Drywall, Paint & Doors 11/08/2015

That's right there have been more changes.  Once again looking at the house from the outside you would say nothing has changed, but then we went through our new doors!!! Yes the doors are up.  We did pick out some new ones instead of going with the standard 6 square which we had in our old house.  
Alicia and I are at the front door and its white right now but will be painted once the house is painted.  I think it's going to be a dark green but can't remember. 
But this is what the doors look like.  Different then our old ones and that's why we liked them.
So once we got inside we realized all the walls had been dry walled and painted.  It's funny cause we picked stuff out so long ago that we can't remember some of the stuff we picked out.  That's why I said I think the front door is green.  As we walked around inside we were trying to figure out what color the walls were.  Plus we were asking each other is this the color we picked out? lol  And Kev was like I thought we were getting two tone paint.  Well the two tone is that the walls are all the same color and then the base boards and doorways are a different color.  If you look at the walls they look like a shade of green but then in another room they look like a shade of beige.  I guess once we are in and really seeing it we'll have a better idea.  But for now, it's painted.  The baseboards are not on yet I think they do them after they do the floors, but really I have no idea when they do what.  
This is the door to the outside patio .  It's in the den and you can see how that room has lots of windows.  
Kev in our bedroom.  This is the wall our bed will go against.  So basically when you walk in the door this is the wall you see.  If you went to the right that's where our bathroom is.  
This is part of our closet in the master bedroom.  It has some built in shelves which I like cause it's something we won't have to do.  
So that's what's new on this visit.  Hoping to see more again on the next trip.  

We Have Walls 10/25/2015

Slowly but surely the house is getting built.  Alicia and I decided to take a drive out to see if there were any changes cause from the outside everything still looks the same.  And the last pic we got from the sales lady was this, and it looks the same.  lol  But she did tell me they are not allowed to take pics inside, I forget the reason so this was the most recent. 
Looks the same right?  Except now we have a house on the right of us being built.  And that was the other reason we went to check ours out.  Doesn't that house look like its touching ours?  It isn't, it's just the angle of the picture.  There's about as much space as there is on our left side.  It's funny cause if we had looked at these houses a few years ago there's no way we would have been ok with a 15' backyard and our neighbors so close.  But now we're ok with it.  It's the community that really sold us. 
So here's some new pics of the house with some walls.  
The kitchen bar and nook.  On that left wall is where the stove and oven go.  That opening for the closet is the pantry.
The living room.  That's the wall straight ahead that the TV will go on.  We had them wire the outlet higher so that we would mount the TV.  
That's the master shower.  You figured that out by the way I'm washing my hair right?  lol   So the shower has a bench seat and a nice little ledge on the side.  It will all be tiled.  
This is the Alicia's bathroom.  Her bathroom has a tub shower.  I like that there is a little built in shelf for shampoo, soap, whatever.  
So like I said it's getting there.  It totally looks different with walls.  And with the walls and ceilings up we did notice that they didn't put some lights where we wanted.  We are having can lights put in the kitchen, dining room, den and living room and in the living room they put them in the wrong place.  So Kev met the contractor out there a couple days after Alicia and I had been out there and noticed and he realized they weren't right and is going to fix them.  He told Kev it may just be easier to add the two where we want them and leave the others where they are rather then moving them so we may have a couple extra lights, which is fine.  But at least we'll have the two where we wanted them.  
More updates soon....I hope!!!
As of January 2009, I no longer have a job. It's not that I lost it, but after 26 1/2 years of working at the Post Office, I retired. According to everyone I know, I don't do anything all day, so I decided to start a blog. Now I can blog about what I don't do all day. I am married to Kevin, who is the most awesome husband I could ever have. It's because of him, that I do not go to work any more. I love that and I love him for that. Between the 2 of us we have 4 children. Hunter 31, Heather 29, Paul 28 and Alicia 26.
