Some Pictures Finally

I've finally gotten around to getting pics up of the house on here.  Needless to say things have been very busy for the past couple of weeks!  We are completely moved in and most of the boxes have been emptied.  These pics are at various stages of the move, so please excuse the mess in some of them!


 Dining Room (currently kid's playroom)

 Family Room

 Morning Room

 Mud Room/Laundry Area

 Mud Room/Welcome Center (no hooks yet)

Kitchen (with our new countertops!)

Kids Bathroom

Kid's Bedroom

Kid's Bedroom

Before we moved in we were able to paint the Family Room, Morning Room, Kitchen, Mud Room and both of our girl's bedrooms.  Since these were brand new walls the paint was a bit difficult to put on and definitely needed two coats.  Overall we are happy with the results and we'll paint other rooms when we have the time.

Our issues so far have been pretty minor.  Our dishwasher had no power (fixed), we've had a couple windows break (not fixed yet), and a heavy downpour last weekend caused parts of our lawn to sink.  We also found some bubbling on our ceiling in the kitchen, which we think was caused by the rain leaking in through the siding.  Our PM still isn't sure if that was the cause of it but he had someone go up and re-caulk some spots where the roof of the garage meets the house.  As for the counter tops, we finally got them installed yesterday!  We do have an issue with the top that is on the half wall, however (it is the one being held down by the wood in the pic).  The guy who installed it cut the notch for the wall crooked, and it ended up affecting the position of the top all the way through.  Here's what it looks like at the edge:

All of the other tops were installed well so I'm not mad about it but I do want it re-done.  I've contacted our PM about it but haven't gotten a response yet.

We also have some floor creak issues and a few nail pops which we'll address at our 30 day meeting.  Let's hope there aren't too many more issues that pop up until then!


  1. Love love love that mud room, I showed everyone in our neighborhood the plan layout and we are all so jealous of it!!!! BUT we are happy to see that RH is making improvements on their designs.

  2. Hi! We love the mudroom as well! We built a Savoy L (Garage is in front of the dining room) 11 years ago in Ohio and it looks like they have made some greta improvements to the floor plan :-) May I ask what the dimensions of the walk in pantry are? We are going to turn our dining room into a mudroom/walk in pantry and would love to know how big yours is. Thanks!

    1. I don't remember the dimensions off hand but I think it's 8'x8'. Thanks for looking!
