Here's the high level summary:
Day 96/97 - drywall work - taping and mudding
Day 98 - rest day!
Day 99/100 - drywall work - sanding and touchups
Day 101/102 - stone work and cabinet delivery
And the proof is in the details:
|[master bedroom - see the boards on the floor? they're hiding a hole.]|
|[pretty purple master bath]|
|[nice and smooth kitchen and living room]|
We had been to the house on Saturday (day 97) and were aware that the drywall work had been started. I was awarded a (much needed) fun day with one of my girlfriends on Sunday and then I spent Monday through Wednesday avoiding/caring for the sick boys in my house. Staying away to avoid sickness yet being around enough to provide care is an interesting balance. The good news is, everyone seems to be healthy now!
So, all that to say - I hadn't been to the house since Saturday and was pleasantly surprised to see a crew out laying stone this morning.
I like the stone in person much more than I do in these photos. Let's blame the iPhone camera? I think I'll like everything even more once the front door is stained to match the garage doors. And once the posts are finished. I have the worst timing imaging how everything comes together. Usually, I find a photo of what I like and then try to replicate it (e.g. our master bathroom). For the exterior of the house, I really haven't been able to do that. It drives me crazy. But I think it drives my Hubby even more crazy. If he hears another "I'm not sure" or "I don't think I like it anymore", I might be looking for a roommate!
The real reason for my visit to the house this morning was to accept delivery of our cabinets. Aren't they pretty?
I'm super excited for them to be installed. But first - priming, paint and floors. We're getting closer! I dropped off our paint samples with the Builder this morning and am told painting is supposed to start next week. Then, some more magic and hopefully we'll be moving in towards the beginning of April. My patience is getting thinner...especially as we start to get calls for showings again on the Condo. As unready as I am to pack up and move again, I seriously can't wait to be in our house. Our home. This Condo still doesn't feel like home and I truly miss that feeling.
In the mean time? I'll continue to love on the cuties I get to call my Valentines. Aren't they sweet?
