Ground Breaking Update

Pardon the pun, but how many times can I use it besides this one because

WE BROKE GROUND!

We were slightly delayed due to rain, but our lot is officially being worked on. My husband, Brygham and I had a meeting with the project manager for our house and we feel so great about the process. We weren’t nervous, but knowing that we are in such capable hands takes so much worry away. He brought up questions that I had before I even had a change to ask.

Our house is on a crawl space, so they had to dig the footings and then pour the concrete for the crawl. We still have an estimated move-in of late August, which is perfect timing.

I thought it would be a good idea to give you an idea of the general style of our house as well. We were lucky enough to be able to pick all of the finishes on our home and Brygham and I are both huge fans of the modern farmhouse aesthetic.

For the kitchen, we stayed mostly modern with white quartz and a subway tile backsplash. We feel that the light gray cabinets really break up the white and will make the space feel warmer. We went back and forth on the grout color, Brygham really loved the idea of a gray grout but ultimately we decided on just a plain white grout.

The whole downstairs will be the beautiful dark hardwoods except the laundry room and the craft room so we thought the light accents in the kitchen would be a great addition.

The bathroom will have darker cabinets with the gorgeous “hardwood” tile. The lighter tile at the bottom will be the master bathroom shower.

And this is the outside of our house! We’re doing a completely blue house with black shutters, white trim and a bright red door.

We are so excited to be finally starting! Plenty of more pictures to come throughout the process – and thank you for joining me for it!

      1. We actually have 5+ different places to go, no handy design center. Did you select towel bars? That is the one thing not included in our contract and it was the same for my sister who built in Oklahoma

      2. Now that you mention it, I never specifically chose the towel bars, but I think they’re included in the “bathroom package” that had the toilet paper holder, hand towel bar, etc. It was an outrageous amount of money to upgrade from the standard shiny chrome, so we’re just going to switch it out later on our own dime.
