Default Raw Land to Dream Home

Making some progress, septic is in, counter tops went in yesterday and we got the vault door in today. Also turned on the lights, power is no longer temporary. The soffit lights where a pain in the butt, but I think they look really good in the end. Coming along!

When I bought the land had a surveyor do the boundary survey. We staked out improvements ourselves but had to do a form survey on the house before we poured as per the bank

Haven't updated in a while. We got delayed for a few weeks because our master bathroom tile was stuck on a customs boat from Italy but it is here and installed now and we are moving forward! All the tile has been laid, plumbing is 90% finished out, appliances have arrived, wood floors going in this week and the bedrooms will get carpet next week. I'm thinking we will be moving in within 3 weeks! More then ready

Master Bathroom


Master closet




Kitchen





Mantle is up, still needs to be stained. From a tree I cut down on the property.



Appliances are here!!


Wood floors going in

1st I've heard of sealing the stone. I've only seen it sealed on natural stone for floors and such. Please elaborate on this.

I dont seal any if my stone, coutertops, or floors. Any good cleaner removes the sealer. Clean with bleach and you are good to go
