house updates: the first snag…

so things have really been clicking along with the house lately…lots getting done, loving all the additions…and then…..(cue dramatic music here…) the outside trim went up.

the SECOND i saw it my stomach dropped. (and yes, i FULLY realize the phrase “first world problems” completely applies here..) but it was NOT the right color. we wanted a slightly off-white trim to counter balance the gray siding…how nice, right? yes. and… it would’ve been awesome, had we been given the right color…but we weren’t. we were given..what was is called again? oh yes: “gross cream-yellow pee-tinge”..by sherwin williams.

so after MUCH (let me be clear: MUCH!!!!) back and forth with the production company, our project manager, and sherwin williams themselves, we finally have a decision: maybe they will repaint it. maybe. they will let us know “soon”.

so, fingers crossed everyone! i know that these things are normal and probably should be expected when home-building, but things have been going so well thus far, and this was just a giant hole in our balloon of excitement. oh well. again, “first world problems..” it will be worked out, and if not, well, then, no one say anything to me about it ever when you come and visit.

but other than that, really great things are happening! check it out! oh! and november 13th is our close date!! so close!

SO....here's the trim as it stands now. yeah. not white right??!! yellow, right??!! yes. i am right.

counter tops are in! this was the one part of our house i was the most anxious about. and i really like them! it's called 'india copper brown' and it's great..dark but doesn't streak easily or show water stain. win. win.
