  3. I love how the photos of the house are coming together. The choices of colors for the exterior and the coastal colors for the interior are going to a beautiful addition to the area. Great job DIY!

  4. Mary this is really exciting. Selecting a master bedroom and kitchen cabinets color is really exciting. I love bedroom and kitchen cabinets texture which is prefect for every home. This designs are most beautiful and delightful this year and everyone want to be in their home.

  5. I've himmed and hawed over the front porch. Normally I like an open porch, but if the bugs are as bad as everyone says they are, then a screened porch seems the way to go. Are the mosquitos really bad on the coast? I just assumed they were not because of the salt water.

  6. Evrything is starting to fall into place and is starting to look real good.
    I am starting to feel like I am already the winner and that I am ready to move in, but I think that everyone is thinking the same thing and I don't blame them , not one bit.
