And the first thing we did was pick up this fella from Adam's parents' house.
|Farm dog for a week.|
We went out to the house first because it was killing us. We usually stop out there every evening to see the progress. So we were anxious to see a weeks worth.
We have siding folks! In this post we were having a hard time deciding which siding to choose.
We went with the weathered ash.
I was so nervous to see what it would actually look like on the house. We didn't want it to be too grey. We didn't want it to be too tan. We wanted a little brown peeking out, just like in the sample.
|But it's perfect.|
|I think it works well with the brown trim.|
They also worked on the front porch and the back deck.
|Ceiling of front porch.|
|Back deck has same ceiling. |
There will be a ceiling fan installed and the lights will be on a dimmer.
|Diagonal look for the wood...now to pick out a stain finish! |
And railings and steps. We need those too.
|hmmm who secretly added that TV jack into the back deck plans? Hint: Adam|
Anyways, now we have to pull the trigger on the stone. We think we have some picked out, but we just have to give the final okay. The exterior stone and the fireplace stone is going to be one of our huge DIY projects, with the help of my dad.
Stay tuned, lots more updates coming!
Do you think we made the choice on the siding?
What do you think about a TV on the back deck?
