Progressing

There's been a good bit done this past week. The cabinets were delivered! I was excited when I took this shot.


But, a couple of days later, Woo Hoo! I was beyond excited! Here's a shot of one wall of the kitchen. These are cherry cabinets, stained with the color, "spice." That's an apt name for a kitchen color, don't you think?


This shot is "off" with the color, but it allows you to kinda see the molding on the cabinet tops. I've never had such elaborate cabinets.



The interior painting has been accomplished. It's all "builder's white." After closing, we'll change that. The window sills, baseboards, and interior doors have been installed. Here's a shot of a window sill and the baseboard--just standard.



The outside of the house has been painted, and the garage door has been installed. I had a difficult time getting a picture to show you the exterior color. This is the best one of the lot. The front door, garage door, and window trim will not remain white.








Our closing has been scheduled for December 14th. Ho, ho, ho!

Woo Hoo Sally! I have loved all these updates on your house. The cabinets are a lovely color and the trim so so nice. What color will you paint the outside door and window trim?

December 14 will be here before you know it and you'll be all moved in and settled by Christmas.

bj said...

O, Sally..those cabinets look like fine furniture. So beautiful.
I don't understand why you couldn't have chosen your wall colors and had the painters use it instead of the white?? Tell me how this works, if you have time.
hugs, bj
