Isn’t life crazy wonderful? I have been beyond busy with the sell of our home, moving into a temporary apartment, my two online stores and building a spec house completely by myself without my husband acting as my full-time partner. We have been in real estate since 1997 as agents, flipping homes and builders. He is doing so well as a Business Specialist with Wells Fargo, but I do miss being with him during the day. Last week I made the decision to place my stores on vacation for awhile. I quickly found out that I can’t manage two full-time careers at the same time. You usually can’t build during the winter months in the northwest, so maybe I can open my stores during that time of the year. I thought it would be fun to give a preliminary tour of the house I’m building in Twin Lakes Village. It’s a golf community in Rathdrum, Idaho full of amenities. Golf memberships, private lake front beach, boat launch, tennis courts and a swimming pool just to name a few. All included with the purchase of this home! How cool is that?The roof was just finished on Tuesday. The rough plumbing was installed and now the excavator will be coming in to prep for the concrete in the garage so all the rough-ins can get done. Then the more exciting things will happen, siding, painting, sheet rock inside, etc…Lots of good things are going to happen quickly now that will make some major changes. I just picked out all the cultured stone for the garage and two more columns on the front porch will be added. The columns will be boxed out 12″ x 12″ wrapped and trimmed with siding.
Enter into the living room with a grand fireplace. I know, it doesn’t look so grand yet…but it will!!!
Kitchen will be wrapped with white shaker style cabinets and granite counter top. You will also be seeing white subway tile and shiplap.The flex room leads to the master bedroom and to the backyard. There will be a full glass atrium door for lots of light. This room could be used as a mud room, butler’s pantry or overflow from the dining room for those grand parties!
The entire house is just 1476 sq. ft. but it’s going to be packed with gorgeous features. This is the master bathroom featuring a free standing tub and a 4 ft shower with floor to ceiling subway tile and frame-less glass shower door.That’s it for now but I’ll be back with more very soon!!! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend and enjoying the sunshine!
