New house update — finally!
I’ve been remiss in posting pictures but am remedying that now. Things look a lot different than they did in this post.
Without further ado…the staircase. We’ve been very eager to see the wrought iron. Love it!
The curvy balcony is my favorite part of the house.
The downstairs tile is looking good!
Aerial shot of the tile all covered up neatly. My favorite girl got nervous when I pulled up some of the paper to take a picture of the tile. I keep reminding her that this is our house and we’re allowed to do such things. She’s still nervous.
Kitchen cabinets are hung and the backsplash is in. Oh, and the countertops, too.
Close-up shot of the cabinets. Love that cocoa glaze.
Here’s where the stove and microwave will go.
The island before the countertops went in.
Love that rope detail on the cabinets.
Countertops in the master bath.
The frame for the driveway and walkway.
This is so exciting, Nancy! What a beautiful place. Way to go!! XOX
Holy Cow! Things are really moving along! What a beautiful house you will have. When do you hope to move in?
We close on Valentine’s Day–can’t wait!
Looking good. Can’t wait to have drinks on the patio!!!
Oh my how, gorgeous is that!
I’m here in the UK, trying to decorate our wibley wonky ancient house. I wouldn’t swop it for the world,but I’m just a tad envious of that lovely new plaster and plumb walls! I must say it looks a very tidy building site,is that the norm in your part of the world?
Yes, indeed Ms UHDD, tidy building sites are the norm around here. Although I like the tidiness and new plaster, I do envy the wide open spaces in your corner of the world.
Very nice! Love watching it come together.
[…] but more haste can mean less speed: this is an old house, no wall is true no, plaster smooth, (I did succumb to a little plaster envy the other day) exposed oak beams may brim with ancient character but they are a fiddle to decorate […]
