Not my kitchen - but same layout, appliances and island:
Current granite choice (Dakota Mahogany) and cabs (maple spice - may go lighter):
A few shots of the neighborhood:
Fancy houses that will hopefully make my place more valuable :)
Nice pool that will likely be swimming with kids (no pun intended... well kinda... kinda it was intended...)
Yes - HOA fees are high. Nuff said.
Cool covered bridge on one side of the hood.
Proposed pedestrian retail at front of development. A few years off and still up in the air but my door would be about 2 blocks to the right from here. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
Flooring - going w/ laminate due to my overweight pup (60lb) and general durability. I'm torn between proper HW but I'm going to try and get the most realistic laminate I can find. Anyone know much about the options I can expect (I have yet to go to the showroom)?
Upgraded carpet and pads on stairs and top two floors (not sure what level but I think it's one below the top level - will figure out in showroom).
Granite in kitchen w/ island
Gas range (can't wait for this)
Recessed lighting in kitchen (7 cans)
3 fan rough ins (LR, and both bedrooms)
Surround pre-wire in living room (no speakers, just wiring)
Data ports and cable in both bedrooms (not sure what's standard yet)
Comfort height toilets in all bathrooms (I'm tall - 6'3" and so are my friends)
Tall man vanities in bathrooms (this is key)
Double vanity in master
Granite (dark) in master and 3rd floor bathroom
full length tile walk-in double shower in master
Fiberglass tub with tile surround in 3rd floor
Tile floors in all bathrooms (12")
Garage door opener (I wanted to do this myself - but I know w/ everything going on it will be easier just to have them do it)
+$2500 I added in to the price for things I knew I would add later (wiring, surround, possible cab upgrades, etc) I can take out what ever I don't use but most of this is already spent in my head :\
That's all I can think of for now - I'll update as I lock things in. I have yet to meet w/ wiring and showroom so I'm sure I'll make changes.
