I Can Has Houz?

Filed under: house — Kathy @ 11:13 am

Today the new house was buzzing with workers. Some walking on the roof like insects putting black tar paper on. Some inside and outside putting in the windows. All those windows will be in by the end of the week, and they are looking fantastic. I took my mom on a little tour of the house today and I think she could tell how excited I was by it. I’m loving the floor plan so much; it feels just right. I’m thinking about the killer parties I can hostess in the summer with that deck and the great Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings I can have with all that room and those warm fireplaces. You are all invited!

The doors haven’t come yet, but those oval windows are sweet.

Breakfast room with those cute diamond pane windows.

Dining room bowed windows from the outside.

A view from the street after the roofing guys finished with that black stuff.

My construction company, B and J Custom Building, is doing an awesome job. My designer, Michelle Dunker of Medici Co., and her assistant Pam, totally saved me on this project when they came on board back in February when we were still working on the floor plan. I love them both so much. To see some of Michelle’s work, look here at the photos. She does both the interior and the exterior designs. I cannot say enough good things about these people and can recommend both companies wholeheartedly.
