Meeting with the architect...this is becoming real!!

Friday, July 26, 2013

We met with architect on Monday with our builder to express our wants for our new home. I sent him a bunch of pictures of things that I wanted that I wanted to share. Pinterest and Houzz are GREAT websites for getting ideas.

Appliance garage. Is that not freaking cool?!?! The outlets are there so the coffee maker, toaster, can opener, are usable but then you shut them away when you are done. I want to have one with my hair appliances and Jason to have one for his police gear in our closet.

Dog Food Storage!!

Mudroom with extra storage in laundry room. A place for me to throw all my school stuff every day. Can't wait for that!

Kitchen Storage

Ledge in master shower for shampoo/conditioner/razors/etc

Keep your nasty sponges tucked away.

We have tons of books so we need something neat like that.

Racks for hanging laundry.

I want a front door but also a screen door too so the doggies can look out!!

I'll keep everyone updated on how things are progressing when I can. We are finally to this point. Yay!!!!!

    Nelljones, good point about bugs. We haven't had the bug problems, but I will bring that up to our builder. The food is currently in a plastic tote so I don't know if we should build a cabinet around that or find another narrow container that will seal up.

Definitely do Pinterest. Tons of ideas there!

    woo woo! What great ideas. I love the appliance garage and the drawers in the kitchen cabinets best of all.

    I am in the middle of a kitchen remodel right now. The builder ordered two wrong cabinets, which will add 2 more weeks to the job, but other than that they are doing great. Be prepared, though, because there are more decisions than you ever imagined. Where do you want the switches for the new lights you want? I worked on my vision of the lights, but not the switches. I also found out why contractors prefer quartz countertops to natural stone: all of each style is the same. With stone, each slab is different.

I don't know about open dog food bins. I keep my dry cat food sealed up. Bugs like open food of any kind, wherever it may be. Something I learned the hard way some years back.
