House Update: Tile, Carpet & More!

I heart flooring. And doors. And trim. It really makes all the difference in the world. I’m a firm believer that it’s all in the details and that they make the biggest impact. It’s amazing to see all of our decisions and choices come together. And better yet, to see our completion date get closer and closer. It’s long overdo and we are beyond ready!

Here’s where I left you last:

But, now we have our flooring installed! And we completely love it!

I talked about painting before, and just happened to forget a dining room shot. Here you go! I love the color. It’s completely fabulous and I can’t wait to see how it looks with our furnishings and accessories. Love.

Anyways, back to the wood flooring, We love it. It’s such a warm color and it looks amazing with the cabinets, which I’ll show you later….

We’ve also had the trim, doors, knobs and some lighting  installed. I have a date with my paint brush again this weekend. Our doors need some love.

The guys have also made some serious progress with our tile. They’re basically finished, but we ran out of tile, so we’ve been playing the waiting game for it to arrive. Tomorrow it should be all finished, including grouting.

Here’s what we’ve got:

Carpet was installed Tuesday and we love it!

The bedrooms are basically done. All that’s left is the lighting and window ledges. Yes!

So, here’s to a week with some serious progress! We are thisclose my friends!

Have a terrific weekend!

House Update: Drywall Part Three

Excitement is in the air! It’s been a happy day at the house. So much progress has been made and the house looks entirely different. I actually walked inside the house expecting to see a few 2 x 4 walls… crickets…. I stopped dead in my tracks! There are no 2 x 4 walls inside the house. Nope, nadda, zilch! They are covered!

Except the garage… which should be finished up tomorrow. But, the garage isn’t included in the interior portion of the house… so I’m calling the interior finished!

Can you BELIEVE this? I’m still in a bit of shock myself. For realz!

I mean, a few weeks ago we had this:

And then last week I left you with this:

But…. this is what it looks like NOW:

Notice the island wall… whoa!

Here’s what the rest of the house looks like:

So, pretty impressive right? I’m completely obsessed about this house and it’s amazing to see the completion date get closer. It’s an incredible feeling to know that this lovely house will be our home and we can’t wait to unpack our boxes, which have been in storage a very long time.

Unpacking… sigh… the thought is dreamy.

House Update: Insulation & Rock!

Who would have ever thought that we would be THIS excited to see insulation? After a week and a few days of waiting for mr. electrical inspector, we are finally making some more progress! And it feels AMAZING!

The house completely changed today… it got much smaller… in a good way! The walls are covered with insulation and the rooms are definitely distinct!

Take a look for yourself:

And there’s a wall!

And now, the rock!

This rock… *sigh*… it’s stunning… *sigh***… We LOVE it! It’s beautiful!

Stucco is set to be installed this Friday, but possibly next Monday. We. Can’t. Wait.!!!

The excitement levels are rather high right now. It’s kind of like crunch time, which means…. it’s almost moving time!

Want to hear some more good news?!?

Dry wall starts Thursday! YES!
