Get it Done

Things are coming along nicely here at our little home. Kyle has been checking items off the to do list right and left! He's unstoppable. We have just a few weeks left until our due date for our little man, so the pressure is on to finish up little projects. We are hoping to get most of the items completed so that when he arrives we can just enjoy being a family.

Kyle has been like super man! It has been averaging 95 degrees here in Mid Michigan most days but that hasn't stopped him from being outside.

View from the under side of the house looking up at the gorgeous blue sky. We love the dentil blocks and the decorative brackets up at the peak of the roof line.

Our view from our front porch is pretty amazing. Fresh country air and all the wild flowers in the front yard. Still waiting on the grass to fill in the yard. Its pretty tough to grow grass from seed when its 90+ degrees out and we haven't had rain in weeks but we have a couple little patches.

The decks have been power washed and ready for stain. All the exterior paint on the porches are done. The beams and columns are all a nice crisp white that really stand out from the red color of the house siding.

So happy with how the house is coming together. Its such a great feeling to know that we are making it our own and really making it feel like home.

Items Done on the Outside of the House:
Exterior columns and beams painted
Dentil blocks stained
Mail box installed and post stained
Porch steps installed (finally!)
Power washed the house
Stained the exterior decks
Starting growing grass around the house

Items Done on the Inside of the House:

Hanging some art and photos
Installing window coverings
Decorating the shelves in the living room
Almost finishing the nursery
Installing custom closets in the master bedroom

More Photos of our progress...

Making out master bedroom feel like a retreat with calming colors and a light airy feel.

Finally having art work from Bermuda where we went on our honeymoon almost 3 years ago. These 4 frames are from IKEA and have a prominent place on the wall of our living room. Now we can enjoy them everyday.

I love the pops of color from the paintings and they really take me back to our honeymoon.

Loving our new couch. Its big (can fit 7 adults pretty comfortably) and has a great modern feel. It is made by Palliser called Jura.

Some belly shots in the nursery.

So excited to meet him soon! And I promise to share photos of the completed nursery very soon. Its coming along great but we are waiting on the rocker and I need to hang a few more photos before I share the final product.
