I'm A Tease, Update 1

I promised there had been a lot of activity at the house since my last update.  I don't let down on a promise.  Since the last house post we have finished all of the brick work, inside and out, got a mailbox, had cabinetry installed, stained the wood work, got a shower floor in the master bath and the whole house was painted from top to bottom.  This coming week is full of activity, as we are entering the last couple of weeks of construction.  Now I'm going to hush up and let the pictures speak for themselves...
This is from the living room into the kitchen. 

Looking from the kitchen/dining room into the living area.  The mantel will be stacked stone.  That big box is my whirlpool tub.  Jealous much?
Tray ceiling in the living room. 
Bricked wall in the kitchen.  Imagine beautiful double ovens in that cabinet on the right and a fun chalk board door on the pantry. 
Wall of built ins in Dustin's office.  This color scared me, but it turned out really, really well.  For orange, anyway.
This is the dining room.  Turned out a little brighter than I expected, but I think it will be okay.  If we get in and I decide I don't like it, I can always paint over it.  It's growing on me, though.  What do you think?

I promise, we are getting really close to you all not having to read these house updates anymore.  Maybe just a couple more.  This week we are finishing up the stone work, inside and out, getting granite, plumbing and electrical.  Oh, and maybe tile work in the master bath.  Stay tuned! 


  1. what about miss KJ's room????????


  2. Em-
    I'm painting stripes on one of her walls, so I don't want to show off until it is finished. Crossing our fingers it turns out well!

  3. I love it! I love the blue in the dining room, too. Once the furniture and window treatments are in there, it will tie it all together and the blue won't seem like so much.
