The House - Week 34

Week 34 - June 15, 2016

If you're paying close attention, you'll notice that I've skipped week 33.  Well, that week coincides with our trip to the Outer Banks, so we missed all of the excitement.

The good news is that the house is nearly complete, so I can move onto only blogging about traveling and not this boring house stuff!

Now that our issue with our rock retaining wall was resolved, our driveway was poured.

Exterior lights.

Security cameras were installed (and a random junction box that nobody is sure what it was for, so now it just has a cover over it).

Front porch.

Light fixtures are all installed.  We got the fixture above from Lowe's for $200. Similar fixtures online were in the $1500+ range (yikes!).  We have 4 of them in the house.

Master Bedroom.

Family room.  Notice the carpet? We were most excited to see the carpet installed.  It really feels like we can almost move in now.

The homework nook.

The upstairs bedrooms.

In the toy room/bonus room.

Kate admiring the computer desk in the kitchen.

Our chandelier at our dining table.

The view of the kitchen.

Lyla testing the carpet.

We have two electrical panels, this is one of them.

The basement.

The basement to the south.

Drainage along the side of the house.

The front of the house with walkway.

When we showed up the following day counters had been installed.  We have granite in the bathrooms.

Master bathroom.

Granite in the basement kitchen.

Granite at the theater bar.

The view of the family room.

Alison testing out the granite in the master bathroom.

The view of the backyard from upstairs.

Just a regular countertop in the homework nook (formica?)

We have two tones of quartz in the kitchen.

The following day the mirrors and plumbing fixtures were installed.  The house was very nearly ready for us.

Water softener.

Shower fixtures.  I've since swapped this shower head out with one that has LEDs that change colors based on the temperature of the water.  It's pretty nifty.

Tile backsplash in the kitchen being installed.

A view of the whole kitchen.  Everything but the super heavy fridge is installed.

The brine tank for our water softener is in the garage.  I'm far too lazy to carry the bags of salt into the basement.

One last view.

Next week: Install that fridge and start waiting for Rocky Mountain Power!
