Finally another new house update! I just check and it was Jan 20/09 when I did the last update and a lot has changed since then. The whole main part of the house is dry walled and painted. The kitchen is in and it is lovely. We laid tile down in the kitchen and foyer, my husband is/was putting those down. He just needs to lay a few more in the foyer and then grout it there. We had the kitchen and eating area done just in time for the new kitchen. Today hardwood was being laid upstairs. We decided to have hardwood and area rugs, no wall to wall carpet in this house. The hardwood is being put down by others.
So here are some pics of the kitchen! I have such a lovely view from this window. There will be so much cupboard space too. We have 9′ ceilings, so you can imagine how tall these are. Some places I will need to use a stool, but that will be for things I need, but don’t use that often. LOL Excuse the dust….
The other side, I have a lovely desk, and two big pantries and the fridge is along this wall.
My lovely island! I’m really looking forward to enjoying this. It is so big and spacious!
Our eating room floor. My husband designed and did this all himself, I did help a little, but mostly kept him company.
Most of the stone is done on this part of the house. This is the garage and where my parents will be living once it is finished inside. We will be sharing the main part of the house for a few months.
This pictures was taken a couple of weeks ago, now the stone is just to the top of the windows. We have been having some cooler weather, so the brick layer hasn’t been able to do as much, since it is not all tarped in like he had it during the cold winter months.
Anyway, we are seeing the end coming in view. Still lots to do, but we are getting there. This had been such a big project and taken so much of my dear husband’s time. God has been good and we are so blessed. We will have so many memories with this house.
Next time I’ll update with pictures of the new floor in the bedrooms, I hope to see that tomorrow.
