New House Update

As it goes in the contractor business, things never go quite as scheduled. So, here is the update on where we are on our house:

Tile didn't get started until yesterday (Wednesday). They got most of it done and were supposed to finish it up today. They will grout tomorrow. We went by last night and it looks great in the kitchen/breakfast area and master bathroom. I love the offset look of the brick pattern. And I really love the 18" tiles.

Yesterday they started putting the siding on the house, they had the back and both sides done. Hopefully they will finish the front today. And the EIFS man was there today to start putting the EIFS (synthetic stucco) around the windows. I can't wait to see the finished look of the outside of the house. Here is a photo of how we are going to have the EIFS look around our windows (the three large windows in the front) and our arch. In fact, this house is very similar to ours. We have the same shaped windows and archway. This was also the house we used to decided on whether we would get windows with or without lines. When we saw this house and knew ours would be the same shape, we decided we liked it without the lines...plus it was a little cheaper!


Oh, the front steps were also done yesterday. I didn't take any photos because there was a lot of stuff in the front yard and I decided I would wait until Saturday.

The counter tops are now scheduled for installation on Monday, which means the plumber will come on Tuesday or Wednesday. We also picked out the granite that will go around the fireplace. Here is a picture of it. It's the same granite that was around the mantle we copied!! We didn't realize this until after we chose it in the store.

Come back after this weekend, I'll post all the updated photos after our trip up there on Saturday. Saturday is my niece's birthday also and we're going to her house for a big birthday bash. Happy Birthday Courtney!

The house is coming along; it looks great!!

I don't know if you'll get this in time, but I won't be scrapping tonight. I had a rough day at work and I just want to chill out at the house. :o( I'm so bummed about missing, but I just don't think I would be up to it. So we will try again in July....you ladies have fun!!!
