The Build: Exterior Almost Complete and More Decisions to be Made

Painting is really coming along on the exterior, but not yet complete. The white trim has yet to be painted but that didnt stop Jason from adding more corbels. Love them!! I love the "jewelry" on the garage doors as well.
The living room beams have been placed but have yet to be stained. Perfect size!
At this visit to the house, Jason had me make a few decisions on the trimwork of the columns at the bottom of the stairwell. He spent a few hours coming up with a few different options and I can't wait to see the finished product.
Doors have been placed around the house and are looking great. I can't wait to see the rest of the dark hardware on them. The first picture of the doors is the entry way closet and the second picture is the closet across from the mudroom lockers, with the single door going to the downstairs bath.
We also need to order our decking! We have been looking at the composite decking but dont have lots of choices when it comes to colors. Jason is holding up the samples to the house and we are leaning towards the middle color that looks most like actual wood.
Austin tries to help clean up so Daddy can come home and play!
Decisions have been made and hopefully more progress is around the corner. Jason is working at the house every night and all weekend now so that we can continue with our projection to move in at the end of September. We are both becoming exhausted with this routine but with the move just a few short months away, we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately Jason's light is on until the wee hours of the morning lately.


  1. Just did a double take on your stair post. Not only is it really similar to ours but I have a pic from about the same angle, it seriously looks so much like ours! Nice work btw, it will be so worth it!

  2. I would love to know the following:
    Exterior color (is that cement board)
    Exterior Trim
    Stones (where there from & color)

    We are building & I absolutely LOVE your home!!

  3. That is cement board but it is custom, so we matched it as best as we could to the siding which is called wind swept smoke. The stone is called Black Rundle. I love that color too! Shingles were painted the same custom color to match the siding.

    1. Great info do you know the brands you used for paint? Siding? & Stone?

    2. check out more details at my new post

  4. Paint is Sherwin Williams and Siding is Virtex Extreme and Stone is Country Ledgestone Black Rundle.

  5. Trying to locate the exterior paint from Sherwin Williams today & the wind swept smoke was not a color they could locate? Can you clarify? Thank you so much for helping me out.
