Late May Update...Let us know what you think :)

Here are several new pictures of the house. Update is...we are really close to having the painting done as you will see in several pictures. The landscaping is being worked on. They are building retaining walls in the front. The pool pump was put in this week. The electrician was supposed to be there on Thursday to start work on putting the lights in and other electrical finishes. The tile guy has been working for two days and has the step into the tub built and the shower floor and bench finished. The tile should be in on Monday. Things are really coming together. We can't wait to see it all finished.The Above Picture is the front of the house at this time. You can see a little of the retaining walls being built on the front left.

The above picture is a close-up of the retaining walls. They are covered in the same flagstone the column bases and fireplace hearths are capped in.

The above picture shows one of the back porches with the cedar columns set.
The above pictures are of the Great Room. One is it being painted and the other is the finished product.

Here are three pics of the kitchen with the Granite set in.

The below picture is taken from the breakfast/bar area off the kitchen looking towards the front door. The columns are cedar.

This picture is of the Powder Bath. The blue didn't photograph well it's not a bright/baby's more a aqua/Mediterranean/deep blue.

These last two are of the master bathroom with the granite set in.

Swimming pool update...

It's been awhile but I have been really busy. It seems I can't catch up. A lot has been going on with the house recently. The painters arrived this week and have stained a LOT of the cabinets.

They are saying three weeks until painting is finished. John and Brandon have just about finished the cabinets. I have a lot of new pics but they are on Brooke's camera and I don't have it with me. Here's a picture of the swimming pool with the flagstone and tile. We are waiting on the electrition on the pool and then we will poor the concrete. I will try to get some pictures up as soon as I can get my hands on Brooke's camera.
