Brick Walls!!!....and a ton of other updates!

October 12: One thing Jake and I really wanted in our home was some brick walls inside to cozy it up! We got a brick wall in our master bed room and in the down stairs family/dinning room area! Ah we are so excited! The man that laid the brick was amazing! The brick is a veneer.  So its old brick cut in slices so it does not have the weight of a full brick on a wall.
Check out these cool corner pieces.  We wanted the brick to go into the window wells to give the look of thick solid brick. So the brick can lay on a corner and have a nice edge and give the window a fake depth with brick!
The amazing brick layer himself hard at work!
October 13: It looks so good! I cant wait to see it with grout in it! We had him lay the bricks wider than normal and are going to have them do a semi messy, thick grout! I cant wait to see it all finished!
The start of brick on the main floor :)

October 16: Railing around front porch  toilets and pedestal sink in, working fire place with gas, and wanes coating finished and painted!
Its funny how the blue is even more vibrant at different times of the day! I am really liking the blue :)
October 17: appliances hanging out in the family room, granite counter tops in the kitchen in, kitchen sink in, lights in the basement, one garage door installed, grout in bricks, doorknobs on doors, hanging rods in closets...whoa!
 We got a granite sink. Sink was a weird choice for us. There are so many options but our favorite was the granite sink. No scratch, no show, and the best part is it has a low middle divider so you can wash cookies sheets with ease! That was the selling point for me!
 Down stairs brick wall done! Grout and all!
 Upstairs brick done!
Jake trying to get me to figure out whats new on the doors. I finally found the knobs. I didn't know he was taking pictures of me...
Lights in the basement! And all the lights can turn on! Its pretty awesome!
 One Garage door installed! One more to go! I cant wait to see them closed and how it looks!
By cute house! Cant wait to move in :)
