design center appointment 2

February 14, 2011

Valentine's Day afternoon we had our 2nd and final appointment at our builders design center.

EEEEEK!! It's all so insanely exciting!
During the weeks between the 1st appointment and this appointment Bryan and I talked about a lot and noted every change we wanted to make and every question we had.
We went into this final appointment feeling pretty prepared.
Bryan and I sat down with the design consultant and reviewed all of the choices we made at our 1st appointment.
It was so fun looking over all of our decisions and confirming that we made some super awesome choices.
But we did make some last minute design changes, upgrades and many structural changes.
It's odd to be sitting in a room full of appliances, wood and granite options, lighting, paint color, edging, outlet placement and so much more... they have so many options for everything... we have to pick 1........ and these decisions are so important..... we'll be living with them for years, so not only will these choices affect us in the coming years, but we'll be living with them 10 years from now too. No pressure or anything!
Remember my Valentine's Day post? Yep, we did this on V-Day! ... I just kept my little trap shut, HA!)
Guess what brick we chose?Building a home to our specifications and liking is such an amazing feeling!
I can't wait for the building to commence and our design center choices to start becoming a reality!!

  11. I can't wait to see all of this come together! And seriously, how did you keep this a secret? I would have wanted to tell everyone! Haha

  12. WWWHHHYYY????? did you keep this all a secret for so long? I would be totally offended and never talk to you again, since I thought we were such good friends that you should have shared this with me much earlier, but I will forgive you this ONE time.

    Let's just say, don't do it again.

    anyway, moving on.

    GORGEOUS decisions. LOVE the details. LOVE the sink (my husband owns a plumbing business so I know my sinks) love the tile work and the floors!! Enjoy them looking all nice and clean now, cause when you have kids and they are pushing their Thomas the Train and Buzz Lightyear toys all around it, they will NEVER LOOK THE SAME AGAIN!

    want kids NOW?? ;)

  13. wow!!! congratulations!!! you are really a good secret keeper!!! please show the final thing!!! I bet it would be amazing!!!!
