In the spirit of the great Andy Rooney………….
Ever wonder what happens after the interior of a home is painted?
Ever wonder what all those boxes sitting in your garage might be?
Ever wonder how you go to work in the morning and come home to such an extreme change in your home by the evening?
Wonder what I’m talking about???
It’s all about cabinets, doors, flooring, accessories, and trim work.
This past week started as expected, with the work week beginning on Monday, everything basically going as status quoa (as boring as that sounds there is some niceness to that.) Tony told me to be prepared because we were expecting a big delivery on Tuesday by about 10 AM. Although it was a little later in the day……..the huge truck, eventually, rolled up our driveway holding within it’s grasp the major components and accents that will add real beauty to our home. As the truck was unloaded, all of the wood and flooring products were brought into the house to acclamate to the indoor temperature. The porcelain, and metal type products have made the garage their temporary dwelling. So as we walked into our home on Tuesday night…this is what we saw…..
Adair Homes builds their cabinets in their own home layout….they actually build the cabinets into the same space as they will be installed in the new homes. We did not go with a 100% wood cabinet as we couldn’t justify the additional cost. However, we were able to do some upgrading in the kitchen and bathrooms…..but that story is for another day! 🙂
You can see through the windows in this picture how dark it is at about 5:20 at night!! I couldn’t get really good detailed pictures of a lot of things due to lack of light (the electrical side is not yet completed.) Tony rigged a string of construction type lights throughout the house, but at this phase of the construction, they were more of a hinderance than a help so they came down. Photographing is difficult in the dark, and we basically don’t really get to see the true progress until the weekends where we can see how the colors really blend together in full light! It is, however, an added treat for the weekend to have a gift to unwrap on Saturday mornings, even though we have a preview each evening…the difference is usally quite nice.
So this Saturday, when we entered into our home for the first time seeing it in the light of day, this is what we saw……….
With all the excitement of the interior of the house coming together, Mother Nature decided to drop a wonderful white covering to the Pacific Northwest. The only thing better would be to be able to share it with our family and friends back….where we used to call home. I hope I can drive in this to go to work tomorrow…….
Next week promises to bring another exciting episode…..to be continued!!
