Do you remember this post? Demolition Day!
Here’s a look at the current state of our new house. I tried to put the pics in the same order, or as close to it as I could as in the previous post. It really only took one day to remove everything that needed to be removed. All the rooms look so different now. The bathrooms are especially interesting, since they removed some of the soffits so you can look all the way through the attic and see the roof. Ally thought it was so cool and wanted to crawl up there. I’m just excited that things are happening now. Ash and I went to the flooring store on Sunday and after my initial reaction of wanting to run away screaming (there’s sooooo much), we got to work and compared options. We had no problem at all picking out bathroom tile and it seems all of us are on the same page when it comes to that. Check!
The flooring on the other hand may become an issue. I had initially thought to go with the tile that looks like wood but really don’t want that in the bedrooms. We looked at both hardwood flooring and bamboo, as options. I like both. But, we ended up picking colors a lot darker then we had originally thought. I like light colors. But walking through the store, it just didn’t feel right. Don’t get me wrong, I think the white-washed and grey-toned wood looks stunning, I just don’t think it fits with the house. I want to speak with our gc and see what he has to say. I trust his opinion and figure he knows what he’s doing. He works on many different homes and knows what works and what doesn’t. So that battle is not quite won. Wish us luck!!!
Have a wonderful day!
*Update: We stopped by the house again today since Ashley’s friend was coming home with us after school and hadn’t seen it yet. A few more walls, actually the drywalls, are gone now as well. The house truly is a construction zone at this point. I’m drowning in faucets, bathtubs and tile… so, so, so many choices. It’s way overwhelming. I’m pinning and saving things on house and in my note app like crazy. And I’m in the process of creating a Google doc (I LOVE Google docs) with everything listed out by room. That way I get all the stuff organized and my brain as well. 🙂
