February progress

We did a LOT in February.

We finally got the upper base installed in the living room.
Backsplash installed in pantry:
Random scraped up wood repaired:


Bathroom wall finally figured out and painted (for more on that process click HERE).


Figured out how to place mirrors in the Jack & Jill:


These electrical outlets caused me grief trying to figure out mirror placement, but it's funny how once I finally made the decision I never thought about it again.

Here it is with mirrors and frames installed...with two of the three lights:
Love this bathroom.
Got ready to finally have a driveway:


...and then got it poured.



Got my "cleaning ladies" going over there a few times...

Got appliances...so exciting.

Our cabinets were a little mis-sized for them so we had to re-do a little woodwork.

Got stone on these back pillars of "Sundance."

We went to a lighting factory that can make lights for our exterior since we couldn't find anything that would work.
Ours will be similar to these but without those thingies across so much of it.

Got the backsplash done.  Love how it turned out.

Finally got some of the cabinet doors on that they had been working on.

Got this drinking fountain in...in the wrong place...just leaving it.  It's been soooooo well-used.  

Max's bathroom still needed a few doors...

Tried to figure out handles.
Boy howdy that threw me for a loop.

Moved this floating cabinet over to center it more (we were a little off on our measurements).

Finally got the back panel put on the waterfall counter (HERE).

Got the cabinets put on our fireplace wall:
See them camouflaged in there?

Got carpet installed.
(Yay!)

Worked more on these cabinets.



Our game room went from this:
...to this:

Had some deliberation on how to install the back-lit powder mirror.



Max's bathroom

Shower door installed in Max's bath.
And our shower too.



Got the paneling in on the fridge.
Ready for locker doors in the mudroom.

Phew.

I need a nap:)

  7. Hi Shawni, we are building a home right now and are getting to the finish-work-decisions phase....I am so thankful for this blog--I love so much of what you have done! My husband and I fell in love with your Fossil Stone floors. We love the look of them and just wondered how you feel about them now that you've lived on them for a while. Are they easy to keep up, do they feel comfortable, and how scratch resistant so far?

    Thanks again for all of the detail you put into your home blog, you have such great taste! :)

  10. Congrats, Shawni! It is GORGEOUS. I show my husband probably every post so we can day dream about our someday dream house, which will hopefully be a little replica of yours! You have great style. Love how modern it is with just a nod to traditional.

  13. Seems like a lot of work - but in the end it looks all really great!!
    After having seen so much of the different rooms and the house, I wonder whether you would mind sharing some sort of vague layout - because with all these rooms I can barely imagine how they all lay together in one house.

    Thanks for sharing so much of your house planning process - makes me wish for a house to shape in my very own way. But at least I can sit and dream with your pictures ;-)

  15. Many homeowners have been replacing their old windows with the double glazed ones due to a number of reasons. Double glazed windows are good at reducing noise and heat transfer.guarantor loans

  17. It is a direct result of this very reason when these home apparatuses create blames and quit working, we get disappointed and need them to be settled immediately. https://knifegeeky.com/best-bowie-knife/
