A little bit closer…

May 26, 2012
My husband was sweet to stop by the house on his way home yesterday and take a few pictures for me.  The crew finished hanging the cabinetry, as well as the moulding (for the most part).  Its coming together beautifully.  To see the walls painted, flooring in, and counter tops in will be an exciting day for us.

I love these carriage style doors.

Double porches will be so nice during the hot summer months. Ceiling fans will be installed.


The french doors lead into my office.

Lots to do still in the kitchen.  There will be dark handscrapped 5″ hardwoods, granite counter tops, and beadboard. I think I am also going to hang 2 jadite colored barn lights by Barn Light Electric over the island.  The cabinet hardware will be the Oil rubbed bronze Gilmore pulls & knobs by Restoration Hardware.

The dark flooring below is the one we chose.

The double doors are to the pantry & the door to the right is to the mudroom.

Eat in area in the kitchen (and living room in the back).

 Formal living room.

 Master bedroom & doors to the huge closet. It runs the entire length of the master bedroom. I will never have enough clothes to fill it.

Master bedroom. Door on left is bath, middle will be french doors leading to the sitting room, and the door to right is hallway.

Master bedroom.

Another view into the kitchen. There will be a high bar with bar stools in the middle.

More pictures to come soon.
