New House Choices all picked out Today!

Today I took off from work. John and I had an appointment with the Design Center to make all the choices for our new house! We were so excited! The appt. was for 12:30 and was suppose to take 2-2.5 hrs. Well we got there at 12:30 and we left the design center 5:30!!! Everything has been picked out!!! We are so happy with all our choices. There was only 1 light fixture that I know will be changed out after we move in. I thought that was pretty awesome due to all the choices we had to make!

Here is the elevation we picked out:

I have to apologize for the picture, that was the best I could do tonight. I'll explain what is on there. The bottom half of the house will be Buck's County Stacked Stone, the horizontal lines are hardi-plank siding and the peaks will be hardi-plank shakes. We love the Craftsman style of this elevation. We are really happy we will have a full front porch too. The garage doors won't be in the front either-we will have a side-load garage. So where the garage doors are on the photo there will be 2 windows instead.

We picked a color for the hardi-plank siding (Duron Quiver Tan). It is a gray like tan. Where the shakes are it will be a few shades darker with white trim. Shutters are another color gray too. I love all the colors.

We picked so many things out carpet, kitchen cabinets, granite, cabinet knobs, faucets, stove, trim, lighting, etc., etc.! I loved every minute of it!! I love looking at all the choices and seeing what is out there.

Megan came to the design center with John and I. With her interior design degree and things we like we all agreed on all the choices made! It was tiring but enjoyable.

Now I can't wait to see everything put in place! Thank you all for indulging me in my excitement about the new house!!

How exciting! I bet you guys had a ball picking out everything. I love the look of your home..the stone, siding and shakes are perfect! Do you have a floor plan you can show us?

Sooooooooo excited for you! That was a lot of stuff to pick out in one day! Whew! I use to give my homeowner's 4 months to do all of that!

Good job on picking the right color. That neutral color choice would certainly make a good background for brighter colored elements – the orange and yellows of sunflowers would appear even brighter because of that. I can't wait for you to turn this vision into reality, Sherri. When is it going to start?

Sherri, how's the construction of the house so far? The blueprint seems to have perfect measures. Brendan is right, but not just bright colors, neutral colors coordinate well with any colors.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
