The Build: Exterior Stone, Siding, and Driveway Oh My!

After choosing our siding color, Jason and I had decided on a stone color immediately after seeing all the options out there. We love the dark colored stone with the hint of tan and light grey to tie it all together.
The driveway and sidewalk are in and my shoes couldn't be happier! The front of the house has been a muddy pit since the beginning and it's nice to finally walk on cement! Not to mention our driveway in Kalamazoo was gravel....what a pain that was to shovel in the winter! I love the small detail that even goes into the diagonal lines of the driveway.
I don't believe I ever got a picture of the west side of the house since they finished the siding...so here it is
And that's about all the updates I have so far! I know that since Jason has been gone there have been some more changes on the interior but I just haven't had a chance to get in there and check them out! Busy busy busy is all that I can say. BUT, I have met with the interior designer for a 2nd time to check out all the ideas she came up with to fit our lifestyle. I was floored with how perfect she matched the ideas in my head to what I wanted to see in our home. I can't wait for Jason to check them out when he gets home so we can order some furniture! AND we get to order our cabinets finally when Jason gets back as well.....decisions, decisions, here we come!!

  1. The siding color looks lovely! It reminded me of beautiful farm houses. Your dream home is coming into place, and it looks promising. Thank goodness, your driveway's almost done too! That will definitely help keep mud from forming during those rainy days. How about a celebration for the new home and super charming baby? Congratulations!

  2. That is certainly a house worth dreaming of! It's very huge but then it's well designed! The fact that you guys didn't use the same sidings in front as you did on the rest makes it easier to see where front is, even from afar.

  3. Your house siding combination is very remarkable, Abby! Normally, sidings go all the way around the house. It’s proven here that a classy arrangement of rockwork and wood is worth the risk! :D -->Miley

  4. Thanks guys! It wasn't easy to be patient while my husband and I both worked 40+ hour weeks and THEN had to focus on building. I pulled out my hair while taking care of the kids and Jason was falling asleep on the floor of the house working crazy hours. We will never forget this build!

  6. If you're interested in replacing the siding on your home, you're probably concerned with how much it will cost to have a Siding Company Jacksonville FL do the work. However, this isn't a one size fits all question, which means you'll need to find siding contractors to provide bids.

  11. A recognizable logo should appear on each housekeeper uniform to identify and promote the business. Certain staff positions require a name tag or embroidered name to appear on it. Consider the position and color of business logos and names to match it. Verify sizes for employees to ensure there are enough on hand for everyone. Have employees measure their chest, waist, hips and inseam to ensure the right fit. платен домоуправител
