HOME Stretch

From the sticks in the late spring to adding sheetrock, color, tile and all of those other fun features that make a house a home – it is amazing how quickly some of this happens.

I had been on pins and needles waiting for the interior paint to be applied, I was so afraid it would be drab – and I had also stepped way outside the box and chosen a dark chocolate for the doors and trim and I so wanted to see if I was going to like it – well I LOVE IT!  We have chosen the same tile through-out the home on the floors.  No carpet or wood, our new home is in a sand pit!  Can’t wait to start landscaping!

I love the rock columns with the cedar posts and ceiling - I think we will spend a lot of time on this back porch
