House Update

Hello everyone!! I'm FINALLY back!! Once again, I was having computer issues so I wasn't able to blog. Very frustrating!! I thought I should give you a house update before I start blogging all of the fun stuff that has been happening. They have been working hard on the house, and we hope to move in sometime in January. They still have to lay the hardwood floors, put in kitchen countertops, install kitchen appliances, hang all of the lights, tile the master shower, put the hardware on all of the cabinets, install the closets, mirrors, plumbing fixtures, put in the landscaping and install the picket fence in the backyard. After all of that, we will have to go through a punchlist with the builder. That should be fun!! The cabinet maker wasn't happy that I wanted a bigger lazy susan, so I'm sure he will be really disgusted when I tell him a couple of other things that I don't like and want him to change!! The joys of building a custom home:) Make sure you are really in love with your spouse before you tackle this kind of project:)

The shutters look so good with the front door and the brick!!

I am so happy with the color of the stain on the front door.

These are the steps off the back deck, but they still have to put the finishing touches on them.
They have been working on getting the doors on the cabinets.
I am so in love with the old school kitchen farmhouse sink!!
Here's our double oven- we love you Pickens!!
The tile looks really good against the blue paint. It brings out the blue in the slate looking tile.

My bathroom counter
Our jacuzzi tub- they still have to do the tile tub surround.
I adore the subway tile in our guest bath.
This is the tile that we used in the guest bath and the laundry room.
