Finishing Up the Construction of My Highland Home

Kens Kitchen in his Highland HomeWelcome back! This will be my final blog during the construction stage! My house has undergone a lot of changes since our last posting and is now almost complete.

In my floor plan the kitchen is the center of the home. Since it is so visible, that was one of our biggest hot button areas that we wanted to design perfectly. At the Personal Selection Studio we were able to upgrade our cabinets to the 36? Birch Cabinets with the Twilight stain. They are dramatic and really a showpiece with the granite countertops. We also added crown molding above and below the cabinets to add a little more detail to the room. To match the stainless steel kitchen appliances we are getting installed, we chose stainless steel door hardware on the cabinets. We spent a lot of time designing the kitchen and matching our cabinets and counters to make sure we picked the right selections. The ladies at the Personal Selection Studio were a big help! 

Mohawk Flooring in a Florida New Home from Highland HomesMy home has now received all the flooring and wall tile in the bathrooms.  The driveway was poured as well, and the decorative stone installed on the front of the house. All that remains to be completed is delivery of the appliances, landscaping and a few minor touch-up items before we can do our walk throughs, close, and move into our new home! We can’t wait!

I’m going to write one more blog for you in a few weeks that will detail how everything goes with walkthroughs and closing once the home is complete.
