Finally moving along again!

This week they finished bricking the front of the house! People have been asking me what we're doing on the front since there was a big gap without brick for so long! We also got our interior doors so they'll start hanging them next week. ALSO, they put the paneling on the roof of the back deck and front porch! Yay!

I think it might be time to mow the lawn.

Front door has a sealer on it

Doors in the garage...waiting to be hung!

I met with our cabinet man today. I finalized cabinet doors and saw our cabinet boxes for the kitchen and laundry room. Everything looks so good!

Here's our hood:

Slooooooooooow times

There is not a lot to report on and it's frustrating! We had some (more) holdups with inspections. The temp to perm (for power) was a headache. We have been waiting on our door for months. It started out as "6-8 weeks"...."2 more weeks"....."2 more weeks"...."any day now". It's finally here! Now we can get the remainder of the brick up! Below is a picture of our new door. I am very pleased with it! We'll stain it later.

The interior walls are all primed. I have been working on paint colors. About 6 months ago, I met with an interior designer (just for paint and tile because I am afraid of making a major mistake!). I will use a lot of her suggestions. However, I got samples of paint and put them on the wall. There are some colors that will definitely not be used! They don't look good at all! It's amazing how different a paint swatch looks on the wall! Below are my kitchen samples (cabinet finish, granite, and wall color). My friends at school helped me choose this color!

Hopefully, things will speed up a little. I am getting impatient!
