Today hubby and I decided we could start another business.

We Build Ugly Houses – a Limited Liability Corporation.

We quickly decided the our house will not win the curb appeal contest.  It looks pretty nice on paper – and when having it designed, we looked at a bunch of houses and decided we wanted clean lines, modern looking.  Oh well.  I think that having the lights on the house will definitely help – and next week rock is being delivered for the front yard….so landscaping has to help – right? Hmm….

Some of you may be wondering – yes, the pipes in our driveway will be cut down and a little metal lid will protect it.  We didn’t have much of a choice on that one.  Oh, and my husband has already determined that we could park 4 cars in our driveway…you know, for all those parties we have!  LOL  😉

Anyway, the inside is sure pretty!

Our cabinets are in – and we’re really close to finalizing the counter tops.  Choice #1 was too expensive.  I am crossing my fingers that choice #2 will be perfect.  He’s bringing a sample over to the house so we can see it in a larger amount with our cabinets, floors, etc.  We picked out the carpet and it’ll be installed next week (upstairs will be carpet.) The tile work is nearly finished, the gate to the back is being built (by Adam 🙂 ) And I think we MAY have found the trim we want to use on the floorboards.  (And the floor is very very dirty in this picture…probably like it will be most of the time!)

And just in case you didn’t know, I finally created a House Set on my Flickr account. (I LOVE Flickr, btw) so you can check there for more pictures that don’t make it onto the blog. Like our awesome laundry room. And I’m getting super fancy and even adding notes on some of the pictures. How cool is that?!?!? (You have to scroll over the picture to see the notes!)

Have a great night!

    It is not ugly!!! It is very modern looking, and Arizona-ish. Also, you didn’t have much choice for the color with your neighborhood’s rules. But I like it anyway.

    yes, you can only do so much with 8 shades of light tan!

    I don’t think the house is ugly at all. It’s simple…and I like it a lot!

    I think it looks great. Landscape will make a big difference. The inside is beautiful. Great job! Can’t wait to see the final shots (getting close).

    The house is not ugly! No way! And landscaping will improve the outside view. Some pretty purple flower bushes for instance… 🙂 The inside is coming along nicely. The cabinets are lovely! Very pretty, including the laundry room. What color will the upstairs carpet be? What did you decide about the stairs? Talk to you soon.
    Love you all.

    It looks awesome! I like clean lines and modern looking homes. It’s unique! The cabinets look great! I can’t wait to see the rest of the house! WHat are those pipes for??? Just curious.

    Sorry – your WBUH business will be a total flop because your house is not ugly! You’ll make it better as more is done, but it is good now. Trying to figure out when we can make the trip to AZ to see it?!
