Extreme Home Build

If you are a follower of my blog you may be curious about our home build.  The builder's are working like crazy to get us in the home before my husband's surgery.  We were at the home yesterday to go over the layout for the concrete drive and walkway that is being poured today.  While there I snapped a few photos to share.
 This is a view of the new Quilt Hollow quilting room (less the fixtures and flooring).  I love that this room has the natural light of the day as I hoped for when we made the home plans.

 This is a view of the dining area so far.  The floors will get finished soon.
 We got our first look of the granite.  I love the tropic brown granite against the bisque colored cabinets in the kitchen.
Thanks to my scouring both Pinterest and Houzz for "something different" my builders were able to add in this sweet little cubby in the guest bathroom.  The mirror framing is the same style and oh so dang cute!

I've been "frosting" several quilts and just hadn't taken the time to put together some photos to share with you yet.  There are just a couple more that I must get finished before taking down the longarm for the move.

The POD will be here on Tuesday so that we can start filling it with the things we won't need right away.  Thankfully when we moved to this rental home we left a lot of our things boxed up.

Thank you well wishers.  Your prayers, thoughts and concern for my hubby are truly appreciated....just taking it a day at a time here.

The house is looking wonderful!! What a blessing that the builders were willing to hurry along so you can be there in time. Thinking of you and you family and praying all goes smoothly as you make the new transitions.

Your home is looking beautiful. I don't know how you do it... a business, a home build, a move and a loved one that is ill and probably a lot more that we don't know about.
God bless and keep you and your family.

What a lovely home. The joy of it is probably overshadowed right now as you wait and worry, but I hope it will become a haven for you as you get settled in.
Prayers continue for you both.

I'm loving all the touches in the house. I think we must have the same style sense. The hardware in the kitchen is perfection!

How beautiful...& what a blessing for him to have, what will be, lovely surroundings to recuperate in. It's making lemons into lemonade...it's his opportunity to slow down a moment & look around at what lovely gifts his life has provided him. Home, Health & Happiness.
Your build is exactly what I'd love...so tired of stairs!

Your future home is coming along nicely. I know you're anxious to move in and start creating lots of memories.

Good speed to your husband, Mary.

Polly said...

Ohhhh! The new quilting room looks so lovely and large! I am so jealous! I love the wood trim in the dining room and the kitchen cabinets look wonderful with the granite!! It all is coming along so stunningly!! It will be a wonderful haven for your dear husband to heal after his surgery! God Bless!

Jeanna said...

Your home is coming along nicely. It's beautiful without all the trimmings and when things are settled, I'm sure it will be over the top!

I'm so jealous of everyone that gets a Mary of Quilt Hollow 'frosting' on their quilt. I love seeing all these beauties throughout blogland and look forward to getting my own.

For now, I'm praying for continued strength for you to finish all the frosting on your plate now, your husband's surgery and a smooth move into your new home.

Hugs, my friend!

Beautiful! We'd like to build again, a little smaller this time. Trouble is- we like THIS house! Wish we could just pick it up & move it to the pasture! Keep your chin up but take care of YOU, too! Quilting is great therapy!

Carrie P. said...

WOW! things are really coming along. We are getting ready to do the same wall treatment in our master bedroom as you have done in your dining room.
Will continue to pray for you both. hugs!
