Paint, cabinets and stone...oh my!

Two days ago all we had was just siding with nothing much happening on the inside. But my oh my what a difference a few days make! Steve called me and told me he sent pictures, and I was so excited by what I saw!

 We have stone! He decided to enter the home, and found at least 25 workers in there taking care of business.

The stair banisters in the dining room! They will be stained a cherry color to match the hardwood floors.

Kitchen cabinets! There is mess all over the place but I am happy to see it all!

Some of the workers scattered the moment he entered the house, but he was able to catch a few of them working. In this picture you can see the cutouts in the ceiling where the surround sound speakers will go.

Loving the mantle!

The small closet in the mud room area:

Bedroom 4

Bedroom 3


Bedroom 2

Owner's bedroom. I love how spacious it is!

Facing the sitting area and Steve's closet...he's still bitter that mines is bigger! 

Cabinets in the bath. We decided to go with the same color cabinets throughout the home. We also went with double sinks in both bathrooms.  

The toilet area and my closet. The sales rep stated that there wouldn't be a door for the toilet room, but I'm happy we got one.


Behind this door is where we plan to turn the storage area into another bedroom and bathroom. We got the rough ins so that we could convert it when we are ready to. 

I know I have posted a lot of pictures lately, but I'm so excited about the progress! Just a few more weeks and the home is ours. Next up is the tile in the bathrooms, a second coat of paint, final heat, electrical and plumbing.


  1. Hey Timika, the bay window is gorgeous! And I really like the paint color, do you know what color it is? It's nice that it is not plain white. When you get the owner's upgrade bath the toilet (water closet) comes with the door. I can't tell from your pictures if you have the shower or linen closet in your bathroom. If you don't have standing shower--SCORE FOR TOLIET DOOR!!

    1. Hey Nadase! The linen closet is actually in the hallway leading towards the loft. We have the standing shower as well, you can see it behind Steve in the picture where the sink is shown. I don't know the paint color off the top of my head, but I have sent Steve on a mission to find out for ya.

  2. I must be in the minority in NOT wanting a door on the toilet. That feels claustrophobic to me!

  3. Love the bay window! That's one thing I'm going to really miss about our current house. And I agree, it's really nice to have a door to the water-closet!

  4. Love your stone!!! It looks beautiful!

    1. Thanks Rachel! I was nervous about how it would turn out, but I love it!

  5. Hey! I like the modifications to the floor plan. The porch and bay window are nice touches.

    1. Thanks Sheldon! I wasn't aware that we would get a porch or the bay window until after I signed the contract. I welcomed the surprise though!
