We're Home.

It's finished! Actually, we've been living in it for a few weeks now and are starting to feel pretty settled. I figured it was time for an update after my the original progress post.

Here she is all finished. We have big plans for front landscaping next year, but for now we're just happy to have a yard for Lou to run around in. 


To pick up from where I left off on my last progress post, here's the house after getting spray foam insulation. 



Soon after, drywall was installed and it became so much more real. 


Fireplace is installed. 



Then, bricking began.


Pretty soon, we had trim and paint! 


And our hazelnut glazed white cabinets. WHAT.




More progress in the master bath...




Time to pour the concrete...


And BAM! We blinked, and it was done! 


The flooring really brought it all together.
























What do you think? We LOVE it! Coming from a one-bedroom apartment, we are so appreciative of all the extra room. Every now and then, I catch myself walking around smiling and just taking it all in.  We are so happy with how everything turned out. I'll be sharing pictures of all the rooms with furniture in them soon. We've put a lot of time into hanging pictures, curtains, new light fixtures, etc. and we're excited to show off our hard work.

Building our Dream Home

Thanks so much for your congratulations on building our home. We are beyond excited to live in the finished product! Of course, I've taken to my "home" Pinterest board lately and have been dreaming away of what I'd like our place to look like.

Here's what has been on my mind lately...(click the picture for the source)

Warm white kitchens with golden toned granite



Round, intimate kitchen tables



Built-in mudrooms...



Grand entryways...





Cozy office spaces...



Organized pantries...



Inviting guest bathrooms with tall, to the ceiling shower curtains (genius, right?)...





And for the master bedroom, I'm thinking of....indigo ikat curtains with creamy-tone accents



Complimented with more indigo toned pillows


and a dreamy linen headboard



It's enough to keep a girl up way past her bedtime. I've just ordered my curtain fabric, and my fingers are itching to get some drapes sewn up!
