Sneak Preview (Photo)

Sunday, July 13, 2014

I know I said I wasn't going to post any more pictures of the house until it was finished; but I'm a gal with very little patience. At the rate things are going, although there is a lot of activity, our "move in" date keeps getting pushed back. When I ask about when the carpet is going in I get the answer "not until the very end." I think the real reason is that when the carpet goes in, I'm letting the furniture company deliver the furniture.

But anyway, I went up yesterday and painted the garage door. Yep! I did it myself. Inside three of my window coverings have arrived thus far, so they went up too. And no, I didn't tackle that job myself, I had a handyman. So they are up in the Kitchen, Utility Room and Master Bedroom. I love the kitchen, because although I ordered the wood blinds, this time I got the 2-1/2 inch size and..... I opted for cloth tapes over the ropes that control up and down and slant. Wow! It makes them look sooooooo much better. I picked one that is dark brown, with little leaves scattered on it. Did the same in the Utility room, but the cloth tape in there is muted little squares with just a touch of tan in them.

The front door with it's big oval window in it has been painted bright red. The man who has the identical same house about 1/2 mile away, stopped by and asked if I thought the front door was bright enough. My answer was "no." lol

Here is the preview I promised -- only an outside photo for now. Sorry it is not a better photo, but with my eye problem it's very difficult for me to take pictures in bright sunlight.

Maybe someday we will get to actually move in and a bit of my stress will go away, in the meantime I remain fat and frustrated!

    Wow, you painted the garage door all by yourself?!?! That was a Big job!!! Congrats!
I know you are so anxious to get furniture in and spend some quality time there, but perseverance wins!
The blinds you described sound marvelous!! I wanted something similar in my kitchen, but they were cost prohibitive for us. As dirty as my curtains get, I guess it's best we didn't go that route anyway! hehe
It's a lovely house, Eve and I'm sure that once you're in, it will be an even more lovely home!!!
My prayer for you is that all these delays in getting your house done only means they will have it ALL done and ALL DONE RIGHT! No omissions, nothing wonky, everything works properly and everything is safe and secure.
Love ya!! Keep the faith! (((HUGS)))

    Hey Eve!
House looks great! Just realized I have the exact same color scheme on my door and all! LOL The window however is very large pieced stain glass rectangle instead of an oval but....the same!!! Great minds think alike????

Everyday your a little closer. No your not FAT, bigger than what you'd like perhaps, but NOT FAT!

It's all going to come together soon.

The days of house headaches are coming closer, closer, closer, closer..........

    Don't sorry. Eve... the house is lovely and it's coming along and it WILL be finished before you know it. Try not to let the delays frustrate you. Meanwhile, you're NOT fat. You look great! emoticon I'm praying blessings over you, your family (including furry ones) and your new home! emoticon
