We have a front door!

Yep yep we officially have a front door.  Now, I am not sure if it is going to remain the color it is currently.  I won't decide until we get the siding and stone put up.  However if I do decide to paint the door, it is going to be white!

View from the front road now that all windows and the front door is in.

Front door from the inside.

Some crazy people that decided to photo bomb me.

Up close and personal view.

Things got really busy yesterday!  All of our siding showed up, our plumber-extraordinaire (does he get paid to do THAT?) delivered all the pipe, the 2 tubs for the kids bathroom and the powder room, and the guys came back to get the garage floor prepped for concrete.  Yiiipppeeeeee!!!!

I didn't mention this last week but we decided to go with a different exterior stone. Apparently the stuff we picked was a total pain in the a$$ to install and would take an eternity x 2.  Soooooo I found this stone I liked and Dan from Monroe Aluminum found it literally in less than a day and dropped the sample at our house.  Let me just tell you that that place ROCKS!!!!  Hopefully the sample really looks like what I want and we'll be back in business!


  1. Love the front door! If it is all white, it will show the dirt more - but I really like white :-)

  2. What you have squatters already.

  3. I just stumbled upon your blog! My husband and I are in our late twenties and building our home as well! I just started blogging about our experience to share with our family and friends, as well as a keepsake for us to look back on when this crazy process is over. We aren't very far with construction yet - have our foundation done, but that's about it. I love your posts. I'll keep checking back to see how your amazing house is coming along.

    I don't have a lot up yet - only 7 posts, but it's a start!
    Happy house building!
