We finished painting our house!! My dad and husband had a three day weekend for labor day so we spent all three days priming, painting and trimming (painting edges) the house and it looks AMAZING!!! The photos change the colors a tiny bit because the lighting is difficult, but it's close so you'll get the idea. Let me know what you think please! Captions are below the photos and you can click on them to enlarge them. To see earlier posts about the house building here is the link (there are only about three other posts I think) http://myfarmerlife.blogspot.com/search/label/House%20Building

If you enlarge the picture and look closely at the left hand side of the wall you can see where I put a stained board up with some of my floor tiles so you can see what the finished look will be like. Sorry I forgot to get a close up. I might do that later. Also the vertical part of the ceiling is painted the same color as the walls. It looks like shadows in the photo, but it's actually the tan color. I love the contrast and how it breaks up the angles of the ceiling. :D

We picked a very neutral green with no yellow undertones because I'm going to be painting a full wall mural of a forest on the left wall (across from our bed so I can stare at it when I go to sleep hehe). The neutral base will allow me to use all sorts of greens and other colors in my mural. I can't wait to start working on it. Don't worry I will post pictures of my progress.

I like it, but I didn't actually use Behr to paint my house LOL! I just picked the colors from the Behr paint chips and they matched it with a different paint that we used that I totally forgot the name of just now. :) In the above picture on the right is where the shower will go. The little closet nook thing is where plumbing is and we will also be able to store some stuff in it. The toilet will be under the window.
So that's it! We are putting flooring in this coming weekend. :D I'm so excited. Then we will do baseboards which I'm staining myself. Then we have to put in interior doors. Hook up all electrical boxes, switches and lights. Then we have to put in the water heater, toilet, shower, sinks, etc. If I can afford it we will then put in all of the kitchen cabinets. At that point we should get to move in! I can't wait! This has been a LONG process since it's just me, dad and my husband building this thing. Literally the only thing my dad contracted out was the concrete foundation. We have done everything else on weekends and we're paying it as we go (didn't take out a loan) so that's part of the reason it's taking so long. I'll update again next weekend so you can see the floor. :)
