Toscana - Soon to be our New Home

(Just a little free advertisement 
Toscana from Flagship Builders :)
You may remember from way back when (here) -

our townhouse looked something like this -





And . . . now for a little update! (As of last week at least, I already need to get new photos of THIS week - it changes soooooo fast!!  :)



townhouse 1
(the front on the left and the back on the right, the back is a little later when the whole building has the primary coat in preparation for the stucco applied.  I love the arched doorways, one of my favorites :) The finished square footage is about 2000 sq. feet with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and an office.  It's three stories with the entry, office and garage on the first level.  The kitchen, laundry, butler pantry, bath and living room on the 2nd floor.  Finally three bedrooms and two baths on the top floor.)

 We're about three weeks from our finish date, and so far everything is about on schedule. It's so much fun to see things taking shape and all our ideas coming to life through the amazing contractors we've been able to work with.

It's been busy, we met with the finish carpenter, we met with the carpet guys, we met with the hardwood floor guys, we met with the appliance center, we met with the paint store, and the painter, the butcher, the baker the candlestick maker . . . (well maybe not the candlestick maker . . . )

 From this -

(early work on the kitchen - it is now being painted - hurray!)


 To this -

(lots of exposed beams - another one of my favorites, here they are staining the beams to match the hardwood floors, they actually look so lovely!)

  townhouse 2
(Grandbaby cakes Jonathan napping with Grandpa while touring the new place - and Kelsie trying to imagine the hot tub with water in it :)

(a look at the complex . . . it's coming along also - the pool and clubhouse are scheduled to open in just a few weeks.)



DSC08477
(all in all, everyone is really happy with the progress (except maybe Conan, who is still unsure about this place we keep visiting).



We picked this little neighborhood because we have been here . .


There's so much that we like about our new little place - 
it's little!  We love the warm wood, the tile, the beams,
the arches, the tile roof . . .
ah . . . yes . . . I think this is going to work :)



I like to think we might be able to recreate it just in the smallest way . . .
So . . . maybe it's time to start packing things up . . .
again . . .
