We’re baaaaaaAAAAAAck!! After taking a bit of a hiatus over the holidays, the home- build is back in action!!!! We are so ready for this next phase of construction…..the excitement builds with each passing day.
Stepping back for a moment…over the past couple of weeks, little elves visited our home and performed some miraculous work on the interior. As suttle as it may seem in pictures, it is pretty dramatic in person. What are we talking about…….three things…..texturing, primer, and paint!! Yes I said it….”Paint!”, on the walls and on the ceiling! Our walls are painted!!!! Can I say it again………there is paint, actual color on them there walls!!!! The painting side of the contract includes 3 colors…additional paint = additional $$. We wanted 5 colors, so we paid a little more, but really, it was well worth it given the amount of time it would have taken Tami (she’s the painter of the family) to paint the extra colors.
I tried getting pictures of the texturing, but it didn’t photograph to well…..the colors also wash out a bit in the pictures, so when you look at them, keep in mind that they are a bit richer in color than what it looks like in photos.
The other wall color is Grayish (we are repainting that color because it came out to purpley), and then Dover White on all of the ceilings. Below is the one picture I have of the texturing, and it is carried throughout the house.
So the quality of these pictures tell me that I really need to invest in a new camera. They just don’t represent the richness of the colors very well. I had to do a lot of exposure enhancing to try to bring out some of the colors. Maybe with added contrast (i.e. the trim and cabinets, etc.) it will photograph better.
That takes me to the future….coming up this next week, REALLY, REALLY exciting things start to happen on the interior of our home. I can’t wait to see it…………..
In the meantime, our family wishes your’s a very blessed year for 2012. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
