From Start to Finish

Have you ever seen a house being built from the ground up, well here you go.

Isn't that amazing?

I am pretty much in love with this house. I love the open layout, the exterior, the location. Especially the location. It is so peaceful but still close to town.

Would I do anything different? Yes, but there is only so much in a pocketbook. I would have loved to do more detail on the exterior and do some type of stone with the brick. I would have loved to have a formal dining room (but really how often would we have used it); so that was one of the places we cut when we had to cut back on square footage. I would have loved to have a walk-in pantry; but I have more cabinet space than what I know what to do with. I like to call our house our affordable dream home.

I think one of my favorite rooms is the kitchen. I love everything about it. It's very functional with a lot of cabinet space. I also love that it is open to our living area, so I can still keep an eye on the kids.

 

Some other details that I appreciate:

The tile work around the fireplace  
 

The crown molding around the banister
 

The windows that bring in a lot of natural light with a beautiful view of our lake.
Tyler's room





I mentioned the other day that the driveway was the last big task that we needed to finish. But when you own a home you always have a to-do-list. Some other projects that are still on the list to complete are finishing the basement and finishing Tyler's accessible bathroom but those are going to have to wait just a little bit longer.
