House Update - Primed and Ready for Fun

Jeff and I stopped over at the house this last weekend and I was surprised to see what a big difference it makes when the walls are primed.  It was so bright and open and it's just begging to get finished up.  The siding was also almost up.  The front is the last thing to go up with some trim around the windows.  The final step will be some stone and then I can start imagining where all the landscaping will go.

Next up this week they will be delivering our cabinetry for the house and installing all the trim you see in the picture above.  We haven't yet gotten an updated e-mail with what else they'll be working on but it's getting that much closer to all the fun stuff.  Today we have a walk-through with the closet guy to settle on the pantry and closets in the house. That same guy also will have us choose mirrors and towel bars, toilet paper holders, etc.
