Color My World

We're in the midst of my favorite part of the building process -
We've been working regularly and chipping away at all the many rooms and coats that have to be done. It's finally starting to feel like the house has our own personal stamp on it, and we can really see the light at the end of the tunnel. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty left to do before we can move in, but that time is finally within reach.
Looking out through the living room windows. Keep in mind, the ceiling is going to be covered in rusty barn metal, so that's why we haven't painted it.
Standing in the living room, looking toward the dining room and kitchen. The wall color is a deep red orange. Lee is here painting the yellow. The two beams that are covered in plastic have never been opened - we don't have any idea what they look like! I guess we'll get to see them when we're finished painting.
Marilyn painting the kids' bathroom. She has been such a hard worker and is excellent at cutting in those crazy colors.
The kids' bathroom, yellow ceiling and light blue walls.
The guest bathroom. The lighting makes it difficult to see the colors clearly, but the ceiling is yellow and the walls are a light orange.
Sabrina's room. I never thought I would paint my girl's wall pink, but here it is being pink!
Ryder's room. We had to set up shop in there when it came time to paint in the laundry room. We will be painting some racing stripes around the wall.
The master bedroom, looking in from the living room.
The master bedroom.
The master bath. In this picture the colors look like the kids' bath but they are actually very different colors. The teal is the same as the bedroom ceiling and the bath ceiling is the same light green from the master bedroom.
The master closet. Dad was busy doing all the cut in work around the ceiling.
The laundry room.
The only room yet to be painted - the play room/craft room. Nick set it up as his clear coat room. He's working on clear coating the cabinets as they are completed. Here he's also been working on the closet shelves.
Ice was coming down while we were working today, so slipped out to take a few pictures.
The first time for us to have winter weather on our new house.
There are still a few coats left to be done on the walls, then we'll be painting trim and doors. Cabinets will be going in as they are finished and plumbing for sinks, toilets, etc. will come as that happens too. Things are coming together and our move won't be too far in the distance!
