WEEK 29 – I’ve been asking Josh to put just one piece of siding on the house for weeks…just so I can see it…just so I can imagine what it’s going to look like and secretly to verify that I did, in fact, make the right choice out of all of those siding samples on the kitchen table.
Not that there’s anything we could have done about it now!
Week 29 was finally that week.
There have been lots of design decisions that have been made for the house thus far, and not a lot of design decisions that have been executed in the house because we’re not to that point yet. Things like hardware, cabinetry styles, tile, flooring, paint colors, etc. That’s where I feel like I’ve thrived in this process. And that is not the stuff that has generally been happening for the first 29 weeks of building. But the siding and wooden porch work…that was one of those design decisions too. So I’ve been really invested in seeing it go up and making sure that reality matched what I’d envisioned in my head while sorting through those siding samples.
I was not disappointed, and I’m really excited to be entering a stretch now where the face of the house will come along a little more each day.
That is if it stops raining. Week 30 has started with rain…
Nevertheless, a little rain will not dampen my spirits. I’m just so pleased with how the exterior is coming together!
