We are waiting on permits now - so nothing new to report on the new home front. But I found some pictures of our flooring selection meeting - not the greatest pictures in the world, but we did the best we could with a 1 and 2 year old in tow.
Here is our cabinet (andover maple), laminate wood floor for kitchen/foyer/morning room, countertop (Formica called labrador granite), and carpet (a level II frieze-type) for the rest of the house. On the right side, you can kind of see the side of the cabinet in our master bathroom, and the vinyl we picked to go with it.
Here's a picture of the vinyl we picked for the other bathrooms/laundry room (a standard vinyl), and the carpet next to it is standard carpet for the basement.
We are looking at a mid-to-late October ground-breaking date, and a mid/late January or early February close. They said early February at first, but now may be talking about pushing us up (I'd like to get my hopes up but probably not a good idea!)
