Sneak Peeks - Open House Prep

The finish line is in sight!  With the Open House this weekend, there is a whirlwind of activity around here.  And it occurred to me, it's been two years since we've had an Open House for one of our projects.  It's so much fun to be taking things out of storage - almost like Christmas :-)  I'd really forgotten all the stuff that I have.  The movers moved everything in and now I just have to figure out what to do with it all!!

It looks like one of those TV shows around here, because we're also finishing the electrical, plumbing and carpentry!  Never a dull moment around here.  I've been hoarding the light fixtures in the basement for months - we finally get to see them installed!  LOVE!
And now that the barn doors are hung, they look fantastic.

The first room finished?  The front upstairs bedroom.  This is a totally new room, out of the former attic space.   As a reminder, here's the 'before' space.  We did a lot of structural work to reframe the space and give us a lot of ceiling height.  We also installed new egress windows, to meet new building codes.   Don't you love all the angles and sunshine streaming through the windows and skylight?

We tried to use every cubic inch of space and included lots of lighted closets.   Or as a mom of young children told me - the best hide and seek space ever!  And thanks to the foam insulation we did throughout the second floor, they will be nice and comfortable, winter and summer.

The kitchen is almost finished.  The reclaimed countertops have been installed on the island.  And Brett finished the open shelving this afternoon.

Still lots to do - but we're getting close to the finish line!!!  What do you think?
