Idle Time

Pre-construction meeting is today, from what I see from other people its pretty uneventful, so onto other news...

The time between signing the contract and closing is so nerve racking and exciting and boring and confusing. I'm going crazy thinking of things I want to buy, styles, paint colors...We've found a great tool that lets you layout your house in 3d placing furniture, etc for FREE and its online too, so nothing to buy and nothing to install. It takes a bit to get used to but once you do its really fun.

Here is what we've come up with so far (1st floor), they have a wide selection of furniture items to drop in your design. You wont find everything you need but this is definitely a great layout tool to come up with ideas, colors, visualize spacing, etc. And based off of this, its a lot easier to make your shopping list which Ill start posting soon -- Ericka

  3. I use a similar free tool (floorplanner.com) which is the same concept. It came in very handy before the Guardian meeting because we were able to map out where outlets would need to before the actual meeting. Helped a lot.

    1. Hey G, checked out floorplanner.com, they definitely have more furniture and things you can use, can you paint the walls? I looked at the gallery and couldnt find any custom wall colors. For us girls accent walls are very important :) Ericka

  6. Thanks for the link-I had downloaded a similar app for my ipad, but it's not 3D. That seems to make a big difference. Thanks!!
