GREAT VISIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, we went to the house TWO TIMES this weekend! Well, I went twice and my husband went once :)  I just couldn't resist and I wanted to walk my parents through to check things out as well.  When we went Saturday we were surprised to show up to a house NOT full of workers.  Usually they are working but we managed to go over when they weren't ( which we were kinda glad about).  We saw that our house had its first coat of paint, trim and doors, staircase, cabinets in the kitchen and cabinets and vanity in both bathrooms!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is really starting to take shape now!  Then when I went back today they were putting up the siding.  It looked really good.  I can't wait to see it done! I am concerned about the color of the railings on the stairs.  They will not be matching my floors which bugs me so we will have to have someone come in after we close and stain them for us.  The reason being is that we upgraded to the hickory floors which have a natural look and have black running through them.  Unfortunately, all of the stains RH offers are more of a true brown and thus none match our floors.   Anyhow, small detail that we will have to take care of.  I plan on having them stained black to match.  I'll attach a picture of what I plan to do, tell me what you think!!!

Here's what we saw this weekend:

Here are our stairs.  They will only put a clear coat over the rails:

Here are our floors.  ( I am not a fan of the look together)

Here's what I would like to do to the rails:
Notice the spindles will stay white and then do a black stain on the rails and the posts and the floor board.  We shall see how it comes together!


  1. The house is looking really good! I love those cabinets and cannot wait to see mine installed too!

    It's a shame they don't have a stain that'll match the floors... but I think the black, or even an espresso color, will look nice.

  2. Thanks! Yeah, I am thinking something similar to what is surrounding the picture that I took of the floor in the showroom.

  3. I love your combination! We have espresso rails--you are going to love them. They are goregeous!! You are making great progress with your home. Thank God, for home depot and lowes so that you can find the color you want for your railings. :-)

  4. Thank you! I am waiting to see all of your pics!!! Did you have RH do your stain?

  5. We built the Victorai falls too!!! I LOVE the kitchen layout you chose,w e chose the same thing , if you take a look at some pics I posted, you can see your future kitchen !! We chose Wyoming Cherry Bordeaux cabs...... Good luck !! It will be beautiful!!!!!!!
