Saddling up to the Peninsula!

    I'm back with a fresh set of pictures after the cleaning crew did their thing. The interior is looking awesome! I feel the excitement of the new house building now! My closing was supposed to be a week away but as I mentioned I had some bumps in the road so it's pushed out a bit. That's okay though, the anticipation is fun and more time to plan stuff!  The drywall guys did an excellent job in fact we were hard pressed to find any nits on the drywall. The Saddle hardwood floors look excellent. I will show them a few punch list items on the floor but nothing major. At this point I am waiting for exterior work so hopefully stone and brick coming soon. I wish the power were on so I can see the place lit up, so I have to rely on natural light for now.  So once again, for your viewing pleasure, and completely randomized by the blogger editor, here ya go!
Foyer and Front door. The room on the left is officially a dining room but  here it will be a den / sitting room. Probably have a couch and recliner in here, coffee table maybe and of course a nice HD TV to watch House Hunters and Storage Wars.

Standing in the Front bedroom. In the Verona this can also be a  living room  This is why we are making the dining room kind of like a living room. Here the guest has a convenient attached bathroom. 

This is the study. I am not sure what I was thinking but chances are it was about another HD TV.

Morning Room side windows. These are optional.

My favorite room, the Bonus Room. This room will be quite busy with computers, exercise equipment and of course an HD TV.

Yes another picture of the bonus room closet.

Well if you don't know what this is, you aren't following my blog.

I will be putting some Parker counter stools here, most likely copying Rachel's (she gave me permission).

That would be me at the center island!

In case I didn't mention it, I am sooo excited about these massive counter tops!
