Sorry I've been bloggin' MIA. I've had sales dudes in the office for
the past week and a half and they keep me busy. Too busy for
So I thought I'd update you with what's going on with the house. We
are moving to the OUTSIDE of updating our home! (HA! I'm just
humoring myself when I say "we", I mean that I chose the color scheme
and picked all the stuff out and Darin's doing the grunt work. Hey, I
feed him well and give him a ton of affirmation when he comes inside
cuz he's a miracle worker. Seems to be good enough for him!)
So, this is the outside of our home.
Needs some help, eh? Not a very good picture because I cut off the
left part of the house. There is a corner full of windows on the left
corner of the house.. where our master bedroom is. Darin's goal is to
have all our new windows installed before Baby H gets here. Friday we
hit 30 weeks so he's starting to get a little stressed... but we all
know Darin is superman and in fact, the windows will get put in.
Here's what Darin did yesterday...
He put in one of our new windows and the side door! Look how happy he
is.. the boy loves this stuff. This is one of the windows that Darin
took out of a nearby house on a lake that they were leveling to the
ground. Only problem is that it's white.. I will be painting it
sandstone to match the rest of our new windows after Baby H is here.
I hope Baby H likes remodeling.. I have a lot of plans this summer!
And the siding color we choose...
Sage. I love it. We had to work with the stone in the front and we
either had the choice of going with this green sage color or a tan
color that completely blended in with the stone. After getting the
opinion from some peeps, we choose the green. All our accents, garage
door and window trim will be in a sandstone color to match the stone.
We will then paint the doors burgundy.
Which leads me to the next picture..
Our new front door. I love it. Too much. And get this.. it was on
clearance. It was meant to be.
And then there will be a new roof this summer. And some landscaping..
if we have time. And the stone will be powerwashed to bring it back to
So, what do you think?
