Concrete Floors to Walls Day 31 – Day 60!
We are now into our second month of home building and we finally had a chance to see the progress. Although there wasn’t much progress, things are moving along smoothly!
While we were there, we had to pick out all our choices because we probably won’t be back until Dec. By then, we should on the final countdown to the finish line!
Day 46 – Picked out Cabinets and Granite!
We are going with Tundra White on the wall cupboards in the kitchen and master bath. We chose Shadow with black glaze for the kitchen island. Also Chocolate stain for the hall bath, basement bath and wet bar. We didn’t go with a square style but instead chose a slight arch.
A lot of the models have a different color granite on the kitchen island, but I like to stay uniform in my choices. I know, I can be a little bit boring at times. 🙂
Day 47 – Picked out doors!
The doors I chose are similar to the ones in our old home, but these have lines in them, kind of like bead board. Which is the style of our garage door.
These are the drawer and cupboard pulls. The handles on the doors will be the lever style.
Day 47 – Plumbing installed in basement!
While we were there, they started the plumbing in the basement. It really is exciting to see it all come together and I wish we could stay but we can’t.
Day 48 – Picked out Paint Colors and Flooring!
These are such hard choices to make when you are looking at a little swatch. I was never a big fan of grey but seeing all the new houses with grey everywhere, it kind of grew on me. I chose Revere Pewter for the walls. The flooring wasn’t as easy to choose. So many choices….so little time!
When choosing the flooring there is so much to think about. The color of the cabinets, counters,tile, and what it’s butting up against.
Here is a better picture of the carpet on the stairs.
For the deck we are going with TimberTech!
Day 49 – Picked out Lighting!
It’s hard to know what the lighting is going to look like in your home but I had some lights in mind and I think I will like how these look. I’m trying to go with a farmhouse style. I always wanted to live on a farm.
What I like about these lights is that I can swap out of glass globes for Mason Jars!
These will be above the kitchen island, one on each side.
How cool is that?
Day 50 – Picked out Faucets!
We decided to go with brushed nickel again.
Day 52 – Concrete Floor poured!
Day 59 – Framing started!
Be sure to stop back and see how the house is progressing next month.
