When it comes to building a home, there are so many decisions! After we decided we wanted to build, we had to pick what model we wanted. We went back and forth over this, but decided to go with the Seth model from Richmond.
My favorite thing about this model is the upstairs loft. When my kids are older, I want them to bring their kids over to our house. That way, I will get to know their friends and hopefully have an idea of what they are doing! Some of my favorite other features:
* a separate bath and shower in the master bath
* 4 rooms on 1 floor
*An upstairs laundry room
*A nice big island in the kitchen
Our house is currently framed. They are now working on the siding, interior mechanics, and plumbing. We have had one appointment to pick out all of our finishes, and will have our final one in a couple weeks. Both Garrett and I are extremely happy with what we have picked out so far, with the exception of carpet. The standard options are terrible, and their are very few options in the gray color scheme that aren't crazy expensive. Here are a few things we have picked out.
*The exterior is a tan, with dark brown trim and stone. We didn't get to pick this out, but it should look good!
* White cabinets. This is the thing I wanted more than anything in the house. Garrett wasn't a huge fan at first, but he came around.
*Dark engineered wood. Its slightly distressed, which I am a fan of with a crazy boy in the house.
*A light gray speckled granite.
(This picture is pretty terrible, but you get the idea)
*Gray paint. I am a little worried its too dark for all over the house. Any thoughts?
*And here is a picture of the cabinets, backsplash, wood, and granite. I am trying to use warm grays, so they won't contrast with tans and browns. I LOVE gray, but I need it to work with everything that I already have.
I am sure I will have a lot more to say about our house down the road! I LOVE decorating and designing, so this whole process has been a blast for me. If only I had an endless budget......
