The usual Sunday ritual – attend Sunday school at 9:45 followed by Worship Service at 11:00, lunch with the kiddos at 12:30 and recently the addition of visiting the new house currently under construction.
It’s hard for me to call it “home” at this point. Not because it is still a few weeks from being finished, but because there are so many things that are out of my control that need to happen to make this a reality. The biggest one obviously is finalizing the sale on our current home and getting the buyers to the closing table. Nonetheless, it is still very exciting and the designer in me is definitely already planning the interior design of the space.
As promised, here are the newest pics of the new digs.
It’s starting to look more like a real house. Over the past week brick and stone were added. The brick is from Hanson and is called Las Cruces and the stone is called Chocolate Flagstone (not sure who the vendor is). In the next week or so they will power wash and seal the brick and stone to bring out the true colors. Stucco will also be added in the coming week.
The interior is also starting to take shape. Drywall was done, and they will be adding the texture and paint in the coming week as well. Of course with any new construction project, I noticed a problem right away. I specifically requested and paid for the breakfast bar to be lowered, and of course because it is not a typical request, it got overlooked. That, will hopefully be resolved in the coming week as well.
So that’s it for now. Can’t wait to get to the interior design portion where I plan to possibly do a video and step-by-step guide of the planning and implementing of a room design. I will pick one room in the new house as our project room. Who knows?….We may do more! I promise it will be fun and inspirational, and of course beautiful. Hopefully this all works out. Fingers….and toes crossed 🙂
