Project Update: Our House


OK, so I know I said last week that I wasn't going to update on our house again but I am just too excited with the progress not to! They have started to install the plumbing fixtures and as you can see, some of my Visual Comfort lights have arrived, hopefully more soon.


The 10mm frame-less glass is installed in the showers and I am loving the polished chrome handle I found, a bit different that the usual suspects.


 The our closets are almost completed, just waiting on the bank of drawers to be installed and my lights to arrive. This past we also had all of the carpet installed, hard to tell with the coverings but loving the cream wool I went with.


Lights and final plumbing fixtures installed in the boys bathroom, just waiting the mirrors and wallpaper install.


In the guest bathroom on the upper level the Vouge Bay Bubbles backsplash has been installed along with the faucet, while it is the wrong one (supposed to have white handles) we have something there until the right one comes in.


 The kitchen is also starting to take shape. Our custom stainless hood is being templated today and hoping to get it by the second week in June, fingers crossed. Also loving the custom corbels that our finishers & I designed.

Appliances are delivered and what can be installed has been. Just waiting on the marble counters & splash along with the butcher block island top. I know my girl Victoria is on it for me...she is trying to keep all of those cute Italian boys at the granite shop in line. ;)


 The shaker style alder beams are completed, stained, and awesome. The stone work was completed yesterday morning so the mortar is still quiet wet and will lighten up a substantial amount, I love the warmth the stone adds to the white filled space.

 The powder room is ready for the marble so the plumbing can be finished off. I am loving the high gloss walls, the Hubs, not so much. He wins some and he loses some, this is one he lost. Mud room is pretty much completed, just need to order up some nice polished nickel hooks for the 'lockers' and awaiting the Hicks lights.


 The Ocean Blue Vein Cut foyer tile was installed this past weekend as well. I know, shocker, I had it installed in a chevron pattern. The tile is oh so pretty and the lineal lines of it work with the pattern. 


Below is my gym, part of my 13 hour Sunday that I put in at the house. Lovin' the stripes and with my canary yellow pullup bar and a few other fun items I have found I know I will enjoy spending time in this space.


Bar & wine room are awaiting final electrical and the 10mm framless glass walls...I will admit that I am excited to see this space finished. While it did turn out a thousand times larger than it was supposed to I know it will see many fun nights! Carpet, railing, wainscoting on the stairs...done!


 Finally lets not forget the weather, OH THE WEATHER!!! Lets just say my Hunters have been my best investment in a long long time. And yes, that is my foot covered in mud/rain/muck/yuck! The site is a mess, we are averaging one tow truck a day right now. So Mother Nature, besides all of the muck you are delaying the exterior work and landscaping. I see a lot of baths for 2 little guys in my future!!


 I have a lot more to share with all of you, a super fun kitchen I am working on and as all of the jobs that we currently have in the design phase. More to come soon!!! Mel xo
