July was a super charged month because we needed to have occupancy by the end of the month since we’d given notice on our rental and absolutely had to be able to move in here. Every single day was busier than you can imagine and I was spending everyday on site all day — thank goodness I work from home!
All our shiplap was installed!!! This was a huge milestone for me because it was something I’d planned on doing since before we even specifically started designing this house!
Countertops went in! We did pure white Italian Quartz everywhere and loved the way it turned out! We also did a 3″ mitered edge on all of them and couldn’t be happier with the chunky aesthetic.
We finally got interior railings!!! Yay safety! We chose to do the simplest white pickets and white posts possible. Nobody really believed me when I kept trying to tell them that we literally just wanted a 6×6. No caps or detailing. And it turned out so beautifully!
Lighting was finalized. Our house was fully painted. Our flooring went down. Basically this month turned our house from a construction site into something that really felt like a real HOUSE.
And… WE GOT OCCUPANCY!!!!
