We have had just under a month in the house now, made it through our housewarming and move-in days relatively unscathed. Construction was supposed to start a week and a half ago, but, no surprise, it hasn't. We have painted most of the main floor but avoided the bathroom as we know it will be on the remodel list.
The living room was supposed to be a light gray color with some brown tones to it, but it turned out a little more blue than expected. We painted the beams the same slate gray we painted the kitchen, which ties the room together well, but leaves the dark brown carpeting looking misplaced.
The house seems so bare and empty right how, nothing personal unpacked yet. It is odd to see, but not unexpected. In a few months we will have a home again, not just the shell of a house.
Our new refrigerator is amazing - clean and sanitary. Painting the beams in the kitchen a creamy white and the walls slate gray made a huge difference to the kitchen - it accentuated the architecture and added some good contrast to the cabinets and ceiling.
Our pantry is still a bit of a disaster zone - lot of pots in boxes and miscellaneous cooking implements to sort through. At least we can find food now and start to do some cooking and not just live on takeout.
Chris made sure to unpack the part of the house that he viewed most important as quickly as possible. Though, given how much we have ahead of us in this place, I am not sure I disagree about its importance.
My favorite room in the house, even though it is dreadfully boring right now. I love the ceiling and the floors in here and how the slanted walls add some fun to the shape of the room.
