lake path house update - electrical, hardwoods, pendant lighting & carpet installed

June 27, 2011
Our hardwoods were installed and they are the perfect contrast to the tile in the kitchen.
I'm loving that we mixed it up a bit flooring-wise.
Carpet is one of the final thing to be installed inside our home.
It's turning out to look even better than we thought it would!
June 30, 2011
Our builder called Bryan and told him that our carpet was being installed and that our pendant lighting finally went in.
We didn't really have any vision to what the pendants would look like once in and we were both unsure of them initially.
But Bryan went back to check them out again later in the day, flipped the lights on and we both think they look awesome! Oh yes, lights. Lights are kind of a big deal because as of yesterday we didn't have electricity. Yay for electricity!We put carpet in the entire upstairs, downstairs bedroom and formal living room.
This is the formal living room and the wood is in the front entry way.
I'm loving the way that the wall color, carpet color and wood give off a light and airy vibe.
The wood we chose is a rustic looking wood with dents and grooves in it.
It's just our style and is gorgeous!Upstairs bonus room and starting on the stairs
Bry went to check on everything later in the day and all carpet was done.


Master We think all they have left to do is stain the bannisters and add a bannister up the stairs.
From what I remember, I think that the only things left outside are to attached the decorative shutters to the outside of the house, paint the front pillars white, touch up all paint and clean.
So essentially, our house building process is 95% complete.
