Projects of Penrose: Building our House

Here she is!  We chose a plan that is just over 2900 sqft, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom with bonus room on a cul-de-sac lot.  We are so in love with the plan! It is just so spacious and has so much storage, which was one of the biggest complaints we had in our last home [there wasn't even a linen closet!].  I also now have an eat-in kitchen, mudroom, and a full laundry room with folding table! Cannnnnn I get an Amen :)  If you ever visited our first house, you know about the sad little corner fireplace that the previous owners installed...well now we will have a real fireplace! I am so excited, especially because they are telling us that we will close around mid-October so we will be able to celebrate this Christmas in the new house!

To update you on the timeline so far...we listed AND sold our house on April 1st! Crazy day. We signed the contract for this lot a couple days before that, and then made all of our upgrade & finish selections on May 18th.  We had our pre-construction meeting on June 24th and in the last week they have cranked out framing of the 1st floor and almost all of the 2nd floor.  I love being close by to check on the progress! 

For the exterior finishes, it will be two-toned siding...The horizontal siding is a lighter tan and the accent vertical siding on the 2nd floor (where the bonus room is) will be taupe.  The trim and garage door are ivory.  The brick accent on the columns is a dark red/charcoal mix, which I think will look great against the charcoal gray door & shutters!
