This is the LAST post, fans!!!

I am very happy to say this is my last post. Tomorrow is move-in day!!! We are thrilled with how the house looks.

The tile in the kitchen and bathrooms is beautiful! The trim work and the other painting is wonderful!

One thing I would like to mention before signing off...our paperwork noted that it is approximately 100 days to complete a house for Crownline Homes. From the date we broke ground to today is EXACTLY 100 days.

We appreciate Scott and all the subs for a wonderful job! It is now time to sign off for the last time and get to living in our beautiful new home!

We'll be done soon!!!

The first pic makes it look like the home of Vlad the Impaler. I can assure you he has been banished to the basement. ;)

The railing has been done and the staining is in progress. Crown moulding is done above the kitchen cabinets...appliances are all in (except my fridge).

Carpeting has started in the basement AND, we have running water. I can't believe by this time next week, I will have made my last post on this project.

We would do it all over again and have thoroughly enjoyed working with Scott (our builder). If we could have done it while living in a mansion that someone else is paying for, that would have been nice. :)

Getting closer!!

Lots of the small things are happening making things look more finished. The moulding in the shower is up, the faucets have started to be installed, and the kitchen cabinet knobs and trim have been put on.

We have finished painting bedroom #2, so we're doing okay. Last picture is my ceiling paint job from last night. UGH! I still have to patch that up.

Red Room! Red Room!

I'm a BIG fan of "The Shining" and I couldn't help myself. We have been told that carpet is going in on Tuesday. Time to kick it into ludicrous speed!

Tonight, I touched up the "red/pumpkinish" room. It took a few hours because I didn't have any painters' tape. UGH! I'm not as fast as I used to be and I hit the ceiling! Didn't take the camera tonight, but I will get picks to post as I paint. (say that three times fast)

I'll post more pictures Sunday night. I have a feeling I'll be a little too busy to get anything else done until then.

Doors & trim are being painted!!

Things are really coming together now. The doors and trim are being painted. We will come back through and retrim the walls with the wall paint and painting is done-done! Clear as mud?

Here is the front door. I hope you approve, Margie and Kathy! I do love this color.

Please note the trim work "Smitty" is doing under the windows. He is remarkable!!!

Prepping for trim paint

Today was another very exciting day. We have kitchen countertops! Those are EARLY!!! So...since we are ahead of the game, we found out tonight that the basement carpet has been discontinued...2 months ago! UGH!

We have crown moulding on the tray ceilings in the master bedroom. We also have it on the built-in entertainment center.

The trim and door painters are prepping the floors and windows for paint.

Yesterday was all about crown moulding

More of the finishing touches are going up and the results are beautiful! I have to say that I love the work of the trim carpenter. We can't wait for all of this to be finished and painted.

This has probably been the slowest of the processes, but he is doing an amazing job!!! We are very glad he is taking his time to do it right.
