It’s been almost 3 weeks since the sod was installed in the center of the circle driveway, marking the completion of the entry way addition project!  It’s hard to believe it’s finally officially done!  Although there have been a lot of changes since we started the project last September, we think the addition of grass…

New Landscaping

We’re finally starting to make progress cleaning up the front yard from the new driveway and entry way addition last fall.  A few weeks ago, we had a tree service come in to remove the logs and grind out the stumps of the two oak trees that were taken down last fall in preparation for…

Last fall, as we were getting started on the entry way & driveway project, we had 2 large oak trees taken down in the front yard.  The tree service ground up all of the branches, but left the larger logs for us to cut up for fire wood.  Over the winter Chad and his dad…

The finishing touches were completed last week for the project we started last fall to re-pour a portion of our driveway and add a front porch and expanded entry way under the old porte cochere roof. Most of the construction had been completed by the end of January, but we had a short punch list…

Although we’re still waiting on a few finishing touches on the outside of the entry way addition, inside we’re starting to decorate the new space. A few weeks ago, we ordered a new Stickley Harvey Ellis Door Console table to go next to the front door and it was delivered today.  I’m really happy with…

Work on our entry way addition has sure taken longer than we originally thought … the plan was to complete the work sometime around Thanksgiving, but (as always) there were several delays that stretched things out longer than anticipated.  As of last weekend, though, the only things remaining are a couple of touch-ups to the…

I’ve definitely not done as good of a job of keeping up with the blog posts as work finishes up on our entry way addition … when we first started the project to expand the entry way area, I had great plans to post updates on the blog every day and take tons of pictures,…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update on the progress in the new entry way addition, so I figured it was time for some new pictures.  The tile floor was finished during the first week of December and progress has slowed significantly since then while we’ve waited for the interior doors and trim…

The tile installer came back today to finish the installation of our “vintage” mosaic tile floor in the entry way by grouting the tile he installed yesterday.  The floor still needs a good cleaning to get all the grout haze off of it, but we’re pretty happy with the way it looks.  For being a…

Entry Way Tile Progress

The tile installer was back today and started laying out the tile in the entry way and bathroom according to the design we put together a couple of months ago.  Only about 2/3 of the tile has been laid so far and none of it has been grouted, but we can start to see what…

Paint, Lights, & Tile!

Even with the short week last week, there have been a lot of changes in the new entry way space recently, so I figured it was time to post some more pictures! Early last week, the painters finished applying the primer and first finish coat of plant on all of the interior walls.  In the…

One of our goals for the entry way addition project was for the front door to become more prominent so that there would no longer be confusion about which door should be the main entry to the house.  Here’s an old picture of how the house looked before: Before we started work on the addition,…
