Our New House Has It's Front Facade!!!

Things are moving right along with our new build home. 

We made our weekly visit to the job site and we were greeted by our sweet little cottage’s front facade being worked on.

This is one of the things I was so looking forward to seeing done because this is what is giving my home it’s cottagey feel.

We now hove siding, shakes, corbels and board and batten, plus a charming little square vent cover in the front. 
Our porches support column now has its top and bottom finishing touches. 

It is all coming together nicely. Can’t wait to see it when the paint gets applied, that will be the finishing touch.

This is all very exciting to us!

The front window will have black shutters, which is exactly what I would have added if they weren’t already there. 

There just might be a window box in our future, if the HOA allows one. 

We will have to get use to living with the constraints of an HOA, but I remind myself the rules that might bother us are also the rules that protect us from others that might not keep there homes up to the standards of the community.

It  has been even more fun than I anticipated, watching our house being built.

More To Come!!
