So the farmhouse is just on the verrrrry edge of completion. We move in next weekend, so I have been pushing our poor contractor hard to finish up. There are lots of moving parts, and plenty of projects left to do, but his crew works hard and fast, and I know they are working their hardest to get us in an almost finished home! Our hope is that all we lack are a few hanging barn doors by the end of next week, and part of our sanity. My copper farmhouse sink was put in last week and it is going to look so incredible next to the light granite! I can’t wait to see that all come together!
So the biggest part of our renovation, other than all our little details, is this super AMAZING floor we came up with. It is incredibly complicated, and requires a ridiculous amount of tile cutting. Our tile guy has been doing a rockstar job though, and is always positive even though I am confident he HAS to be ready to be done with this thing! It is one of the most unique things we chose in our home, and I am so proud of it!!
Sharon had a nice office with built ins off the kitchen. With my workspace being in the newer add on in the upper portion of the home, and Damon’s headquarters being right down the road, I decided we didn’t have much use for an office. So my three options were: giant walk in pantry, dream laundry room, or…..MASTER CLOSET! For me that was a no – brainer. My clothes and shoes have never fit into one space, so I am looking forward to having a space that is large enough to store it all in one area, and also provides a place to run and escape to ;). It’s a blank space currently, but the built ins will be here next week!
A bunch of the stain in the house was rubbing off, including the stain on the bookshelves, so I decided to make them pop by painting them white. Looking forward to stacking my Canton finds on these soon!
Our doors are one of my pride and joy. Maybe because it was a must have that I thankfully was able to talk Damon into. Or maybe it’s the tedious hours of work we put in staining them, or possibly the fact that I let the control go and allowed my contractor to seal and redo the trim to save me MORE labor. Either way, they are a part of the renovation that I think just crazy updates the home! I couldn’t love them more!
Overall the project has taken longer than expected (shocker I know), but we are very close to the finish line, and really grateful for the opportunity to live our farmhouse dream! If I can focus on not letting my controlling OCD get the best of me, we will be perfectly fine! I expect and pray that in a month we will be finally settled into our comfy, country farm home!
