Here’s the latest progress on the house! Everyday a little more gets done so it’s even closer to being completed when you read this than these pictures reflect 🙂

 exterior colors!!!

We saw a house on one of those HGTV shows and just LOVED it. It was a dark gray color with white trim and dark gray shutters and garage door, so we’re doing the same thing. We are still waiting on the shutters (the wrong ones were ordered) but garage door is up just don’t have a picture of it and it’s not painted yet. I LOVE the colors!!! We picked the door color because I don’t like red doors (kinda country for my style) and we really wanted something beachy but yet also fresh and modern and I think it’s perfect!

close up of porch (the top dormers are now painted)

While WE love the blue door…I guess not everyone agrees. I actually got an email from our homeowners association telling us we needed to change it! Can you believe that?!?! It really hurt my feelings because obviously someone must think it’s tacky enough to complain about you know? We are working it out with them and will hopefully be able to keep our door color the way it is because we both love it and hate the idea of changing it. Do you guys like it too? Or do we just have crazy taste???

Looking good huh?!?! Couple more days until Christmas…do you think it’ll be done? Will Santa pull off a Christmas miracle for us???
