The Post I Have Been Anxiously
 Awaiting To Write!

I know I just did a New House Update post, but folks things are really starting to move fast and it is a good thing since we are suppose to get the keys in less than a month.

One of the changes I could hardly wait to see was the paint on the outside. Earlier in the week we saw them prepping for the trim color and then they painted the trim….

P1150620 (800x600)This was exciting to me because I knew that the whole house would be painted very soon. I figured probably by Monday. 

Well I was wrong, we went last night to see the progress and there she was in all her glory. Painted, house number and lantern. DONE!!!

I don’t think I could have smiled any bigger when turned the corner and saw it.

First I got excited for the neighbor on the corner who had paint, I don’t even know any of these people but I have watched all the other homes being built and just know the excitement they all must be feeling is just like what I am feeling.

Then we saw it PAINT!!!

The color changes according to the lighting. It was getting a bit darker and last night it looked more blue. It changes from gray to blue/gray, to a blue/green/gray color. It is a Sherwin Williams color called Tilting.

Here is the color board for the whole house scheme.

Isn’t she pretty? Yes, it is a she!! I have a tendency to think my houses have a gender and a personality. This one is definitely a darling little SHE!!

You can see in this lighting it looks more gray/blue.

My hubby checking out the paint, he thinks it needs another coat on this side. He is somewhat of a perfectionist.

This is in the evening and the sun is going down and now it looks more gray. See how lighting changes everything when it comes to color.

This is our covered patio at the side of our home, it has a door that leads out from the great room.

P1150631 (800x600)
Here is the door looking into the great room.

Next should be the driveway and walkway, I think? She will be getting her black shutters, and black door soon. The garage door will be getting some black iron hardware applied to make it look like a carriage door. Then she will be all dressed waiting for her plants!! Pretty exciting, huh?

There is the happy, proud owner aka: My hubby!!

Until next time! I will be…

……“Enjoy the Process!” of:

Every single, big and little step to
the completion date!!

It's so cute! I love the color. The black hardware is going to pop. Do you have a light fixture selected for the entrance alcove?
What am I seeing on the roof? Are those solar panels?
