surfaces, change list, and rain

after i left to singapore and back to india for work, jed got to handle the details for our change list in my absence. he did a great job of handling things that don't bother him, but normally keep me up at night, and so we picked out a couple modifications that will make a HUGE difference for us. they cost us dearly, but will be well worth it once jed grills under his added "grillin' light" and we have the entry EXACTLY as i want it. note: capitalization means my needs were subtle, yet expionsive.

we could have bought a hyundai or gotten instantly rich according to some nigerian bank loophole, but we opted to tweak a few things that make all the difference in the world to me. did i mention this is about me? well in case you forget, jed will be happy to clarify.

we chose white cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms and for the kitchen counertops, we got the color that's closest to coffe spills, which is very practical for us (see second image):

and for the bathrooms, we got a color closest to what we like:

the house is green, and the master bathroom tile is too:

as far as the house construction goes, there are foundation forms, and there is rain. the two don't mix. so we're in a holding pattern until the weather cooperates. another house of the same design is making real progress and we're very very excited about the finished product. in regard to timelines and closing dates they're something that people talk about, but i dont' really believe in, so until i actually see ours, this is what i think it looks like:
