The house is coming along. There are already some things I wish I'd chosen differently, but I'm happy.
I love the light over the garage.
I think the gray siding brings out the gray in the brick. I'm just wondering. Should I have chosen a lighter gray?
Here's a bigger view from the other side.
We now have front door steps and the concrete is set for the driveway. The blue door is still my favorite but I recently almost changed it because I wondered if there was too much contrast.
I'm glad to have white cabinets again and the tile is another favorite. I think I did good there.
Here's a closer view.
This is not the chandelier that I picked out. It looks too big to me but the designer said we would need the light.
I'm looking forward to a covered deck. Although small, it's enough for us and the kids have the whole back yard. I'll post the yard when it's nearer completion. It's a mess right now.
This is the view from the road. The finishing touches will come. I'm scared that the shutters are going to be too dark. They are a deeper gray than the siding. Do you think I got a little carried away with the gray? Is the blue door too much of a contrast? Should we have gone with the other house plan so I'd have a front porch? I liked the inside layout better on this one and that's our living space. I don't think we'll be camping out on the sidewalk. I just hope we'll love it when it's all done. We've never done this before and so many decisions had to be made in a day. Whew! No wonder the gut is in spasms. I'm one big spasm. Guess I need some reassurance that my choices are good ones. After all, unless something big changes, this is our forever earthly dwelling. Glad our heavenly home has already been designed by the Great Designer of the universe.
