Building Our Home: We Have Floors!

*This post contains affiliate links*

Happy December! I’m coming at you with a quick house update since it has been kind of a while since I’ve talked about it! If you haven’t read this post, then we are building our first home from scratch, and it has been really exciting. I also am so excited to share everything we have learned from building our home! The good news is, we have floors!

What’s Next?

While I write this, they are still working so who knows what is up right now! Our floors are completely in, and we are waiting on the stain to be put on so we can see the final product. It is a classic gray stain on white oak flooring so it will be a little bit darker, but it also is not going to be super dark.

As for the walls, they are all some type of white (which I’m happy about, Will, not so much!). Our doors and cabinets are sitting in the garage waiting to be installed so that is something I am really looking forward to! I have been so excited about when we started building our home is the tiles and countertops! Let’s all hope they end up going together.

A few things I’m loving…

  • I’m kind of obsessed with this adorable teacup set. Not only are the styles really cute, but they will match our house really well.
  • I think everyone on Earth has at least one of these mirrors, but they really are gorgeous. I could totally see one above our console table in the entryway!
  • Every single one of these bathmats is gorgeous, excuse me while I measure how many I need in each room.
  • I never thought a day would come where I stress out about rugs, but it has finally happened. I’m hoping that I can fit this rug into any room in the house.

      It really does, if we hadn’t based everything around the stained floor, I totally would have left it that color!

      Thanks so much Avalon! I had a few brief moments where I was wondering if we should stain it at all!

    Hi Ashlee, oh I absolutely love the hardwood floor you picked. It looks so clean and gives me an scandinavian vibe. Can´t wait to see the end result and how you will decorate the room.

    Have a great day,
