Orange you glad you're here?

Welcome to our orange front door! It is a little bit different but I love it! Very non-traditional which would fit with us! It is "raucous orange" by sherwin williams and has a little reddish tint to it.  These two colors in both pics are the same color, just the indoor and outdoor lighting on my phone turned them out differently. But the barn doors in the playroom and main entry are both orange as well as the front door. Its bold but i am loving it! It goes great with the greys in the house.
A funny tidbit from psychology today on colors "Orange calls to mind feelings of excitement, enthusiasm, and warmth."
Perfect....just what we are going for!

Kitchen finishes

These are bad pics from my phone, a little blurry, but cabinet faces and pulls are going on! They are a grey stain over rift oak. I am so happy with how they turned out! The left picture is where the fridge will go. The pulls are haefla little recessed pulls. The pic on the right is basically a continuation of the first picture headed into the dining room.  This will serve as extra cabinetry and a buffet area for serving (to the right of this is the door to the deck/grill).

what a deal!

So i waited in line memorial day weekend for not only the 800$ off sale on the samsung steam washer dryer, but also for the 100$ energy star rebate, free delivery, and extra 10% off! We got them basically buy one get one free!

bumped back...

well we got bumped out another 4 or 5 weeks.  The pool guy isn't quite hitting the deadlines he said he would which has delayed driveway and fencing which has delayed final permits so they can start cleaning and punch lists. Bummer. But we will be in soon enough!!
Here are some updated pics...
1. Carpet is in, door knobs are on, alarm system is installed, mirrors are in, shower door is in. Its looking good in there!
2. as you can see in the distance (master closet) the door knobs are on!
3. J and a good friend who is an awesome landscaper worked tirelessly last week for 3 days putting in 10 trees (at cost yay) in the side yard. The rocks are what was broken up from under the foundation of the house. Bobcats, blisters, augers, and a little sweat equity goes a long way!
4. Pool concrete decking is being poured tomorrow so we can finally get things moving some more!
