August house shots

The house is really coming along. When we were there this past weekend, the tilers were putting down the tiles and many of the walls had been painted. My window seat in the kitchen/eating area is finished (and oh, so pretty).
This second pic is of our great room. We had the tiles laid on the 45% as I think it makes the house look less "boxy". We have that in this house and love it...these are the french doors leading out to the lanai and caged pool.
It was great to see the pool tiled too as we had no idea what tiles we had ordered. Come to think of it, we couldn't remember what colors of anything we had picked out as it was so long ago and we only had 3 hours to do it all. I don't want to do a house like this one again. Our first building company for this house was a small, family owned one and we were treated like royalty. We moved windows, custom paint jobs in several rooms etc. at no or a very low fee. We wanted to eliminate this window to the left of the French doors and were told it was impossible with this company.

And this next picture is E's kitchen...he is going to be such a happy fellow.

And even more good news on our house. Today, someone was driving by the house, several times. E finally went outside and invited the guy in. He is looking for a house for his parents and told E he is very interested in ours! Keep those prospective buyers coming.... Posted by Picasa

Miss J,
Your house is moving right along, although I'm sure you wish it was moving faster! Where is the new house, a lot or subdivision? Bob and I are on the lookout for a place as we'd like to move. It's just hard to find that special place!
