The countdown is on...

We are about 2 weeks away from our DIG Date!


I don't think I have ever been excited about a big dirt hole, until now, cause it will mean our construction is underway.


All the paperwork seems to take so long with each set of hands it passes through. Are we already behind schedule Keen Developments? I hope not, cause I'm counting on that MAY date to be in my new studio!


If you haven't been following my IG stories, this week has been all about the windows and Exterior doors. There are SO many to choose from but we narrowed it down pretty quickly to these styles.


The front door will be a solid door with sidelites on both sides (this also for the 2 garage doors sans sidelites), second shown is the garden door on our walkout basement and the third drawn example I want for my studio. There is a big patio sliding door too but that will be all glass. I'm thinking black for most of the doors but stained walnut type colour for the front and the studio door. Our exterior windows will all be black on the outside and white on the inside.



It's going to be amazing! Here is the front and back view:



The most important feature on our new home was that it had ALL THE WINDOWS. I just counted them out and it brings us to about 41 windows total (not including the windows in the doors). I think we succeeded! Our current house has 12... TWELVE... It wasn't enough. I can never get enough natural light, especially with our long, LONG winters. So one last winter in our current home and then there will be LIGHT!


I'm so excited to be able to take pictures anywhere in the house and have some incredible natural lighting. My kids will get so tired of me taking ALL the pictures again lol.
