I haven't posted any updates on the house building lately because there wasn't too much interesting until end of last week. Everything was going pretty quickly, and of course there is one thing we are waiting on to move forward. Apparently there is a soil test the health department needed to have so we could finish covering over the septic system. Well the state did the wrong test and then the one person who knows how to read it was out sick, so we are waiting on that which means the driveway can't go in, and that means the flooring can't go in. We're getting so close but so far away! Here's a pic of the finished brick studio wall, last time I posted it was half done. The color scheme is gray/sage/slate blue and we really wanted the tile work and lighting fixtures to be conversation pieces. There's been a lot done in the kitchen and I love how it's coming together. The backsplash is a glass tile mosaic and the counter tops are grey and a white silestone. I wanted an old house and my husband wanted the convenience of a new house, so our compromise was he got the new house and I get to make it look old:-) I chose glass pulls for all the cabinets and the furniture is going all be a painted shabby chic look. There are lots of Kohler boxes there too with all the faucets and fixtures. I especially love the kitchen one, it's one of those where you can pull it out and use it as a sprayer too. The breakfast nook chandalier is a huge globe made of driftwood, it's actually much bigger than I though it would be, I'm a horrible judge of size without seeing things in person! The pendants in the kitchen are capiz shell, also bigger than I thought but it's bringing the coastal/modern together!
