Decisions, Decisions

How many panes in your windows?

What color windows?

What kind of brick?

Do you want tumbled or uniform?

What color mortar?

What color sand for the mortar?

How do you want your brick joints?

What color roofing?

What color soffit?

What color cabinets?

Where do you want your appliances?

Where do you want your trash can?

Where do you want your lighting fixtures?

Do you know how you're going to arrange your furniture?

What size trim do you want?

You get the idea. I'm over it.

I think my enthusiasm is curbed by this sinus infection and I just want to sleep.

Sheetrock is up and the mudding has begun. Now it's time to think about paint, trim, tile, faucets and interior doors. Every time I think I'm finished with all the major decision making something else comes up.
 This is what the door looks like that I want.

This is how I want the house trimmed out.

To save a little money but to stick with the same style, I'm thinking of doing this upstairs.

It's just like the downstairs without the extra crown on top. I like it. I just don't want it to look cheap. Please feel free to put your 2 cents in on what you think of the look.

Now I'm trying to pick out paint.
I'm tired of "builder beige." I think I'm going to pick a gray color for the main parts of the house. I want  it to be a true gray. Not green or blue, just gray. Not a depressing, I wanna kill myself gray.  

So here's where the house is now. Hopefully, it won't be too much longer before we can get moved in. I'm ready for my decisions to be as easy as frozen or on the rocks.

  1. I like the door style and the trim idea. Not so sure about the gray paint color tho.
