At Long Last, an Update!

Did you think the house building had come to a halt? I know, I know, it’s been far too long since my last post. And it’s quite ridiculous as well considering all that has been done since my last post!

Here is what you saw…


And here is what the exterior looks like now…

The siding went up. This took forever! Like three weeks which seemed like a long, long time.

 But it was finally finished and in just a few days, it was painted…

And my favorite part of the exterior? My “haint blue” porch ceiling! If you aren’t familiar, historically they painted the porch ceilings in the lowcountry blue to keep away insects and ghosts.

So that is where we are with the exterior. So let me show you a few of the interior. Since I haven’t shown you any photos of the inside yet, I’ve created collages of the progression since framing.

The front entry and staircase (view from family room)…

The back wall of the kitchen….


Other photos of the kitchen (P.S. I LOVE my kitchen cabinets!)…

And finally, our master bath shower. The cabinets are in as well, but I don’t have a photo yet…

So that is about where we are today. They have primed all the walls for painting and I’m hoping that will be done this week. We are getting close and I’m getting very anxious. We are being told three weeks until move in. My fingers are crossed, but I’m still a bit skeptical.

Everything looks amazing so far! I can’t wait to see it finished!
