Designing my Dream Home

My house project is getting closer to the starting line.  The repairs have been categorized and priced.  I picked my colors, planned the layout of my kitchen and bathroom and I have bids in from general contractors and sub contractors.  I am getting really excited.

The main color in the house is going to be Homestead Resort Tea Room Cream (which is a lot more yellow and less pink than on the monitor).  The kitchen is going to be Homestead Resort Olive (which is actually a green and not grey).  The bathroom is going to be Tranquil Bay (which is actually a light blue-green and also not grey).  The girls room will be Purple Hills (which is surprisingly close to actual color). The boys room will be La Fonda Sombrero (which is more orange and less pink).  The master bedroom is staying Homestead Resort Tea Room Cream for now and later I will add some artistic detailing. 

Total cost is looking like $12,000-$14,000 which is perfect!  I have a few more contractors looking at the house today and I hope that they give me some god estimates, and quick.  I am hoping to have them in to the lender by Thursday before I leave to Kansas for a week to visit my sister and brother-in-law and have some fun 4th of July fireworks!  I will also get to meet quite a few people I used to play World of Warcraft with for five years. 

I will check in with you all later.
