Countertops and Landscaping

Several different areas of the house have been worked on in the past couple of days. All of the rooms have been painted, landscaping has started and countertops and sinks were installed. Now we have all the final touches and we will be close to moving in.


West Side of the House – Landscaping

They started the landscaping by putting some of the rock down around the house. I wasn’t expecting it to run the whole west side of the house, only around the stoop. The landscaper suggested it because there isn’t a lot of light and the grass doesn’t grow well in that area. I was a little shocked to see the rock in the bushes. I figured I would let the landscaper do his thing and see if I like it better once it’s done.

Back of the House – Landscaping

There was a ton of brick and wood on the backside and east side of our shed. They cleared that all out and added the same rock that they had on the west side of the house. Hopefully this will help cut back some of the weeds that can grow behind the shed.

They also started burying the downspouts around the house.

Kitchen – Cabinets

All of our counter tops are installed. They have to come back and do some more work on them, but I like the granite that we ended up going with. We kept going back and forth on changing the center island to maybe darker granite, but I am glad we stuck with the lighter one. We also chose to go with granite instead of marble. We were told the marble holds stains and wouldn’t work as well in the kitchen as granite.

Laundry Room – Cabinets

Laundry room granite is in. I was scared that more of the brown in the granite would pull out instead of the gray, but I think that the light gray walls helped. The floor tile should also help to make the gray stand out. Notice how the gap in the center of the countertop to feed my fabric through blends in more. Our sink also went in the laundry room, which we didn’t originally plan to have but we were convinced by our builder to have one. The faucets will be going in the next few weeks.

Dining Room – Cabinets

We used the same granite that we picked for the kitchen for the dining room cabinets. They still have to tile the backsplash and add the glass to all of the cabinets and then the Dining Room will almost be complete.

Downstairs Bathroom – Countertops

We chose Carrera Marble for all of the bathrooms. This was the first real time that I got to see the cabinets unwrapped, since it’s always been prepped for painting.

Baby’s Bedroom – Paint

They started to paint the baby’s room in the same color as our living room, but I just hated it. It wasn’t the right shade to match the rest of what I am planning for his nursery, so I called our builder to have him change it to the same color as our Master bedroom. I like it a lot better!

Maren’s Bedroom – Paint

Maren told her uncle Trevor this weekend that her bedroom was the room that brightened up the house. She said it was because it was the only non-gray room. She has picked this color forever and it is very similar to what Alexa originally had in her bedroom before the rebuild.
