The House That Built US - Week 24

OOOHHHHH BOY!!!! There was a whole bunch accomplished at the house this week! 

Monday the flooring guys showed up and started laying our hardwood. It only took them 4 days to get it all down and it looks beautiful. We went with a Greystone wood flooring. It has a smokey haze over it and really just works well with the style of the house.

Master Closet

Tuesday the concrete men showed up and poured the from porch and back patio. I'm really digging the back patio! We extended it out a bit further then the picture showed and curve it around the boat garage. That really makes it look all fancy without a lot of extra cost.

Back Patio 

The rest of our lighting came in so some of the outdoor lights went up along with the rest of the ceiling fans. There are only a few more lights to go up. We realized after the fact that they didn't put the right type of lighting on my front  porch but honestly I am kind of glad. We had originally decided to do 3 can lights on the front porch. Well they put regular light boxes in there and today when they were hanging lights said we didn't have fixtures for out there. We are now going to do 2 outdoor fans and then a hanging light. I am super pumped about the front porch fans since I plan on many evenings of front porch sitting watching the kids ride their bikes! 

Master Vanity Light

Wednesday the front walkway and driveway concrete was poured and they continued to work on lighting and flooring.

We still need the step up to the porch 

Sidewalk and driveway

Thursday the granite showed up and I was excited and nervous about seeing how it looked with our cabinets. WOW!! The Vinscon White was a PERFECT pick for our cabinets. Oh and in case the info is helpful to you we went with Harbor Gray and White cabinets with a platinum glaze on both.


Lanie's Bath 

Master Bath - There are two vanities and sink I just couldn't get it all in 1 picture

Over all a very, very good week. I needed that after the past couple where I felt like the work was creeping by! 

One thing this build has taught me is that it is the little things that seem to mean the most. 

Our house is a 3 bath house therefore the kids will have their own bathroom. Kinley's however happens to also be the upstairs guest bath. I picked out a beautiful blue and gray shower curtain and was going to accent with some farmhouse style decor. Well I guess after really seeing the toilets in and hearing again that his bath is also the guest bath he was very upset. After some contemplating and taking with the hubs we decided to let him totally decorate it. Not bad except we are in this "EMOJI" specifically the poop one, phase. As of now there isn't much out there for bath decor but I figure with the movie it will explode. He is determined also to find the matching toilet seat cover. 

Just a favor to ask, if you come to my house and see the 💩 emoji toilet seat cover, just think of it as an ironic reminder of what you came to do! LOL

Now on to the next week and hopefully we will have a move in date by he end of this week!!
