Building Our Very First Home {Part 10}

A lot has happened at our home. Things have been moving quickly and I’ve fallen a bit behind (sorry!), especially with the holidays. First major update, the exterior stone veneer is done! LocalLove805 - craftsman home - new constructionSecond update, doors are in! We picked the three panel doors to compliment the craftsman style, but also because some of our doors seem very narrow and tall so this style looked the best (we have taller than average doors, 8 ft).

We also picked our trim which you can see below – we kept it simple to match the craftsman style of our house as well (don’t worry, we’re painting it white to match;).building our very first home _ LocalLove805 _ Agoura Hills _ new construction _craftsmanbuilding our very first home _ LocalLove805 _ Agoura Hills _ new construction _craftsmanNot too much had happened on the main living area except we got our frosted glass pantry door in! I’ve always loved glass pantry doors. Other than that, Luke and I have been strategizing on how to do our fireplace mantel and hearth. It’s been quite the decision…LocalLove805 - new construction - building our very first homeLocalLove805 - new construction - building our very first homeNext major update is the tile. All the bathroom tile is getting put in which is exciting! Here’s a look at the upstairs secondary bathroom. Pretty basic, but we went with an olive green 10 inch subway tile and a simple white/grey tile floor.locallove805 - bathroom - tile - new construction Here’s the downstairs jack n’ jill bathroom. I love the floor tile we picked out.LocalLove805 - new construction - craftsman homeMy parents had some leftover mosaic tile from their bathroom remodel which was too pretty to pass up! So we decided to incorporate it in our jack n’ jill bathroom shower.LocalLove805 - new construction - craftsman homeLocalLove805 - jack n jill bath - mosaic tile - white subwayThe powder bath tile was quite the dilemma. I’ve always loved hexagon tile and patterns, so I knew from day 1 that we’d use the white and black hexagon tile in one of our bathrooms. The powder bath is one of the most used rooms in a home and it also gives you more freedom to be a bit more bold so I figured that was the best place for it.

You’d think I would have known what pattern I wanted, but surprisingly, it was much more difficult than I thought (er, maybe not so surprising;). Luke and I spent hours trying out various patterns. Here’s a look at some of them –LocalLove805 - powder bathroom - hexagon tile - new construction

And finally, the master bath…. of course, our favorite (I may be a bit biased though 😉LocalLove805 - master bathroom - wood tile - new constructionLocalLove805 - master bathroom - wood tile - new constructionLocalLove805 - master bathroom - wood tile - new constructionMore hexagon, my favorite!LocalLove805 - master bathroom - wood tile - new constructionLocalLove805 - master bathroom - wood tile - new constructionmaster bath - LocalLove805Can’t wait to share pictures of the finished tile work! And soon the cabinets and hardware will be in.

We’re hoping to be done in a couple months, so hopefully things keep moving quickly. Luke’s been working so hard so I can’t imagine it taking much longer than that. He’s been supervising the whole project and as you can see, it’s gone pretty well (especially considering this is our first home)!
