October 20th

Here it is all finished except for the window we are waiting for. It should be here on Wed. I love the window.
My pretty front door!

I ran to the house early today to snap a picture before the Amigos finish the brick on the front. The sun was bright in the sky, but I think you can make out the progress on the brick. Check out the picture below for the work those guys did on the chimney!
How pretty is the chimney??? I love the way it looks! We are going to ask that the other chimney be bricked like this too. We didn't think that the second chimney could be seen from the street, so we were just going to put siding on it. We realized that we can see the chimney from the street, and we like this one so much, we are going to do it again!

The brick has moved around the end of the house.

We are waiting on the front door and a window that was left off the order. Then the bricking can be completed. The architect designed inverted coins to go on the corners of the house. Some were skeptical since we had never seen this style. I know you cannot see it in this picture, but the are fabulous! Very unique, clean looking and down right cool!

We have brick! The back of the house has been bricked in the Jefferson Tudor from General Shale. I love it! This is a view from the back of the house. I really like the detail around the window and across the wall. We have an address!

Get ready for big changes. The brickers are working around the back of the house. They are so fun to watch because they throw the bricks three at a time to one another! I smoosh my fingers when I move one brick! I have spent a lot of time thinking about and designing cabinets, lighting, and paint colors. It is a little soon for that, but I am interested in the final product. It is hard to think about, but each room is a whole package.
