After the walls and roof decking were in place,
we were ready for our house to be completely in the "dry".
Our inspiration house had a metal roof.
We checked into it, but it was not in our budget.
We considered putting on a partial metal roof but we just couldn't get the right look.
We drove neighborhoods looking at various roofing but didn't find anything that we felt would work.
So, we decided on a composite shingle.
The color is charcoal...this would begin the accents of black throughout the interior and exterior.
The back view...
Siding and windows were next.
Those front windows are on their way to being "mock" French doors. I originally wanted the doors to be exactly like the inspiration house, but again, for budgetary reasons, we decided to modify the front.
(It will make more sense in a bit.)
Garage doors and trim were complete...
windows and doors were installed.
Mechanicals were put in place:
Did you see the flooring in the photo above?
We didn't want wood in the laundry room so we opted for brick.
I just love it!
We also added a bit to the master bedroom.
A few interior rooms were insulated...
while the majority of the insulation was blown in.
Are you still with me?
I know, that was a long post!
Sheetrock is next!
