lake path house update - front door, front yard framing, fireplace, cabinetry and tile floor

May 31, 2011

Yesterday was Memorial Day and with the 3 day weekend behind us, construstion was in full swing today.

We are completely shocked at everything they've accomplished since we went over to our house just 2 days ago!

For starters... our front door has been painted and we are loving the color we chose!

Our walkway to our front door has been framed and we can see where our planters will be.


Look... Our sidewalk has been framed out also!


Our mantel and granite have been applied to our fireplace. And to be honest, this is not the fireplace of our dreams and it never was. We had little to choose from and did our best with our choices. I don't care for the white mantel and we plan to one day make it all stone... Oh, and the entire inside of the house has been painted this buttery color. Notice the tiles on the bottom left of the picture? They're our kitchen flooring -- Exciting stuff! We are so excited obout our cabinetry! It's really neat getting to pick everything at the Design Center, but it's nothing like seeing it in person... nothing! Love this corner cabinet, the molding on top and the lazy susan in the bottom cabinet!
Don't you love the "braid" that Bryan chose to add to the molding? Such a classy small touch!
Downstairs bathroom cabinetry
Upstairs guest bathroom. This bathroom was suppose to only have 1 sink and be much smaller than this. I put my foot down and made sure we got a double sink upstairs. This meant that we had to push the wall back in the bathroom to make it larger, which took away space from the guest room next door. Now that we see this cabinetry for the 1st time, we know we made the right decision! A double sink was a must!!
This made me squeal like a little pig, no joke! I fought so hard for this length of counter and cabinetry in our master bath and we love it!! It was suppose to be significally smaller, with a linen closet to the right of it. I didn't want the linen closet in my master bath and wanted the elongated counterspace. I went to the builder and after some back and forth, they figured out how to make it work. Bryan and I are obsessed with it. I told him that if he ever can't find me, I'm in our master bath, lol! (this picture doesn't do justice on how large this counterspace will be, but it's huge!)
Our fully tiled master bath is being installed. No grout yet, just spacers between each tile. We love the color!
The shelf was an extra and was not cheap, but totally worth it!
I'm standing in the bonus room taking the picture into our hallway to 2 guest rooms, 1 guest bathroom on the left, the childrens retreat is straight ahead (where the window is) and our master is to the right of the childrens retreat.
Downstairs into the kitchen and family room. Oh, and we now have bannisters!
Ain't she a beauty?!
This might just be the most rewarding experience we've ever been through!
I just can't wait to see the finished product!
