New House Construction

Naughty Bad Puppies

by Kay~Kacey on 11/26/2012

I love these puppies…honestly, I do…

cavalier puppies

They love the new house and love to run around outside…and, well…they run around inside too. Sometimes in less than a nano second…they destroy…

Why, yes, they decided to eat the wall in the stairway. I mean they have NEVER eaten our walls before…so who knew to watch out for that???

And…for the record…they have never, ever, ever shown any interest in eating our carpet either…

So annoyed at them…and why did they wait to do this in the NEW house??? Argh.

It’s a good thing they are so cute…and we have a lot of penned off, gated off, doors shut areas in the new house now…

Almost Finished-New Construction

by Kay~Kacey on 10/23/2012

Yay, we’re almost finished. See the new grass coming up? You can see where we stopped the first weekend, and where we planted the next time. I’m just excited to see the grass coming up!! It was so much work! I never want to see another bale of straw!

The flooring is in. It is lock together vinyl flooring that looks like wood planks. I love it. Should be great for 5 boys, 2 dogs, and living off a gravel road, don’t you think? Here it is looking back towards our front door.

Here is the flooring up against my window seats in my breakfast nook.

Oh, a quick look at our master bathroom sinks and mirrors…and the faucets that I finally, finally decided on. Oh..wait…a beer. Oops. How did that get in this photo??

And here is our beautiful fall view off the back deck. So pretty. So excited to move in!

If everything goes as planned, we’ll be moving in this weekend. Not sure where we’ll get help, because it’s Mizzou’s homecoming so the boys will be busy…but, we’ll manage. Might wait and move heavy stuff next week when we can get boy helpers. Anyway…I’m sure they’ll be moving in photos to share soon!

Chandelier Paradise

by Kay~Kacey on 10/15/2012

Yes, the post about my beloved chandeliers. I’m sure my builder thinks I’m a bit nuts. I have them everywhere in the new house. So hard to pick them out but they are in now and I love them!

First up, my chandelier in my beloved teal office!

I know, just perfect, right? Here it is all lit up. Okay, it still have the covers on the shades, but you get the picture.

The next one is so cool. It’s over my bathtub!!

Here it is turned on. It throws such pretty patterns of light on the ceiling and walls.

I also have a chandelier in my pantry…doesn’t everyone?? 😉

By the time they put up the pantry chandelier, I’m pretty sure they thought I was crazy…

While not technically what I’d call a chandelier…more of a hanging light…here is the fixture over our kitchen table. It has those clear edison bulbs in it that look like antique bulbs. They are 60 watt, but not very bright…so I’m not sure what we’ll do with that. Might try clear regular 60 watt bulbs and see if that helps. Love the look of the fixture, just not the light coming from it. Yes, that is a problem, right?

Liberal license here calling this a chandelier…but wanted to show off our ceiling fan light in our bedroom. Love, love the cut glass of the light fixture on it.

AND…the cut glass on the ceiling light fixture of the fan matches the cut glass on the chandelier in the stairway going down to the lower level.

I love and adore the stairway too. Isn’t it pretty with its spindles and big window? Okay, not all the spindles are in yet, but we’re getting there.

We’re looking at two more weeks before move in. Anyone want to come help pack up The Love Nest???
