The framers were able to completely frame the house out in less than one week, and when we were taking these photos, the shingles were being put on!
The windows had arrived, and those are being put in later this week. We also met with the cabinet maker and plumber to get all of the cabinets and vanities figured out as well!
We have also begun the process of picking out furniture that we might want for the house, as well as figuring out where our existing furniture will go! If you and your partner have built a house, we would love to know what you thought the most difficult part of it was!
A few things I’m loving for the new house
- Any of these gorgeous pillows from Anthropologie. Love the mix of textures and natural colors!
- This flatware set, I never knew I would be so excited by cutlery!
- This chandelier is really close to what we are actually getting from a local lighting gallery, and I’m obsessed!
- I don’t think I’ve ever loved a patio set more than this one from Target, it really fits in with the vibe I have for the house!
