Foundation Is IN!

It's a blessing and a curse to live a mere five minutes away from the spot where your new home is being built. We get to go have a look at the progress any time we want, but when it's a rainy day or a weekend, we feel sort of empty inside because nothing changes. Not that we IN ANY WAY begrudge the crews their time off. It's just so EXCITING when stuff happens!

So, between the holiday and the rain we've had we're actually pleased and surprised by the progress. The site was graded, the foundation was dug, the concrete poured, and pilings are in, AND we even have some brick in place. We love that our foundation will have brick facing all the way around, such a great look!

There are also three other houses going up beside ours, so it's kind of like a race. We're currently in second place.

Yes, the dirt really IS that orange around here. Full of clay. Lots and lots of clay. Watch your step in that stuff when it's wet, it's slippery as all get out. It also LOVES little white dogs...

And here's how things looked a few days later...

We're hoping the front will be low enough that the building code won't require a porch railing, but it's too soon to tell.

Soon, we'll post the Elevation Drawings!

Quince Cottage believes a vanilla subdivision house can be transformed into a beautiful home that reflects the unique taste and personality of its owner. 
In our own place, rustic, opulent, and exotic rub shoulders. 
Think gilded mirror, an embroidered velvet robe from Uzbekistan, and a weathered plank wall. 
Stick around, and we'll not only show you what we mean, we'll also give you tips on creating your own special style.
