things have finally started to pick up at our house. the framers have been hard at work the past three days so each evening jeff and i are eager to go by to see what has been completed. i usually get a preview earlier in the day when our contractor calls me to come by and make a few minor decisions. i love that he keeps me in the loop on everything, but i seriously had no idea there would be so many options on the littlest things. and when i'm given an option, i have to contemplate over it a while - that's just how i'm wired. at times i feel my brain is mush from all the decisions i need to make ;)
we now have stairs. and an extra wall. the wall is not suppose to be there so hopefully it will be coming down soon.
when i think they couldn't possibly take out any more - they do.
this is the new addition in the back of the house. it will add space to our kitchen and a mudroom.
our windows came in and are now installed.
and the hardi is being put on. they are about 1/4 done. and no, that is not the final color. that is just the color it comes in. (i'm sure most of you know that, but it never fails that i will get an email from someone asking me these things.)
this is the latest detail to make my brain mush. what should i do with this area on the front gable? it looks to have some kind of stucco/concrete texture stuff on it now, but what should i do? repair it and keep it? change it?
here are some ideas i've found so far...
