House Update - Framing & Lights

It looks like while we were gone for the Holidays the house was getting busy and the cement must have been poured.  Thank goodness the weather got a little warmer for us! They also started the basement framing and it's starting to look like a house. It may only have changed a little since we last saw it but this is good progress to build on that shouldn't' be affected by the weather too much.  With another warmer week ahead and little snow we're hoping for even more work to get done.

We also finalized a couple of things for the house.  The major one for me was lighting since I was having so many issues picking the lights.  Unfortunately I just couldn't find a good matching choice for my favorite pendants so away we went with those and went with something a little easier for the island.  We also chose our dining table light and the pendant over the sink.  Our final pick still standing was the entryway chandelier which might be my new favorite.  We're making some progress guys and it's getting more exciting!
