It is really looking like our house now!

Construction Update!

The house is coming along at a nice pace, I just hope it does not slow down! We have most of the windows and doors in now and the plumbers have started to rough in the plumbing.

Here is a shot of our "Friends & Family" antique door installed! I really love the color of it so I haven't quite decided if I should paint it blue as I had planned or leave it as is...??? 
Hmm, what do you think?

We have been so busy this past week trying to pick out lighting, fixtures, toilets and meeting with the cabinet maker.  I really need to start narrowing down my decisions! 

But on a positive note we did order our kitchen sink!

 Barclay 30" Single Bowl Farmer Sink
 Now I just need to find a faucet!

Tubs, Toilets, and Totally Stressed!

This is what I feel like today!

The house is coming along really fast! Which is really great news but at the same time, we have to make soooo many decisions to finalize right now! 

I know this is suppose to be the fun part however I have learned very quickly that I have champagne taste on a beer budget!  Of course everything we pick out is over budget! We have so much to do right now like finding faucets, tubs, lighting, and vanities all while staying within budget and in a short amount of time! Ahhh! Breathe...Breathe.....

The good news is that we are hoping to move in by the end of June!

Raise the Roof!

So in a little over a week we have gone from this...

 to this...

to this...


 and finally this is where we are today!

 We have a roof! Doing a happy dance!
It is really starting to look like a house now!

It was so rainy this past weekend which meant that there was still plenty of mud but that did not keep us from walking around the house. This is me trying to not step in any of the wet stuff!

And lastly, here is a shot of the back porch. Not much to see now but hopefully things will really start taking shape in the next couple of weeks!

Meeting with the plumbers and picking out lighting later this week... So much to do!
