The progress has slowed a little these past couple of weeks (electrical is SLOW, folks!)…but we are still managing to crank out as much as possible each day.
The garage painting is coming along. Not near as fast as I would like, but moving along. It has taken many trips to Sherwin Williams and lots of sampling on the garage walls (to try each color in different light, obviously) to finally narrow it down.
We I chose Foothills as the actual color for the garage. You can see in the below pic that it was a tough choice between Smokehouse (the lower panel) and Foothills (the upper panel). I believe Trent’s exact words were, “there’s a difference?” I mean really…it’s like the difference between red and blue (yes, I’m being sarcastic).
The electrical is also going quite well. *I’ve learned that electrical is one of those tasks that goes flawlessly…until one moment it doesn’t. Thankfully, it’s smooth sailing for now!* We have lots more of these blue light switch boxes throughout the house.
While this home is not the largest we have ever had, it will (without a doubt) have the most lights. We have learned that when it comes to lighting, more actually IS better! There will be lots of different types: chandeliers, sconces, pendants, you name it. As of right now, I have only selected the recessed lights (because there isn’t really anything to choose – it’s sort of a one size fits all)…so we have lots of recessed lights ready to go.
I’m looking for the perfect chandelier for the staircase. It needs to be big and somewhat fancy…but not too over-the-top. Have you seen something perfect? Have you seen something perfect that won’t cost more than a car? If so, please comment or leave the link in the comment section.
It’s about now that we start to feel like everything is moving SO SLOW! But every evening we come home to this face and we promise him that his palace will be ready soon (that’s actually not sarcastic, but totally the truth)! Enjoy your week!
