Not too much to report except that we are starting to gain ground! Jeff has been reminding me how quickly this little house will go up once framing starts so I guess I better hold onto my houses, errr, horses!

This week I also paid my junkyard friend $150 for the claw foot tub and met with Christina at Showcase Kitchens to finalize kitchen layout. I’ll post about the kitchen in next week’s update.

I also woke up in the middle of the night TERRIFIED that the house had burnt to the ground!!! I have hear that this is a common dream and finally finalized my insurance with Jeff Brady at Allstate. Whew! Sleeping better now!

Floor samples, cast iron tubs, and back hoes, Oh My!

photo 3Started pushing dirt this week–well, I didn’t but the guys did! Lot is looking good! Excited to see activity!

Started playing around with cabinet and floor colors. Found a claw foot tub that needs to be refinished.  Also fell in love with 6” Hickory hand-scraped flooring.

A girl can dream, right?
