Finally!!! After almost 6 long months of framing… the house is moving on! We are now into electrical, plumbing and painting!! Whoop Whoop!! My color scheme of white and black was turned down 4 times by the neighborhood design committee! It wasn’t until I showed them a local modern white farmhouse they could drive by and see in person, until they finally said YES!! (My slight persistence and annoying calling everyday may have also pushed them a little 🙂 Whatever, it was… it worked and I am a HAPPY girl!! My dreams of a modern white farmhouse were NOT going to be crushed by some local design committee! In our rendering of the house, there was NO color on it. It was a very basic black and white rendering so we were a little nervous when we chose the color and trim! But I am SO happy with how it turned out!! It truly changed the entire feel of the house and the design of the modern farmhouse look is starting to take shape! Our garage doors showed up white with brown X’s on them and stayed that way for months! Ahhh… they looked HIDEOUS! SO GLAD to see them go black!!
