Slow Going, Granite Venting

Well, folks, there's not much exciting to report today. We've got our pre-drywall walk thru this afternoon and the drywall crew will begin either tomorrow or Saturday morning. Yay!

The kids and I visited the house yesterday and noticed the guys were there putting in the insulation on the external walls. I also noted the moulding around our front door and garage door had been completed since our last trip out there. See?

Nice! I asked our PM about the siding (as in, where is it??) and he mentioned something about rain delays, etc... All I know is I was spoiled over that first week of progress that now this slow moving stuff is really boring! Let's get 'er done, right?! Hopefully we'll see the siding go up between now and the beginning of next week.

On a totally unrelated note, I am not in love with our granite selection.
Giallo Napoleon
We were only given maybe 10-12 samples, and about 8 or 9 of them were dark (black, dark green, dark brown, etc.). With the espresso cabinets, we HAD to go with something light. This was pretty much the only option, but the more I look at it, the more yellow/gold hues I see and therefore, the more I hate it. I'd SO much prefer something like this:

Alabama White

But alas, it wasn't an option so we'll get what we get. I wonder how happy hubs will be if I tell him we'll be replacing the granite we just paid big bucks for within our first year in the new house??

Not very, I'm guessing...

  1. I love the molding on the outside. Really sets it off. As far as the granite goes. You might be surprised once everything is in the kitchen how much better it really looks.

  2. I love that granite. The white would be too stark. :)
