Yours truly, the Queen of Sidetracked-ness, has reached unprecedented heights of distraction.
We’re having a new house built, and I’m pretty dang excited about it.
Not that we’re moving very far—only about four miles, in fact—but we needed a different configuration of rooms, and a quicker commute for Brent. The new place has easy access to the highway, in contrast with our current plight of having to trundle down narrow two-lane roads, often stuck behind poky vehicles like gravel haulers or Cadillacs.
Anyway, I’ve had the fun-but-dizzying job of selecting everything from paint colors and flooring to faucets and light fixtures, plus hardware right down to the drawer pulls. Seeing the interior come together has me in extreme states of everything from bliss (“I knew that chandelier would be perfect!”) to despair (“How did I fail to see that on the plan? We’ll have to move it!”)
Our wonderful builder, however, is going all out to make our dream home perfect.
I’m not at liberty to give you a full tour, since I’m holding out for my sweet mother-in-love to see everything in person. But I can’t resist showing a few “teaser” pictures.
As you can see, everything is coming together. Over the next few weeks we will move furniture and get set up in the new place. Friends are always welcome.
Thanks for reading!
