I can’t believe its been almost THREE WEEKS since I’ve posted!! We’ve had SO much going on with the build and getting our house ready to list!!
We have a ROOF!
The roof went up SO FAST, only a couple of days, which I was super surprised to see, and the wrapping of the house was done within those two days as well!!
Picking the color of the roof was a no-brainer for my husband, but I thought for just a slight second that we should pick a roof with some browns in it because the colors on the house were going to be brown…Our awesome builder highly recommended the color Charcoal because it lasts longest…So we went with Charcoal!
We also met with the Electrician, Plumber, HVAC and Builder in a matter of 5 hours one afternoon, which seemed SUPER productive to do it all at once and to have everyone overlapping and having the opportunity to discuss.I would HIGHLY recommend meeting like this if you’re going to be building a home.
We ended up choosing the cabinets below.
The Bisque (off white with the brown creases) will go in the kitchen and the brown cabinets will go in the bathrooms and the laundry room! The cabinets will also have the style of the Bisque sample shown above and are made of maple wood.
It took me WEEKS to talk Kyle into the Bisque cabinets, but as soon as he saw his friends cabinets, which are similar, he finally said YES!! HOORAY!!
Originally I wanted a plate rack in the kitchen, BUUUUUT I decided that two large cabinets on either side of my master sink would be a better place to spend money. Sooo…No Plate Rack, but extra cabinets for Mommy’s Accessories!! WIN!
We also ended up moving our appliances around after speaking with the Cabinet Supplier, Bobby. Sweet Bobby is a good ‘ol country boy and he was so easy to talk to and super sweet! ANYWAY… ended up removing the Double Oven and having a wall mounted Oven and Convection Oven, due to the overruns on the extra $4K my husband spent on AC…Gotta make that cost up SOMEWHERE, but we always seem to so I’m not too worried at this point.
Here’s where the kitchen will be and the island. OH and that super excited, handsome boy, hes mine! ❤
Speaking of the HVAC…We originally budgeted for a basic HVAC system with two units. The house is just shy of 2800 sq ft and is two story so the need for two high efficient units is REAL, especially with my husband wants our house FREEZING 24-7. Another factor in needing more efficient units is that our son has Asthma, so we made some slight improvements to the filters and storage of the HVAC system. Hopefully this HVAC system, $4K over budget, makes our house freezing in no time or the Hubby WONT be happy…(He works outside ALL day and needs to come home to a cold house to be in a good mood, sooooo its worth it! HAH!)
Did you notice all the outlets in the last photo?! YES they’ve already started the electrical AND plumbing!!! Have I mentioned Russ Tibbitts is an AMAZING builder?!
