Whenever the lights are installed in one of our Hawthorn projects, it’s my favorite day. The lighting in a house is so important and really makes it feel like a home. Over the last two weeks the electricians have been busy installing the lights and everyday is like Christmas. I’m particularly obsessed with the new front door lights. They are so pretty and I got butterflies in my stomach tonight when I drove up and saw them installed!
Our new kitchen counters got installed today! I went with a granite called Silver Grey which looks very similar to soapstone but with none of the maintenance issues. The kitchen looks huge and I love how much counter space we are going to have.
Paul and I spent the whole weekend prepping and painting. It was a lot of work but we made good progress. I’m lowering my expectations for how ‘done’ this house will be when we move in at the end of May. But counters are a good start!
