The Lichte's New Farmhouse.... Week 38

Week 38.... It took close to two hours to uploads these pictures for some reason, so I might be brief with description. Plus I am trying to watch the ACM's and it's hard to watch Luke Bryan and type.

Our week 38 Picture. Grey rainy skies that are keeping my farmer out of the field.

We got a few columns last week. They are so pretty - I am very anxious to get the rest up.

We went with a 10 inch slight tapered column. They will get painted a bright white to match the siding. (Check out that view) 

Week 38 also came with gutters. That's close to one of the last things that we have on the outside. Soon we can do our dirt work and get a "yard" established. At least dirt can start to settle so we can pour concrete pads and sidewalks sooner rather than later.

We will have all of our gutters put underground with tile... Luckily I know someone who can do that.

Finished the "trim" around the garage doors as well. It was hard to decide to do much of an elaborate trim around the doors. White house and white trim, nothing really pops as far as trim goes so we have saved a little there.... maybe... 

 Our painters started last week. They have been doing nothing but prep work. Caulking EVERYTHING - which is good. I am really anxious to start seeing colors. Although I have no idea what colors I am doing. Maybe I will do a "Color Post" later in the week. I know I know- you are dying of anticipation.. 

AND.... We got the rest of the cabinets (well almost - still missing a 1/2 bath vanity)... This is the other part of the desk in my farmers office. It's basically just a table with a pencil drawer that I had them make, it's completely move able. It is made of maple and will be stained a dark cherry.

AND.... The Kitchen Island... It too is made of maple and will be stained a dark cherry. We also did counter top templates so I am very anxious for that to come together. 

The end that is open to the eat in area contains this open bookshelf. I currently only have 4 cookbooks so I need to get ALOT more. 

Those legs.... 

The whole kitchen....

My farmhouse sink is in the middle with a dishwasher on the left and an ice maker on the right. 

 I keep forgetting about all of the cool things that happened last week until I keep going through these pictures. How could I forget about his marble tiled bathroom floor. It's stunning.

This little "design" is a basket weave marble and foes right in front of where our bathtub will go. I  can't wait for the bathtub to get set. Who am I kidding - I can't wait to take a bath in here.

It's a white Carrara Marble.

And the laundry room. It is really hard to get a great picture with the window and the floor is SO DIRTY, but it's a beautiful black granite with a dark grout.  

AND we had that old sink refinished. It will go in the laundry room. It's fun hearing stories about this sink. It's from my farmers grandparents house. From cleaning out old apple butter making supplies to grandma Lichte washing her hair and warming up medicine for the animals. I plan to make this sink very proud in my home for the next generation.

That's it for house stuff this week, but this afternoon  my farmer and I did venture out mushroom hunting. We have lots and lots and lots of acres BUT very few with trees. We were unsuccessful but had a great time together tromping through the woods. 

This is me trying to take pictures behind a very fast 4-wheeler... 

I bet someday this little creek and trees will be some cool fort. Similar to the ones my siblings and I would make. 

I don't really like mushrooms... But my farmer does.. So we looked - and we looked.... and we looked. 

And I.... Well I took pictures of pretty wild flower. An looked for mushrooms (through my lens) 

Isn't he the sweetest?

That's all for Week 38...
