Inside Painted to Barn Door Installation – Day 151- 220!
Inside Painted to Barn Door Installation! Here we are in month number 6 and 7! At one point it seemed like the house was never going to be finished. But here we are almost done!
Day 159 – Inside Painted! After much research, we decided to go with what seemed like the most popular color for 2016…Sherwin Williams Revere Pewter. I figured if I didn’t like it, I could change it. After all…it’s only paint!
Day 166 – Lighting Installed! We picked out the lighting a few months ago and you never really know how they will look once they are put in. I decided that I didn’t like the two lights above the island and instead wanted the three separate lights. He swapped them out without a problem. They looked so much better.
Day 170 – Door Handles and Cabinet Handles Installed! I wanted the old style cabinet handles (maybe just cause I’m old) like we used to have in our house growing up. They look awesome!
Day 171 – Driveway Poured! We didn’t think they would ever get the driveway poured because it’s been so cold. We had a few rain free and a little warmer days so they finally got that done.
Day 172 – Tile Installed! It’s starts to come together more once you see the tile flooring and walls going in.
Day 178 – Fireplace Stone Installed & Wet Bar Tile! The fireplace came out exactly as I had pictured and I love the wood look tile that is on the wall and floor by the wet bar.
Day 180 – Garage Door Opener Installed and Hardwood Floors! I was having second thoughts on my flooring choice but now that I see it down, I absolutely love it and would go with it again. We went with a belt driven door opener because it’s supposed to be quieter. It also came with a keypad. We will eventually get the MyQ system that alerts you when you leave the door open or if you aren’t sure, you can check with the app.
Day 183 – Toilets and Faucets Installed! There are so many faucet choices but I’m happy with the Delta faucets that we chose.
Day 185 – Stone Steps Installed and Carpeting Installed! The stone steps looks great and he actually widened them a bit to match the windows around the door. We upgraded the padding under the carpets to help the carpet last a tad longer.
Day 186 – Ceiling Fans and Lighting swapped out above counter! We went with ceiling fans in every bedroom to help circulate the air and heat. The lights were swapped out above the counter.
I went from these lights….
To these lights! They can be adjusted also just by pulling them down.
Day 190 – Alarm installed and Appliances! The alarm company came to hook up the alarm and the GE appliances are also installed. I’m so excited! I love the appliances.
Day 192 – Glass Shower Enclosure! All the minor details are getting finished up like the shower enclosure in the master bathroom.
Day 199 – Mirrors Installed and Wet Bar Shelves! I had a choice for the bathroom mirrors to either have the full mirror or the framed mirror. I went with the full mirror but probably should have gone with the framed mirror. Too late, they’re in!
Day 220 – Barn door Installed and Refrigerator Delivered! The Barn door is the final installation as well as the refrigerator. It’s almost real now!
