New Home Update

Well yesterday we spent a couple of hours walking through our new home and looking for any mistakes. To my surprise there was a lot! After we were done I was shocked at how many little orange dots covered the walls, floors, ceiling and cabinetry. We ended up listing 27 items that need to be fixed before our move in date. A couple of the items were: Our living room ceiling is stained, when I looked up I was like WTF is that? A stain! Some dickhead walked through our entire house with muddy shoes on, ruining our off white carpets! Speaking of carpets, they used two different colours in our living room! haha You can’t see it as clear in the photo below as you can when standing on it, but it’s defiantly different colours. Now that I have your attention with the unmatched carpet take a look at the sliding door above. Do you see how they have a vent right in front of the sliding door; yeah that’s not supposed to be there! Ops

Below is Gryphen’s bedroom, she loved running between the rooms and looking our her window. We’re excited to get her a window seat. It’s going to be so much fun decorating her room with little things that she loves. Devon and I have discussed having the children share a room but for now she’ll have the place all to herself. Above is the second bedroom for guests and Devon’s massive computer! This will be the only bedroom with a television in it, the reasoning for that is Devon’s computer monitor will be mounted. I hate having televisions in the bedroom. If I’m going to watch it, it’s not going to be in there!

Our master bedroom! If you’re wondering yes this carpet has muddy feet marks all over it too! Surprisingly I haven’t spent much time thinking about what I’d like to do for our bedroom, Devon and I have been having heated discussions on the headboard we’d like so I think we need to decide that before anything else! haha
This is our bathroom and now that I’m looking at it I’m wondering if we should have went with the additional standup shower, too bad. I was really disappointed with the countertop, there’s a lot of red all through it and seeing how Devon dislikes the colour red I’m sure it’ll be brought up a bunch.

Hope you’ve enjoyed these photos, can’t wait to share more with you after we move in and begin decorating!

 

A Sneak Peak of our new home

Yesterday we ventured over to our new home and were able to for the first time go inside and check it out! When you read through all the paperwork when you purchase they tell you that you’re not permitted to do an insight visit until construction has been completed but what we found out is our neighbours have been “sneaking” in since the building began to take a look at everything! The front of place is almost done, just needs a bit more paint. Gryphen really loved being able to run through the house and explore her future room.

There’s a lot of cupboard space and we love that we can have stools at the counter. I felt like the greatroom/ livingroom would be a bit larger but we’ll have to see how everything looks once our furniture is all setup! So much natural light comes in, love it!

Gryphen’s bedroom had some really amazing windows, it’s going to be so much fun find the perfect window seat for her. After what felt like we ran through the house Devon, Gryphen and I can’t wait until we move in this summer! We’re all looking forward to finally having a place we can call home.
