Finished product

Monday, April 26, 2010
Pictures from Friday April 23rd. The house is done...except for the finishing touches and a couple more rounds of cleaning. Closing in three weeks. It all looks so good in pictures...we can't wait to see it in person.

Finished kitchen...the backsplash is awesome!

Our favorite nephew...we hear he has already picked out his room : )
Pantry...may have to start shoping at Costco to fill it

Class Pictures

Just wanted to share some of the pictures from the GC class of 2010 photo shoot. It has been an awesome two years and I am so grateful for the 7 amazing girls I got to share it with. I love you all and will miss you so much!

Closing is exactly one month from today - May 17, 2010. We can't believe how fast it is coming. But we are ready. We are just working on getting our final ducks in a row for the move and closing.


Stairs are stained...they look great!

Things are really coming together. We love how everything looks. There was a minor set back in the last couple of weeks when a pipe leaked and soaked most of the master bedroom and bathroom. But all is well...everything that got wet is being replaced (carpet, hardwood, walls, etc) and will be good as new. We are so appreciative at how great everyone at Benton has been at addressing our questions and conerns.
In other news: Andrew passed his Alabama pharmacy law test so he can legally practice in the state of AL. So congrats to him....those tests are not easy. He is taking a week off for the move, then will start working back at CVS in Huntsville the next week.
Can't wait to get back home and have everyone over to visit! Hope y'all are having a wonderful spring!
Kelly and Andrew

Let there be light

Friday, March 26, 2010
Happy Spring Everyone! It is really starting to look like a house! All the lights are now installed and look great. They are also finished with the wood floors and tile (see tile shower picture). Bathroom cabinets are in and the appliances are delivered. Countdown to close: 55 days!

Side "friends entrance"...still not completely sure what the purpose of it is, but I am sure we will use it since it is there.

Lots of cabinet space! No more keeping our china in the guest bedroom closet!

We love, love our dining room fixture. You cannot imagine how much we agonized over it in the lighting store. We just couldn't find anything we liked, and wound up ordering out of one of their catalogs (which is scary considering you can't see it in person, or return it if you don't like it). But we are so glad we went with it, cause it looks great!

Granite, cabinets, and floors oh my!

Saturday, March 20, 2010
Tons of new things appearing in our house! The concrete has been poured for the driveway, walkways, and porches. Cabinets have been installed in the kitchen and bathrooms and the granite has been installed in the kitchen. They are working on the tile in the bathrooms, laundry, and around the fireplace. They are also working on the enormous amounts of hardwood in the house. It all looks so good! You can also see from the pictures that they are working on the pool at the end of the cul-de-sac. That will be so fun this summer!

We are 60 days out from closing and that means we were able to get our mortgage rate locked in this past week! It is awesome that the rates have stayed down these past few months! Benton says that everything is still on track and that May 20th is a firm date for closing! Yay!!!

The East's were in town last weekend and we had the most productive weekend ever shopping for the house. We made a day trip down to Gaffney for the pottery barn outlet and to say we hit the motherload is an understatement. We even had to rent a penske truck to get all the stuff back to greensboro. We loaded up on furniture at pottery barn and then hit IKEA for some great decorating and organizing stuff. Our apartment is now full of furniture...but moving in is going to be such fun!

It's been a while since I last posted so I thought I would put up some new pictures. They have put down the gravel to pour the driveway, sidewalk, and back porch. The permanent stairs are in place as well as the cubby. The cubby is super cute...and we were so glad that we were "talked into" getting it. Someday there might even be little backpacks hanging on it. : )

Andrew's parents are heading up here to NC this weekend. It will be so nice to get to visit with them and get some good shopping done for the house. Monday we are going to visit the pottery barn outlet and IKEA and hopefully we will find some good stuff. : )

Brick and siding are done outside! Inside the builders are busy working on the fireplace (see below), trim, and doors. We also hear that the cubby is in place, but we have not seen proof of that yet. : )
We are so happy with the progress and are falling more in love with our house every time we see it! We can't wait to close in May and move in!!


Sunday, February 21, 2010 Alabama?

Monday, February 15, 2010
We have had our share of snow this winter in NC. It seems like every weekend we get some more of that white stuff falling from the sky. So we are more than happy to share a little with you guys back in Alabama...we are sick of it.
Aunt Kay and uncle Freddie got out in the Huntsville "blizzard" Sunday to take some pictures of our house in the snow. Who knows when the house will see snow again... : )
Thanks Aunt Kay!

Happy Valentines Day!

Framing walk-through occured on thursday and went smoothly. Everyone is singing the praises of our construction manager and crew. Dry wall was then delivered friday afternoon and they have already made huge progress installing it. The report is that they are currently two weeks ahead of schedule!

Luckily, Gary and Ann were able to sneak out there this weekend and get some verses written on the door frames before everything got closed in. : )

Happy Valentines Day!
Love, Kelly and Andrew
