Imhoff Homestead :: The Foundation + Frame

Wednesday, September 19, 2018
You know it starts becoming official once they start framing and the home begins to take shape.  It's crazy to me to think that in just a few short months [4 to be exact] we'll be living inside these walls and making new family memories.  I can't wait to walk the kids to school each morning, enjoying our backyard extra space for our puppies, and making warm home-made dinners in the new kitchen.  It seems like such "little stuff," but it's simply what I am craving right now.


When I see the framed walls like this it makes my head swirl with design ideas.  I literally have had trouble sleeping thinking about where things will "go," or what I still need to get for the home.  The list seems like it's never ending, and a lot of it is easily forgotten items ... curtain rods, shower rods, drawer liners, cabinet pulls.  All the non-furniture necessary stuff right?!  I won't lie though, it's extremely exciting to be able to do this for a second time.  Only in Texas can you keep building your dream home!  When building your home or going through a re-model, what are some of the items you forgot, or wish you would have done differently?  We are by no means building a custom home, and one of the items I wanted so badly was a laundry shoot.  Looks like the boys will be throwing their clothes down the stair case again [enter sad emoji here.]


The rounded part of the slab is our master bedroom.  It will be so nice to have some extra space in the room for a reading nook.  And the below photo will eventually be the kitchen.  Right from my kitchen window I'll see out to the street and get a great view of a pretty live oak tree.  I was REALLY worried about this window for a long time because there is a big post on that side of the home that I would have DIED if I was staring at while doing dishes!  Thank goodness it looks like we're in the clear!


And there you have it, a little sneak peek of what's to come.  I can't wait to share more about our build and the process itself.  So far it's been "ok."  It's honestly been really slow and we just heard word that our windows are on back-order ... so there is that.  BUT, I refuse to get lost in the day-to-day dilemmas and just set my eyes for our future.  Thanks for sharing this journey with me. Next week I'll be sharing some of our design selections!! Whoop Whoop!
