Almost done....!!!!

I hope everyone has a great holiday season and are ready to kick-off the New Year!!!

Since last time, once again, the crew has been busy at it.  These blogs should be two seperate postings with all of the work they have gotten done, but it just means more photos, and well, those are the best part anyways!

Our cabinets have been birthed out of their boxes and look amazing all drilled in!!!

Here is a few views of our kitchen
Next, is a photo of our guest bathroom upstairs

You probably notice there is a counter top here, that is because we stuck with standard fermica.  To have granite for this bathroom was about $300  and we knew we could shop it and get it cheaper through a handy man. 

Next is our master bathroom, where we extended the cherry cabinets
This will be topped with the uba tuba granite and his and hers sinks!

All of the above was done one day.... here is what has happened since then......

We are under lock and key, finally!  Yay!

Now we are tying in all the odds and ends.  All the little things that bring a smile! 

We have door knobs!!! This is quite commical to me, you would never think door knobs would be so exciting, but if you have built a house I guess you understand, lol.

My beloved banister!!!!  Since it has been installed I just can't get over how much I love it.  I am kind of wishing I had this done upstairs instead of the solid wall, but I guess it is something that can be done later down the road if I really wanted it.

We have shower heads and faucets!!!!  I will probably swap these out over the year.  I really want a rain shower head for the master bathroom and something more antique looking for the bathtub.

Master bathroom lighting

The infamous foyer light.  This fixture really is HUGE, the photo does not do it justice.

Small porch light.  I think this is just adorable!

Our sprinkler system all installed and ready for the sod!

And lastly, our driveway!!!!!!

So you are probably thinking the same things as me.  YOUR ALMOST DONE!!!!! It has been such an exciting road.  I feel so blessed to have had the privelege to build our first home.  We have received our closing dates and they are as follows. 

Completion of house: January 19th
Final walk through: January 23rd
Closing: January 26th

Then we start moving in!!!!!!!
