Good morning! Well we are officially in the home stretch and it is thrilling to finally be at this stage of the game. Unfortunately not being there to oversee and ooh and ahh over every little detail is unfortunate. As I would be there every single day if I were near by, maybe even twice a day:) Our builders are just waiting on the rest of our lighting to arrive and then they will begin installing all lighting and the fans. The house is painted, the floors are done, cabinets installed, it is just about buttoned up! I just cannot wait until the next visit, which will really be to do a walk through. This past week they finished up the driveway and apron and now the landscape starts. Railing is supposed to go in by end of this week which is going to be exciting to finally see installed. Will be sure to share progress pictures as they come. In the meantime, here is the latest (most outdoor) ____________________ The brick apron is done, love the herringbone Exciting to see the driveway done! Vanities getting their plumbing in Not the best picture but laundry got plumbing and a beveled white porcelain tile for backsplash Never was so excited to see a toilet:) More plumbing Doors and door hardware! Closets getting completed, they did a fabulous job on them Tub in one of my sons’s rooms installed Showers getting installed These are the epoxy floors samples for the garage, which do you prefer? I am leaning towards the gray. Which color epoxy flooring do you prefer? Today talking about my outdoor porch, its quite large and a space I just know we are going to spend a lot of time in. It is a screened porch (thank the lord) and I love this particular screen, as you almost can’t tell its there. I love the furniture we ordered, it is the collection from Lane Venture. We own some of their outdoor furniture now and love it, it has held up so beautifully and looks the way it did the day I got it. And I am talking totally exposed to the elements 365 days a year including New York’s cold brutal winters. Here is the collection with this exact seat cushion that we are doing- Though I have not picked any pillows and likely won’t until the furniture is delivered, this is the general color scheme I am considering, light and fresh- I know in addition to the furniture I want garden seats, and of course my beautiful Provence planters. Having a hard time deciding on which color/style. As always would love your input. What color planters do you like seeing the overall color scheme? Here again is the outdoor furniture to keep in mind as you look at these planters- CHOICE 1- White florette CHOICE 2- light taupe florette CHOICE 3- pale blue florette CHOICE 4- pale blue circles CHOICE 5- Circles creamy white Just playing with a few ideas, as we will not be there full time I may have to go with a really good faux boxwood Which color planter do you like best for the screened in porch? Also if you missed my last post where my most spectacular hood was unveiled, then by all means click here, it is worth seeing!
