Today we got our kitchen and utility concept drawings. I’m not sure how I feel about the bench? I definitely think that it would be handy for putting on dirty shoes, hanging coats etc. What do you think? I think it looks a bit random 😫
I asked for the broom cupboard to be in the corner as I find corner cupboards awkward to use so thought that would make best use of the space. The other high unit it a tall integrated freezer.
Our utility room is going to be the same colour as our kitchen but with standard doors whereas our kitchen is going to be in-frame.
This is our other contender, still hunting down the floor plan for this bad boy! It’s vastly different from the happy bright white farm house, but I love the black exterior here with the natural wood accents, and the bright white 2 story interior is #amazing. This style house fits better in our community where lots of the houses are log cabins, and takes full advantage of the view of the meadow with those big windows. What do I do? Black or white??? #buildanewlifeinthecountry#cabininthewoods#buildingahouse#decisionsarehard#pickingafloorplanishard
“Building elevations are horizontal views of a building's exterior, usually taken from a point of view perpendicular to the principal vertical surfaces. They illustrate the size, shape, and materials of the exterior surfaces as well as the size, proportion, and nature of the door and window openings within them.” - Francis D.K.

Messy comes with being mudded right? To our pleasant surprise everything is just about caught up with the house. We also had all of our appliances we ordered back on Labor Day delivered! 💘 Now we wait patiently for our cabinets and floors.... and countertops... and trim... and paint... and fixtures... well you get it. Hope y’all all had a great Wednesday and you’re staying warm in the snow so many of you are getting. 💖 #belcherranch
We started framing the basement yesterday, you can probably see the stack of lumber in the background. It feels like Christmas came early and I'm so excited that things are starting to take shape! However, this has been my biggest battle: my blood sugar. Today was better than yesterday. Yesterday, I was below 40 twice. I just call it mandatory break time.
I have witnessed other type one diabetics who let their condition set limits for what they can do. I want to be an advocate for doing it anyway. Yes, I'm exherting myself and it's more difficult for me, because of diabetes, than it would be for someone else. But I'm doing it anyway. Same thing goes for being a female in a male-dominant profession. You're a woman and you want to lift heavy things and build walls with (gasp) power tools? Do it anyway. Go, be awesome doing whatever you're doing! Most of the time, the only person in your way is you!
For those interested in our exterior details 👋🏻, and also for those who don’t want to see 50,000 pictures of our house frame 😂
We chose to complete the exterior in full ”colonial white” hardie board. The fascia will be ”sterling gray” and the shutters and front door will be a charcoal gray.👌🏻
I can’t wait to share more details in the coming weeks! Stay tuned and I’ll be filling your feed with all the deets. 🏡 .
Cinnamon Shore developer and CEO of Sea Oats Group Jeff Lamkin recently sat down with @bloomberg where he discussed how he’s developed new hurricane-proof construction procedures to help beach homes withstand stronger storms. Watch the full video by clicking the link in our bio.
Another exterior shot while impatiently awaiting the mudding process? Absolutely. As you’ve seen we are ripping our hair out over paint choices and stains this week. 👿 We’ve decided on a bunch of things but what about porch railings (back) and posts? 🤔 Naturally another poll story is coming your way so stay tuned. For now here’s some playing with photoshop. #belcherranch
32 DAYS UNTIL WE MOVE IN!!! Can’t believe it’s actually almost here!!! This view still gets me every time!! On a different note, I need your help deciding on the green or white for one of our rooms. Pics of both are in my stories but let me know below which one you like more ❤️ #hellofashionhome
