::august 1st-9th::

I got behind by three days, but some serious stuff has gone down.  We are DAYS away from move in.  I'm kinda freaking out.  

Counter tops went in.  They are exactly what I wanted.

The boys counter with trough sink is making me wish I put it in our bathroom.

Since all I cook is corn dogs this oven may be over kill. 
Ok - truth is the kids make their own corn dogs, and they use the microwave.

We tried painting our old fridge with chalkboard paint to use it in the pantry.
The kids loved it but overall it ended up looking big and sloppy.
Fail and remove.  Try again.

Lily's bed nook is almost all done.  Just the charging cut out to paint.  

Details like door knobs are getting finished up. 

Laundry sink went in.  

Drawer pulls are on. 

First day of school and they caught the bus from our house.
But - we still don't actually live there.  Soon.  

Best news of the week - this was the master vanity but it was damaged.  
After they sent a replacement the company let us keep it.  
The awesome contractors came up with the awesome idea of installing it in the pantry with a butcher block top.  
It looks like we meant to do it all along.  

Master bath is close to done.

Kitchen faucet went in.  

Boys bath continues to make me want to steal it.  

Doors got painted.  
I really wanted orange.  
I picked too red an orange. 
My fault. 
I think we will change them out for a more orange-ish orange.  

Part of the pantry shelves went in.  

Front details are going on.  

So much has been happening.  Tomorrow is habitability inspection, and if we pass we move might sleep there TOMORROW!!!!  It will not be done tomorrow.  Some details will still take a bit to finish up, but I just can't want to start living there.

Yellow paint went up in a few rooms.

The shower seat went in.  Its perfect in every way.

The beams for the front porch are sitting their ready to go in.

The board and batten siding is going up.  

Max's bedroom and our front door with no hallway paint.  

The gas tank got moved out of the backyard.

The siding keeps going on, and the front porch permanent beams got added.  Love that storm rolling in.  

Cutout next to Lily's bed is getting framed in.

Cooktop hood got framed in.

::third week in July::

So much is happening right now on this renovation.

The master vanity was delivered.  

Roses rally likes all our new grout.  Isn't she so cute?

That master shower is the coolest.  

All the interior doors arrived.  

The boys double faucet sink is the most amazing thing.  

The double oven cabinet kinda freaked me out because it isn't for a double oven.  Turns out you just cut out the bottom part to fit the second oven.  I was much relieved.  

The curb appeal keeps improving.  

The siding is here!

Of course I had to make Josh hold it up on the house.  

The trim around the windows is getting finished up.  

Look at all those cabinets.  It's blowing my mind.  

The sink is in and is giving me big smiles.  

Latter in the week they hung the interior doors.  

Brand new not jacked up not brass hinges - not anything like my old house.  

The boys bathroom was going to have an original beam in it that got covered on accident.  Because that bathroom is so tight on space then ended up needing to expose the beam again.  Awesome.  

"Schaefer INDY"  written on the side of the door

I couldn't take it.  I made Josh put up more of the siding for me to see.  I can't wait to see it up.  

The temporary braces on the side porch are starting to come off.  

The door trim is getting finished.  

Part of the beam int he boys bath had to get chipped out.  It sucks to cut that stunning beam but it had to happen.  

Turns out that master bath cabinet was damaged and has to go back.  
-sad face-

Look at that pretty little house.  
They just put the trim on the pony wall by the master toilet.

Love this plan with notes laying around.

The secret passage between Lily and Q room got framed in.  

We cut a piece of plywood to mock up the island counter top.  
It is going to seat 6 and be painted green.  

I can't wait to see what happens next week.
