Week 15

They finished hanging drywall at the beginning of the week and they now have 2 coats of mud on it. One or two more and then they start sanding and are ready to start painting.

Our contractor asked me if I had picked out my paint colors yet and of course I had not even given it a whole lot of thought! I seriously don't know what I would have done without pinterest. I searched for sherwin williams gray paint colors and it helped SO much being able to see rooms that were already decorated painted in different colors. It gave me more insight on what I liked and what I did not.

Five colors all picked out! 
After a couple days of pinterest searching colors I went with a list of 5 colors and got paint sampled then came back and painted scrap pieces of drywall. Let me tell you, if you build a house this is the way to go! I was able to take the painted pieces of drywall into their specific rooms and really seem what that color would look like. My momma told me that trick and it worked perfectly and I loved each color!! What I thought would be one of the hardest decisions turned out to be one of the easiest! 

We also had to finalize lighting and tile this week. We changed quite of bit of the light fixtures were originally chose to different finishes but I think we are all set to go on those! The tile all came together perfectly and it is getting ordered Monday. 

Ceiling fans all start looking the same after a while!

Oh and the brick showed up and they should start laying that early next week!
I'm in L.O.V.E. with our brick choice! 

Dad and Punkin started on my tile shower and tub this week! All the durock is in and they are almost ready to lay tile once it comes in. I believe my master bath is one of the rooms I am most excited about. The different tiles in the shower are going to looking amazing together!! I can't wait to see it all starting coming together. Growing up I had a jacuzzi tub in my parents house. Now that I run and workout I LOVE to soak in epsom salt baths but my little tub just isn't cutting it. I can't wait for that first soak! LOL
Oh this boy! He isn't afraid to get his hands dirty and work hard! So proud of the boy he is growing into!  

Shower all mudded up! 

The kids are enjoying playing in the dirt at the house and it is so nice how peaceful it is back in our little cul-de-sac! Hardly any traffic and friendly neighbors walking by make me feel like I'm on Wisteria Lane! ;) (anyone catch that reference?) 

We are now four months into this house building adventure and I have been reflecting on how this whole process has affected my husband and I. Over the years I have heard people say "If you can survive building a house then you can survive anything". Well truth is, that statement hasn't really rang true for us. Over 12 years of marriage we have been through raising two kids, job loss, death of a parent, sickness and learning how to lean only on each other. We have learned a lot about each other over the years and have grown in more ways than we ever would have dreamed. This process has been stressful at times yes but it has been so fun to be able to go through all the decisions together. He trusts me and I trust him and the decisions have flowed pretty easily. 

So here is to a fun 4 months of building and hopefully only a few more until we move in and continue this wonderful little love story we have going for us!
