It seems to be that I seem to only get here on Tuesdays lol. That should be changing soon! Fingers crossed for a call re: another new job! Otherwise, I will be starting something else on Thursday!
Anyhow, we went and took another look at the house last week. There still really, wasn't a lot to look at, but I had my camera, so I took random shots anyhow.
I also, had a nice little post all ready to go, since I had taken some photos of possible new furniture options.... and then there was a screw up with my blackberry, and they never sent. Unfortunately, I had deleted them already, so I will get out there again this week sometime!
Here's the progress on the house so far, which is really not too much different than last time, but they're with an actual camera, so I figured I would share!

They managed to pour the concrete in our garage

And also, in the basement... while this doesn't look like much, eventually it will hold a half bath, and a beautiful laundry room!

One thing that was really exciting to see, was that our cabinets had arrived! They weren't yet installed, but clumped in boxes in the living room, but finding them all tagged, was fantastic!
Here's a sneak peek at the color of the cabinetry, I selected. I believe it is either coffee bean or java...
And here's the room that they'll go in:

This is the view we'll have from our dining and living room windows, to the backyard. It'll be awesome sitting out on the large deck in the summer! We're so amazed at how awesome the yard will be with the walk-out basement!

Cory's standing right where my sofa is gonna go, in the living room. I'm also thinking beautiful dark wood blinds, flanked by beautiful drapes I will make!

One big project that I have already commission is the fireplace mantel! As you can see so far, there's not much special going on with the fireplace. Aside for a tile surround, their option was a shitty little "shelf" that can more accurately be described as a picture ledge. So, I opted to go without, and found one much more to my liking. In fact, I saw a picture of it in a magazine, and sent it off to my favorite contractor - MY MOM!!! She's already purchased some of the materials, but needs to come in and get some measurements. It probably won't be ready before we move in, but it is something I really looking forward to!!!

Anyhow, there's lots more, but I will leave you with that!

Have a great one!

Love the color of your kitchen cabinets. Wish we had the choice for that color. We ended up with Rouge. Our house is really coming along. I need to put some updates up on my blog.
