Guess what we got today??

We got POWER!  Yep official real power.  We are almost done with temporary power.  Yahoooo, life is good :-)


Annnnddddd Ryan called for our rough electrical inspection.  Since I have faith, I know he'll pass with flying colors.  THEN, it is time to call the insulation company and have them come spray the house.  You know what comes after that???  DRY WALL!!!!  Yes, my friends, I said drywall!!!  Yiippeeee I am as happy as a kid in a candy store.

Ohhhhhh AND my cabinets are only 2 weeks out (maybe less)!   If you click on the link below, and look at the cabinets on the island, you can see almost exactly what they'll look like.  The color is the color that I ordered however the door style isn't EXACTLY what I ordered but perdy damn close!!!

I usually need a picture!

Sooooooo I love to look through magazines to get ideas for the house.  I usually need a picture to give me some inspiration.  So, I found this picture and really love the idea for my laundry room....

I don't know if ya'll remember these cabinets, but we got these cabinets for the laundry room and my FIL is going to help me paint them white like the picture above (he just doesn't know it yet :P).

So, the cabinets will look perfect.  Then, I got a gift card to Bed, Bath, & Beyond for my birthday and I found the rest of these treasures to make my laundry room look JUST like the laundry room in my picture.....

The silver bar will go between the cabinets to hold my swanky wood hangers cuz as Mommy Dearest said, NO WIRE HANGERS!!!  Oh and look at my wall art that matches perfectly.  You wanna know the best part?  I paid just under 8 bucks for all of it :-)

Go ahead and take your time!!!!

Yeah that title was directed to myself....  

So here is what the outside looks like as we speak!  

Those are shakes in the peaks they are granite gray!

Full shot of both peaks.  Do you see the top window that is trimmed in white?  All of the rounded windows will look like that as well.  I LOVE it!

The garage door (love) and a full shot of the siding.  The siding on the 3 sides is charcoal gray.....a shade darker than the shakes.

And the center peak with shakes and the big dining room window all trimmed out in white <3

Here is a front shot so you can see the two different tones!

Soooo we are just about completely done with the rough electrical and plan to call on Monday for inspection.  Our plumber extraordinaire just finished the rough plumbing and heating and passed his rough inspections.  Michigan Gas came out on Monday and hooked up our gas line AND DTE comes Friday to hook up our permanent power.  Yiiiippppeeeeeee!!!  I am soooooo effing excited.  OH!!  I also ordered my kitchen cabinets and they should be here 2 weeks from Monday if not SOONER!!!

Also, I forgot to mention, that the remaining front of the house that is white will be gray stacked stone.  We *hope* that they will get started on that next week!!

Sweet baby jesus, we are going to have a house here before you know it :-)

A little sneak peak!

So I realized that I haven't shared ANY pictures with the siding on the house!  We are all done on the outside with our work.  Now we are just waiting for all of the stone to be put up on the outside.  I am sooooo excited to see what the finished product will look like.  Anywho, here is a picture of the finished patio.  You can see a little peak of the siding in the background.  I will get out there tonight and REALLY get some pictures of the whole house.....

In the meantime here is the patio :-)
