No Shoes Allowed

In between marathon shopping sessions yesterday, we managed to get out to the house for the first time since last Monday. Normally we would have visited mid-week but we knew not much was going on so we held ourselves back until the weekend.

The driveway and front steps were poured some time during the week. It has really helped to 'finish' the look of the house and we can't wait to see the yard sodded too. We are very pleased with our lot choice and the way the whole outside turned out.

You can't really tell in the pictures but the gutters were added this week too.

The garage doors still need to be painted but the facade is mostly done. It will be power-washed some time in the next few weeks.

The carpenters were just finishing up as we arrived. Ray (the next door neighbor) said they'd been there late into Friday night and back at it early Saturday morning. Now that all the flooring is done, everyone who comes in has to leave their shoes at the door so they don't scratch the floor or muddy the carpet. Needless to say, our feet were filthy by the time we left.

We are thrilled with how well everything matches. It is so hard to tell from those crazy little squares at the design center. We thought we'd done a good job, but we just weren't sure how it would turn out.

The living room/dining room area.

The laminate floors are all uncovered now, so we got to see the full effect for the first time. Love it! We also measured all 25 windows and the sliding glass door so that we can order the blinds soon.

The flooring in the bathrooms is also uncovered and we have running water.

Master bedroom just waiting for that nice new furniture!! All of the shelving has been installed in the closets too. Nate is finally going to have his own space in the master closet (at least for now!).

Only 30 more days until we are officially home owners!

This is going to be one BEAUTIFUL home! I had to lol over the shopper/saver thing, but it sounds and looks like you've made the right choices. Good call on the fridge - all black can get overwhelmingly, um, black at some points! I think a giant black hunk of metal in ANY room would get on your nerves after awhile!
