The beginnings of our brand new home. They began excavation on Tuesday and when we drove by today it looked like they were getting ready to set up some of the basement forms. How cool is that?
We had to go pick out kitchen cabinets today and counter tops. Talk about choices. I have it narrowed down to 2 different cabinet choices and, I think, 2 different counter top choices. What started as flat panels, raised panels, oak(not so much), maple(nice), hickory(I wish), ...then natural, fawn, autumn, june, september, and whatever other color of stain that you can think of....with newly added things like cocoa glazes and pencil trims...I can say that when we left the cabinet place I had it narrowed down to 2. One of which, is my first choice, and it happens to be a custom made cabinet. By the Amish. As she tells me this I say in my head, right, like I could ever afford that. Of course that would be my first choice. Heaven forbid my first choice be something that is actually in my allowance. No, no, I like to make things difficult. So, we sit back and wait for all the numbers to come rolling in. Then sit back and begin the apples and oranges debate.
Here is the siding color. It is actually a warm sage green. The color is really different in this picture. So, I need to choose a shutter color. Should it be black, brick red, sienna brown, or burgundy? Tell it like it is. What's your choice?
