A work in progress...




It has been almost a year since we moved into our newly-built little house.  At that time, I was doing dishes in the bathroom sink...we still needed to install more flooring, several sinks, the Jotul stove, doors, and loads of trim, etc.  We are slowly getting there and making progress. For those who have asked, here are some pictures of where we are at today.

After entering the house through the mudroom, the walk-through pantry, closet, laundry area, and a powder room are through a doorway to the left.  The pantry space still needs a tile backsplash and shelving, and the closet door will hopefully be installed soon:


We're thinking of using this marble subway tile:


Just through the pocket door is the powder room:











{We haven't even started on any of the baseboard yet}:



I have some antique brackets and a shelf to be mounted over the laundry folding counter. Underneath I am able to store my laundry cart and drying rack.  The piece of marble was a Craigslist find:


Looking back through the pantry to the mudroom hall and into the kitchen.  Most all of the trim has been installed and painted in these two areas.  Mike added the plank walls using white oak planks leftover from the floors. The pocket door still needs its hardware:


The old flag belonged to my father-in-law and only has 48 stars, probably from his Navy days during WWII ?:


More to see next time--right now it's back to my paintbrush!

  1. It is beautiful. I love the crisp white and muted greys and I especially love your bench tops and cupboards. If we ever build again, that's what I'd have.

  4. Love everything about your place so far! The kitchen/mudroom/laundry excellent. The flooring is perfect. Can't wait to see more. Everything you have done is lovely. Oh I wish I had the money, property and house to build, these days it's tough.
    Thank you so much for sharing the work so far. ;)
