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!
