Lots of painting and trimming going on...

...and thankfully - we have been blessed with the best crew.  You know I have found out in this house building phase of our life - just how important somebody's "word" is.  Our friends, Andy Judd - from Judd's Painting and Trim, and his fantastic dad, brother David and friend, Chris - have made this part of the process absolutely painless.  And we are very thankful for their honesty, hard work and their talents.  Here is just a peek at some of their handiwork.

I shared with Andy what I wanted in the office - I came back that afternoon - and TADA - it was done.  It is a simple treatment done with 1X4's and paint.  The color at the top of the wall is Sherwin Williams Sea Salt.  Such a peaceful color - I looooooove it!
 Here are my doors I shared with you - I'm crazy about them - I think they look a lil' "old fashioned."
 This week Andy is working on the stairway - again - I just wanted something very simple - no frufru (is that even a word?) - Anyway, he understood what I meant.  Now, it is not finished yet - still has to be painted and just over look all those "drywall dust footprints".  Those treads give you an idea of the hardwood floor color - oh my - will I ever keep them clean? In my dreams, right.
 Here is the hallway coming off the garage - actually this is one side of the laundry room.  I've chose to put my beadboard up on the wall at a height of 6 ft - to protect those hallway walls from lil' handprints.  Actually this same treatment is used in all the bathrooms as well and that I dearly love.
 Now, this is one end of the kitchen/dining room area.  This is just a primer coat - it will be the same as the laundry room above - which is also a Sherwin Williams paint color called Rainwashed.  On the right side of that beam will be a faux tin ceiling - but let me ask you, what color do you think - white or silver?  I can't decide - all my fixtures are bronze.  Lucky for me - paint sprayers make quick work out of things - so they were kind enough to spray some furniture pieces for me as well.  All I'll have to do is sand and glaze - yeah!
Well, this is where we are.  I appreciate all the kind comments regarding the loss of my FIL.  We sure do miss him - he so wanted to see our home completed and it hard not sharing in the details with him.  But I know he is still happy for us and shining down on us.  After all - he gave us the valley where our future home sits - and we find a peace there like never before.

Have a happy week!

Love all the work going on. And the colors are so comfortable and cool looking. Love the way the 1x4's look on the wall and the bead board. Great job these guys are doing. I know it feels good to have honest people working for you and not trying to take you for a ride with shotty work.

Thanks everybody for all the great compliments - thank y'all so much - I'm glad you like it.

Jennifer - you ask where I got my doors - they cam from Wholesale Hardwood Interiors in Campbellsville, KY - also known as WHI. I don't know where you are - but if you are within the surrounding states - they deliver. Let me know if I can help you any further.

Hi Cathy,
Wow! everything is really moving fast now. How fun to see the interior coming to life. I love all your wood work its beautiful. My guest bedroom is painted Sea Salt, it is a very pretty color. We are in the process of having crown molding and new door trim installed. Also we have plans for the Master Bedroom.
In our last home we had added all the wood trim and really miss it in the new house so I can't wait to have the all the wood work done.
I'm looking forward to seeing more photo's of your beautiful new home.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

I just think your place is turning out so beautiful. We are renovating our home and some of the things you are doing are things that we have talked about doing. I love the trim work that you and your huxband have been doing. I am looking forward to our kitchen/dining/breakfast renovations. Keep up the beautiful work.
