Home Stretch

With the carpet installation scheduled TWO DAYS from now, we are truly hitting the home stretch of our house-building experience. I took some pictures for a friend, then figured I'd share them here.

The exterior:

And as a reminder, the final vision:

Walking in the front door:

From the corner of the living room:

Ahem. I see that Mark has made himself quite at home on MY BALL (atop the newel post at the bottom of the stairs). We'll just have to nip that in the bud!

Panning over into the kitchen:

Same view, from the corner of the kitchen:

Looking from the back door to the front of the house:

Yes, we have one of those homes where you can see out the back of the house from the front. I know that bugs some people, but I really like it. The windows, the views, and the natural light are such a key part of our house...they are really a highlight, meant to be accessible from everywhere in the house.

Now upstairs...the loft, which will be our family/play room:

Looking down from the top of the stairs, into the living room:

What do you think...should I schedule the furniture to arrive in THREE WEEKS??!!!


  1. looks fantastic!!! I love the open floor plan! I would get furniture in there'll be an incentive to get other stuff out to make room!!! So happy for you guys!!!
