Last week, George and I were able to go to Peoria and work on some house stuff. We got a TON done, and I'm feeling much more at ease with the decisions we've made.
We met with an electrician and home audio guy. At this appointment, we walked through the entire house picking where we wanted our cable jacks, outlets, light switches, home audio stuff, etc. It was a super chilly morning, so I started saying, "I don't care" more and more. My toes were freezing! During these walkthroughs, I was able to snap some updated pictures of the house.
This is our great room, sun room off of the kitchen, and you can see a small part of the kitchen on the far left.
This is the "sun room" in the basement. I'm hoping that this will be a workout room with a treadmill, bike, and weights.
Here is the downstairs living room that connects to the basement bar/kitchen. My favorite part is the fireplace downstairs. I can't wait to have gas fireplaces! They make everything so cozy.
This is probably one of my favorite parts about this house... the closet. I know that I wont have the space for an island, but I'm hoping to do a peninsula eventually.
I can't believe that I didn't take a picture of the kitchen granite! So here is a picture of "Juperana Persa," that looks really similar to ours.
The basement has darker grey walls and everything is a little more industrial and modern. This granite is is my absolute favorite. If you look at it up close, there are a ton of clear and silver flecks.
For the master bath, we're doing honed marble. At first, I was a little worried about marble being a little softer and more porous. This "Imperial Danby" marble is one of the harder kinds, so it should be fine, especially in a master bathroom. I love the streaks of black and brown. It will match our shower and tub tile perfectly.
Next, we picked out plumbing fixtures and lighting. I was super bad about taking pictures, so I only have a few.
This is the light fixture that we will have in our entry. The dining and breakfast nook will be similar, but not the same. I also chose this faucet for the kitchen in stainless steel. It will go really well with our farmhouse sink.
That's all I have for the house updates! We're going back in December, so I can't wait to see how far they've come then.
What do you think so far?
