A House in Progress

Hello friends!

No, the house is not complete….Darn it! But soon.

I was excited when the gutters went up. I chose a bronze color. Also, the trim around the roof line is painted Urbane Bronze by SW. I love it! Maybe you can’t tell but here is what it looked like before.

So the lighting is in, the driveway is poured and the hardware is on.

Remember when I wrote about how disappointed we were with all the front steps (link HERE)? Well, we had the walkway raised to cover two of the steps. It took a ton of dirt too but now there are only 8 steps instead of 10. Worth it, even though the front yard slopes a little more.

Much better.

It’s starting to look like a home.

The back patio is in.

I am so excited to have a patio and a backyard that is easily accessible, even though the front yard is less so. We’ve had decks with stairs going to the yard for years and this go around I wanted my backyard closer. (Besides, Mazi is so lazy that in the Winter she would not even go down the stairs to go potty – she went right there on our deck! This will help.)

I rarely share pictures of myself but this is my husband and I — Hello!

That’s the garage side door. I like it white but I think it’s supposed to be the same bronze color as the trim. We’ll see. Lately we just say – you get what you get. Some requests happen and some don’t.

On the inside – the floors are in but not yet stained.

The master bath is just about finished.

I chose the same granite as the kitchen for this room. I like the consistency throughout the house.

All the tile is white in the showers too.

I still don’t love the wall color but it will be a good excuse for me to put some personality into each room once I get our things in there. (Eider White by SW – it has a pink hue)

I realize this is sort of a boring post but life feels like it’s been turned upside down and I can’t seem to find fun words to write. I miss my Mom every single day however, I feel like I am finally adjusting to a new normal – slowly (link to that story HERE).

The house has been a good distraction giving me something to look forward to.

I took a picture of Mazi the other day and it made my boys and I laugh…

She wouldn’t look at me because she was watching out for a cute neighborhood kitty that likes to tease her. So, she deserves an un-becoming public picture.

That one isn’t really any better but she’s so dang fun! We take her with us almost everywhere. I love her.

We still have almost 6 weeks left before the move. I’m looking forward to getting settled and planting a garden.

I post more pictures on Instagram. You can follow my story there too – link HERE.

Hope you are enjoying the change of season. The warm weather refreshes my soul.

Thanks for stopping by!
