It’s that time again, time for another home update! As I shared in my last home post, we’re supposed to be closing on October 25th so that means we’re just under 3 months out. As you can see in this exterior photo, all of the siding is on along with the brick. We did a combo of Hardie shake and lap siding and I know it will look completely different when it’s all painted so I’m anxiously awaiting that step!! Everything is really starting to take shape so let’s take a look at what’s been going on the past few weeks.

Seeing all the tile go in was definitely a highlight! In our master shower, we did a combo of 2″ hexagons on the floor and 12×24 tile on the shower walls. In our laundry room, we wanted to mix it up with some patterned tile. Some of the bathrooms don’t have windows so I’ll wait until we have electricity to show you those!
This week they painted most of the interior doors!! Ryan & I decided to go with a simple 2-panel door and had them painted black. We decided to go with black because we like the contrast against white walls and the color we used is BM Twilight Zone.
Well, that wraps it up for now! I think all our major decision making is done which feels SO good! Our exterior lanterns are in and I cannot wait to see how those look on the front of our house. We have ordered our door hardware, most of the lighting (we will keep some rooms empty for now), and had a landscape meeting the other day to go over grass, shrubs, irrigation- all that fun stuff!
I think we are going to do artificial turf in the backyard because of the ease of maintenance. I was also surprised at how realistic some of them look! Have any of you guys used turf in your homes? I know it’s a relatively new thing but I think it will definitely be beneficial in the long run! I think this week will be more painting and I believe countertops go in which will be HUGE!
