Friends, we FINALLY have something more to show you than just a pile of dirt – yay! Framing has started on the house we are building, and we couldn’t be more excited. As of right now, the first floor is framed and we are still waiting on the second floor. It was so much fun to walk through the house and imagine where everything would go! And also such a strange feeling to imagine actually living there when it’s just concrete and pieces of wood right now.
Nonetheless, we are so pumped and ready for our home. We started this process about this time last year, but things ended up moving much slower than we expected. In some ways, I’m just enjoying being at our current home (I’ll always love Edna The House!), our sweet neighborhood with older homes and established trees, the home our boys were born in. I’m going to be an emotional mess whenever it comes time to move! But at the same time I am so excited for this new season for our family.
In the meantime, I also want to share some of our selections with you guys!
Our Latest Selections
Since putting together this Kitchen Inspiration and sharing it with you guys, so many things have changed. We’ve made all of our selections for our wood floors, tile, carpet (for the boy’s bedrooms upstairs), and lighting. Countertops and appliances are still up in the air, so those selections will come later. For now, here’s a bit of our latest with our selections!
Even though our house isn’t necessarily Spanish style, I’ve recently been obsessed with that look and feel lately and wanted to incorporate some of it into our home. We selected terra cotta tile for the mud room, laundry room, and the guest bathroom. We are also planning for a terra cotta look in our master shower and an arched double door for the main entrance – more to come on that!
Also, if you’ve been following along our house building journey, I just want to say thank you. While I mostly post about food in this space, I love sharing life with you guys and it truly feels like you all are my friends and community. I always love chatting with you guys and getting to know you, so if you’re up for it, shoot me a message, comment, or DM on Instagram!
P.S: It would have been awesome if I could have remembered my “real” camera for any of these things…but no…iPhone photos it is. Next time! 🙂
