A Snack to Hold you Over

  Things are wrapping up at Weld House Home #2.  I have plans to put together a tour of the finished project as soon as I get the green light.  Bedding is being purchased, cabinets are being organized, and the family is settling in.  In the meantime, here are a few more peaks of the kitchen countertops and backsplash.
I really like how it all came together.
I learned from the Mrs. yesterday that she has already switched up the look of the open shelving.
It sounds cute and I'm anxious to check it out.
Here's a shot of the master closet.  Mr. Welder constructed the shelving and poles.
It turned out great.
Back to the kitchen.
This area is still in the works.  I promise you'll be impressed with the final product.
I can picture its cuteness now.
A peek at the mantle.
The front door was finished.  The rug is cute-the blue tape has to go :)
I hope this holds you over.
I'll admit, I'm anxious to see it all too.
But you can't rush making a house a home.
Stay tuned for the tour.

 I just wanted to drop in and give you a quick update on Weld House Home #2.  A few loose ends are still being tied, but the family is living and enjoying their new home, complete with carport.
 Decorating, furniture arranging, and TV watching has just begun.
I spy something one cute...
 The Stainless Steel countertops are installed and so are all of the appliances.  A backsplash is due to be installed soon.  A bead board wall was put in place on the island wall, which will also receive some exciting changes shortly.
 I love the bright Fiesta dishes and can't wait to see how the rest of the house is coming along in real life...
Pictures like these just don't quite cut it for me.  I guess next time I tell Mr. Welder to not forget to take pictures, I should also throw in to not forget to turn on the lights first.  He comes home bragging about how homey things are becoming and these are the pictures he brings to prove it.  I tell him it's not for me but that you people want to know and we can't keep you waiting...I guess I'll have to go take some of my own photos.  Until then we'll have to be patient.  I'm just picking on Mr. Welder.  I just wanted to let you know that things are moving along great and eventually I hope to put together a house tour.  Since the owners are family, I can go over after they get settled in and show you the good stuff...like my nephew's room that I've heard a lot about.  I can't wait to see it and to share it with you.  And I'd like to wish the Weld House Home #2 family a happy time making their new house into their cozy home.  Fun times!

Happy Birthday Builder!

 So what does a good wife do for her hubby's birthday?  She surprises him by taking the day off from her real job and works for him for the day.  And I was pleasantly surprised when I got to meet a neighbor and blog fan.  It's always nice to meet those you talk to all the time :)  You blog readers are such good listeners.
 Mr. Welder worked on the windows.
 Just look at me be a good wife some more.
 Don't the finished windows look fab?!
 The dormer window was trimmed too.
 The beam received its black buckles.
And look!  Appliances are starting to show up.  That must be a sign that move-in day is approaching.
In case you're worried, we didn't work Mr. Welder's entire birthday.
We had a nice dinner and partied at the bookstore.
We're so wild!
