Weekly House Update: Week 20

So I skipped last week’s update. Things have been busy:) It’s hard to write a blog post when you are constantly doing the work you need to blog about. It’s all coming along though. The brick finally started this week and we love it.

This may not sound like the typical time to do this, but we had the countertop measurers come out and they asked for them to be in place. It was exciting to see some shiny new appliances. I can.not.wait to cook in this kitchen. It will be such an upgrade from our tiny apartment kitchen we’ve been living with for a year.
