Days 172-191

Things are flying by now with incredible speed...I don't feel like I have enough time in the day to get everything done! The brick is gorgeous...the siding is a lot darker than we thought it would be, but we like it...we ended up going with a dark fascia and soffit because it looked better with the siding...we love it, too!...the garage doors are ordered...they will be dark like the fascia...the deck is complete as well as the little porch in the garage...the trim was completed today...they have already started painting and Kelly took two weeks off work to do the tiling...we will move out of our rental at the end of the month and move in with my parents if need be for a short time...even though I am completely worn out...it sure has been fun!

Here is a view of the siding from the back side...


Very dark...I LOVE it!


This is the retaining wall we had to have built so that when it rains all the water doesn't pour into the basement!


The lovely septic tank...


Luke enjoying watching them put in part of the septic system...


The finished brick with the bronze fascia...the front door will be stained a dark bronze color...


home sweet home...


The beginnings of the deck...


looking lovely...


stairs almost complete...


The small sample garage door panel on the right is the color our garage doors will be...


Luke playing the Leapster on the window seat...you can also see some of the bead board hung on the wall behind him...


The walk in pantry...


A view of the pantry from the kitchen...there will be cupboard doors on the fronts of these openings...


The bead board in the dining room primed and ready to paint...


The inside doors lined up like soldiers to be painted...


Kelly's first time tiling...he did a really good job...only 1400 square feet more to go!

  1. Seriously! So gorgeous! I cannot wait to see it in person! Please let me know if you need help with anything, Will is done with school on the 25th and so we are free to roam about the state without a schedule to keep to. Looks amazing. Love the bead board in the kitchen.
