Progress – Foundation Poured

20 Apr

Each stage of the house is increasingly more exciting than the last for us.

So, as of April 9th, the most exciting part so far was seeing the foundation poured.

The foundation is one of the most important parts of the house.  It can make or break it.  Without a strong foundation the walls could crumble down at any moment.  However, the most exciting part is that the foundation is done and the framing can begin!  That is when we will really see the rooms that we’ve stared at on paper for so long come to life.  We are so ready for that.

Until then, you will have to settle for an up close and personal shot of the foundation.

We never thought that we’d be so excited over a slab of concrete!

Just for fun, I thought I’d show you what I’ve been working on recently…

This is my inspiration board for our Living Room.  I love the light/bright colors.  It is so fun and airy.  In case you are wondering, our couch will ‘float’ in the room and behind it is the kitchen so that is why I don’t have anything hanging over the couch, but I’m thinking that color gray will be perfect for the living/kitchen area.  (Side Note:  If you haven’t checked out Polyvore, it’s pretty awesome!  Such a great way to see how everything will look together before you spend tons of money…also good for showing the Hubs!)  Sadly, the only thing we own in the picture right now is the couch, so it will be a long process to actually make it look like the picture.  Plus, I’m thinking Hubs might need some persuading, but I’ve got several months…right?!

Here’s to wishing and hoping and, of course, daydreaming!
