New House Adventure Week 19

This week they added our cupboards and some of our countertops.  They haven't yet put the granite in the kitchen, but in the bathrooms and laundry rooms, it is in.  And it looks fab!  They also put the garage door on, but haven't yet installed the door that goes on the third car garage.  Here are some pics!

I love my garage door, with the handles and the windows.  So quaint!


The cupboards in the kitchen...love how dark they are - I think they turned out looking great.


The contrast of the dark cupboards with the lighter looking, distressed wood floor.  I like the contrast they make - of course they are both extremely dusty, and will look better once cleaned.


Cupboards and countertop in the master bath...


The  laundry room...

Mila chillin in the laundry room...she looks so teeny, it makes me laugh.  :)


The kids bathroom...

Cade scopin' out the back yard...

Another view of my glorious cupboards...

Clearly I love them..

The view of our house from the neighbor's yard, across the street.


So we are hopin to be in this sucka by the end of the month.  They say that once countertops are installed, the house will be ready within 12 days, and then add 6 or so days to close, etc.  So that gives us, what?  Just under three weeks?  I hope this happens!

UPDATE:
About 20 minutes after I posted this, Brandon called me with bad news.  Our builder said that we are not going to be mving in until mid-August.  I am devastated.  I have NO IDEA what the EFF is going to take so long, as everything is pretty much already done.  I am so sad.

I know it's difficult, but just suspend concern with deadlines. We bought our house a year ago and assumed extensive renovations would be complete in a few months. We're still waiting for a few things to be completed! I'm now an expert at not seeing the incomplete work...and I'm much happier.

Love the house! I see good times there for you all. :)
Oh that is too bad about August. At least it is coming up soon. This summer is going by too fast!

Mila is so tiny in that picture. It shows how spacious your laundry room is. Like I've said to Brando....I love your floor plan! You guys did great. All the details are fab!

That is one sexy house. A sexy house that will be worth the wait.
