Detailed Selections - Pre Construction

We had our pre-construction meeting yesterday. We think we're going to love our PM! We asked if he could "accidentally" paint our front door black instead of the red and he told us he thinks he can make it happen! Woohoo!
We are on schedule to close around the last week of November/first week of December. Seems like forever from now, but I know it'll fly by

Here's a list of our selections:
*Venice Elevation B with partial brick
*walk out basement with glass slider
*morning room with the extra windows, gormet island
*stone FP with blower (we wanted brick but it wasn't an option!)
*service door in garage
*unfinished basement with 3 piece rough in
*owners bathroom w/soaking tub (alternate layout)
*extra outlet & cable wiring in bathroom (my hub is very excited about taking a bath while watching a movie!)
*extra outlet in kitchen island (thanks to the bloggers for this suggestion!)
*laundry room tub
*recessed lights in kitchen, family room, over FP, and master bedroom
*ceiling fans in each bedroom and morning room
*speaker wiring in kitchen and front room (we'll use it as an office)
*we got an upgraded panel of some sort that my hub wanted for wires
*laminate everywhere downstairs except for family room
*we upgraded the carpet padding and carpet upstairs and in family room (it's a light color)

Our color selections:
Siding: Dover White with black trim
Granite counters: Golden Garnet
Kitchen cabinets: Sq. Maple Cognac
Master bath: Mushroom  tiles (i think) with Maple Spice cabinets - we kept the white top
Spare: white cabinets, white top
Brick: Millwood
Stone FP: Old country smokey mountain


  1. Everything sounds so nice! Glad you got a likable PM too.

  2. Congrats!! Everything sounds lovely! I love all your selections! Especially your cabinets. I didn't upgrade mines. :(. I'm building a Venice also and we are scheduled to close around the same time (last week of November). I'll be posting my final selections soon after my last meeting with Guardian on Thursday. I look forward to following your blog! :)
