Our New Home

I have had lots of people asking what our new house will look like so its time for an update! It is currently being dry wall taped and is supposed to be done some time in September. The new house is around 1,000 square feet bigger than our current home and it is on a pie shaped lot so our back yard is nice and big! The main floor is very open with a flex room right by the front door, upstairs has 4 bedrooms with a bonus room.

Floor plan for the main floor:

These are the colors I chose for the outside of our home. The grey color to the bottom right is our siding color, the white on the left is our trim color, and the blue on the right that is touching the grey and white will be the colour of the door.

And this is a close up of the rock that goes around our garage as well as our fireplace in the living room.


This is the progress of the outside. The trim around the windows still needs to be made white but other than that it is finished. IMG_0781 IMG_0792IMG_0794IMG_0809

For the kitchen we are going for a bright, clean and airy feel. We decided on white cabinets, white subway tile for a backsplash with darker grout, light white/grey granite and gold hardware. Here where my inspiration photos:

We chose these gold cup pulls for all the drawers in the kitchen and knobs for all the cupboard doors.

The tile that will be in the back entry just off of the garage and in our bathrooms will be this medium grey tone.


This is a photo of our hardwood colour and our carpet is the lower square of carpet.

Our new wall colour is called Smoky and this is it held up to our current wall colour. Similar just lighter.IMG_0771 IMG_0773

That’s all for now! I will keep you updated, hopefully the cupboards and fun stuff start going in soon!
