaces designed...paint picked out and blinds ordered. Kelly is busy figuring out the deck and retaining wall and rain gutters and garage doors...also trying to decide if we have the $$$ to upgrade the can lights...hmmm...we will see...I just love how it is turning out...I love the colors! There are plenty of pictures here...enjoy!

The kids love to go up to The House and check out its progress...



There are lots of pictures of them laying brick...to be quite honest...it was fascinating to watch...it was not uncommon for me to sit there for an hour and watch them brick...I love it!












I was wondering how they were going to make the arch! They let this form sit there for a couple of weeks to ensure the brick had cured properly...


I think this is a good view of the "coins" that we put on each corner of the house and on the pillars...




I know this picture isn't the greatest...but you get the general idea of it all finished...the arch support is still there...they actually removed that yesterday, but I haven't got a picture of it yet!


The ceiling in the living room...the guys who did the drywall were awesome and FAST...holy cow...they did the whole house in a couple of days!


The trey ceiling in the dining room...


A view from the window seat in the kitchen looking out to the front door...the half wall in front is for the raised bar...


Another view of the living room...


The taping complete in the living room...the guys doing our taping and texturing and painting are also awesome...fast and good!


A view of the kitchen...this is looking from the dining room into the main kitchen area...the half wall in front is for the raised bar...on the back side of it will be the sink and dishwasher...on the left wall will be the fridge in the foreground and the stove about halfway back...on the back wall will be a computer nook on the left...double oven...then floor to ceiling pantry cupboards with a microwave niche...in the middle will be and island...to the right will be a peninsula...clear as mud?


I just love how the toy area turned out downstairs...


Here are the inside doors and trim...


I only have this one picture of the siding...not sure where the other ones are hiding...I LOVE the dark color ( I know it is kinda hard to see in this picture)...I will post more pictures of it later...
