It’s starting to look like a real house now!

The kiddo and I sneaked over to the house today to have a look at the progress. We were not disappointed. It’s really starting to look and feel like a house now! I can actually visualize where furniture and decor will go.

I’m thrilled with the way my exterior selections turned out! 😍
It’s all covered up for painting, but my fireplace mantle and surround are done.
This is the ceramic tile I chose for the fireplace. It sort of has a marble look.
Spindles and rail. My dad will be so disappointed they didn’t leave the 2×4 version up. 😂 (inside joke, he kept commenting on how nice that 2×4 rail was when he was here)
“Pulte Planning Center” – this is a desk area beside the kitchen. I’ll use it for my printer and meal planning stuff. The other side will be Ethan’s homeschooling desk.

And now for my favorite part of the house…I upgraded to include the “kitchen convenience package” which adds pull out shelves in the lower cabinets, a pull out trash cabinet, and some other little things.

It’s so pretty 😍
Who gets this excited over trash cans???

Master bath double sinks.

My construction manager emailed on Friday and said they are installing the downstairs flooring on Monday and the carpet soon thereafter. Then finishes in the house like lights, outlets, plumbing fixtures, doorknobs, etc.

The pace is picking up now! I’ve even started thinking about paint colors!
