Our new house
I drive by our new house about 5 to 6 times a day some days as I always have that corner , so I get to see how things are coming along , over the last couple of days the oak stairs have gone in and the final door was installed yesterday in the family room, so exciting .
I am so pleased to share with you that we have signed and this house is now our house ....our house is a very very fine house , it is literally so exciting , we had no plans on moving right now , it was over the horizon but now it is possibly only a just a few months off , don't know when we will be moving exactly ,but we will be offering the house for sale in a couple of weeks after I get everything just right...I just yesterday completed building and installing a custom closet in our master walk-in, one of those things I should have done a long time ago , it has so much more storage now.
I am also thrilled to have a separate shower I have never had one , I think I will really like it , I am looking forward to tiling the shower base myself, that is one place to splurge with something special.I've been pricing out marble counters for Sophie's bath per her request , I think I need to convince her to go with something more durable like quartz that looks like marble.
So there we have it , I am waiting for the call to go in and make all of our selections , some are easier than others , some upgrades we will do ourselves because the builder pricing can be steep for things like hardwood, it is just better to do that ourselves and some of the tiling depending on what their selections are , they have Debbie Travis options at our design center, whoo hoo , I am looking for white subway tile in the bathrooms, I almost feel bad for the design person that gets me, wouldn't you ?
