Helllooo pals. It’s been awhile so I thought I’d hop on my computer (since 8 hours of corporate life at a desk isn’t enough) and give an update on how things are going with the house. But first let’s talk Velvet Brumby.
When I started this blog I knew that I wanted to have a little bit of fashion, a little bit of home inspo and a whole lotta non-professional. I spend so much of my day in a professional setting so it’s so nice to have this site to sort of decompress from that part of my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m blessed to have the career that I do but sometimes I thirst to let my creativity flow. That being said, I’ve been drumming up various ideas in order to make my insta page better. I’m doing an NFR ticket 5K giveaway (wooooohooo-please enter if you haven’t already) and I’m working on putting together an NFR styled shoot with some AMAZING boutiques and makers. I cannot wait to share more on that. Anyways, let’s move on to the house update.
I’ve spent the last few months day dreaming about our new casa in Northeast Oklahoma. I’m kind of a weird person. Like I know which frekin bedskirts are going on every bed in my house and what toothbrush holders are going in the bathrooms. I’m honestly such a planner and I wish sometimes I could just be chill but nope I’m pretty much a full fledged crazy who coordinates bath towels with rugs when she doesn’t even have cabinets in her house BUTTTT spare me the judgement.
Our house is currently dried in and we are thinking that it will be ready to move in by the end of October or beginning of November. This week the electrician, plumber and HVAC dude are doing their thing. Hopefully the boring part gets over with soon because I’m so ready to see paint on the walls, floors covered in wood and cabinets installed. This has been a year long process of selling our home, moving and now waiting for our new home to be complete.
I wanted to give a few sneak peaks of what we have going on over in OklaHOMEa. I so hope to continue to share more of this process. Once we move in and everything is in it’s place, I will be sure to post links and updated photos of every room.
Here was day 1 of construction. At this point all we had done was brush hog and clean up some trees.
They put re-bar down to pour the pad.
They framed in like a week! So fast.
The builder messed up the roof pitch so we had to re-do the front porch pitch. It’s bigger than this photo shows, now.
This was after the pitch was fixed and the dormers were started on the roof.
This is where we are now 🙂
It has been roughly 5.5 weeks since construction started.
Here is a picture of part of our entry way that we are doing. Gus and his dad welded this massive thing together.
This is only about 1/3 finished. This will have white brick pillars on the corner posts and there will be timbers on the 2 sets of horizontal pipe. It’ll also get painted and a handy dandy sign will be hung. Still looking for the perfect sign.
If you’ve made it this far- thanks for following along. You’re a TRUE friend and I love you. Even if I don’t know you.
Stay tuned for more from the #CroochCasa.
