I know it has been a WHILE since I posted last…
Things got crazy and started moving FAST toward the end of the build!
Well. The house is completed and we have moved out of our temporary living quarters (the apartment, loaded with college students) and are now living quietly…in our new Ranch Bungalow
We are now moving forward with the overwhelming, yet FUN task of furnishing our new home.
We don’t have any furniture! Well, sparse furnishings is a better description.
I now think I know how the Clampett’s felt…when they moved into the mansion.
Time to get BUSY.
Believe it or not…the exterior of the house is being painted as I type!
I saw it with my own two eyeballs.
I know. I can’t believe it either!
Photos are coming soon (REALLY)
Oh. And, we are really, hopefully, possibly, potentially, moving in by middle of next week (There. I said it)
Yes. This IS our kitchen pantry. It has red, wrought iron handles AND chicken wire screen 🙂
A reminder of what the grass looks like in the Summer! Can’t wait to see all of this GREEN again!
Master bedroom chandelier
Just varnished wood floors!

***This photo turned out a little dark
Okay. Here are several TOTALLY RANDOM snapshots we took this weekend.
As you will see, there is more work to be done. These photos are in the RAW. We came. We saw. We snapped photos!
Rumor has it…we should be in the house within the first two weeks of March!
The porch “cedar columns” and railings are scheduled to be installed by end of this week or beginning of next week.
The entire “exterior” of the house should be painted…soon.
The Office. Yes. If you know me (Suzy) you KNEW it had to be Yellow 🙂
Sun Room (AKA: Breakfast Nook)
Kitchen/breakfast nook and hallway view
Looking into living area, from kitchen. To the left is the dining room.
More tile to be added to the fireplace surround, by Wednesday.
The guys working on our beautiful, winding driveway.
Another view of kitchen and our HUGE pantry. It will have rabbit wire, instead of glass…on the doors 🙂
The kitchen tile going up! This lovely blue mosaic tile, will go along the wall, connecting to the granite and topped with an awesome travertine.
Kitchen, breakfast nook and hallway
The guest bathroom in the making!

Looking into the living area from the dining room
Front door view. Standing in the living area. Kitchen is to my left. You can see the dining area on the right.
Front door view. The “yellow” office is just to the right, in this photo. When you enter the house, the yellow office is directly to your left.
We just entered the house. We passed the office. Now we are looking left…and we see the dining room.
The bottom photo: to the right of the dining room, you can see the living room.
We have these “bungalow” lights, all around the exterior of the house.
Yes. The walls have been completely painted! Photos are coming SOON.
The Granite…has been installed in the kitchen and will soon be put down in both bathrooms.
Yes…photos are coming SOON 🙂
So much getting ready to happen at the house, all at once!
The painter has advised us he anticipates being FINISHED by this coming Friday! (That’s Jan 25th to you and me)
So…we will be posting photos of our completely painted bungalow no later than this weekend 🙂

(thank you honey)!!
No. It’s NOT snow!
All the wood has been sprayed with a primer coat and boy oh boy does it STINK!
However, by the time this photo has been posted, I am ABSOLUTELY, almost….CERTAIN the painters have begun adding a few of those colors you can see to the left… and toward the back 🙂
Yes. This will be a very COLORFUL bungalow!
Wouldn’t have it any other way.
Now, here is a question for those of you who know me (Suzy)
Will the office be painted white, purple, turquoise, or YELLOW ?
How can I say this ?
The PAINTING HAS BEGUN!!!!!
If you have ever been inside a new build while the painting is happening…you KNOW what I mean, when I say: IT’S JUST WRONG TO BE ANYWHERE WITHIN SNIFFING DISTANCE OF THAT HOUSE!
So, I do NOT attempt photos.
Those photos will be posted this weekend 🙂
Ps…we need a respirator for Eddie AND his camera.
Hello there once again!
The porches have been poured! They are lovely!
We will be going out to the house this evening and will snap a photo or two.
What’s happening on the inside ?
Masking and taping of LOTS of wood.
Stain will go on first, then dry time, then PAINT.
This concludes our update.
You may now go back to your regularly scheduled day.
It has been a while since our last update!
Reason being: LOTS of work going on!
The trim carpenters are heading toward the finish line and have been working up till midnight, recently.
They plan on being DONE by the end of Sunday.
Then…the painters can begin (SWEET).
Today: possibly framing of the porches and then….the pouring of the concrete.
Will update with photos….by end of Sunday OR Monday.
