So, very slowly things are getting done to the house. We are supposed to close in 25 days – which means the house has to be completed in about 18 days. Having a hard time seeing that happening at this point, but they could totally surprise me.
In other news… Our granite was installed the other day. I am always so totally unprepared when it comes to photos of this house. I promise one day I’ll take my good camera with me and take better ones.
This is the kitchen from the great room. On the far left wall, we will have double ovens and a microwave installed. On the back wall, the fridge and gas cooktop will be installed. On the sink side, the dishwasher will be just to the right of the sink from this view.
I’ll be quite honest, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the granite when I walked into the house. It was very different from the sample that we were shown at the design center. This granite reads much more taupe/goldy than I was expecting. There are also large areas of black strewn throughout. I spent some more time over there yesterday inspecting the granite and just taking a step back to look at them. RJ was a little thrown to begin with as well. Since we both expected a more creamy looking background to the granite. However, the countertops complement our cabinets nicely. So, in the end, I think they’ll be good. My only regret is the size of the crown moulding on the cabinets. We should have sprung for the larger crown so it would look more substantial. Overall, we are very pleased.
We have a very neutral palette throughout the house. This was intentional so that the look would remain classic and never outdated. Some of the appliances were installed yesterday, however, I wanted to wait for the rest (minus the fridge and already installed range hood) to be installed before sharing those photos.
Hopefully, they’ll correct the office doors this week – the correct doors were delivered yesterday. From what it appears, they will be moving the current office doors to replace the too tall cut master bedroom doors. Fingers crossed!
