A Stroll Down Memory Lane- Staircase

Let’s take another stroll down memory lane and check out where we were on our house building process 3 years ago…

3 Years Ago This Week: 

Our house started to look like a house!

Do you like our plywood shoved in the patio door area to help meet code?  Classy.  And looking at the ladder up 3 stories is giving me a panic attack…I, obviously, was not involved in the roofing process.

Ike and I were enjoying the view out the guest room window.  He definitely loved going to check out the house progress…

The circular staircase was built…

I was so in love with these stairs (still am).  If they had cheeks, I would have squeezed them.

When designing our house, I wanted it to have some unique architectural elements..no cookie cutter contractor house here.  The problem with “unique” is that “unique” usually means expensive…which we really didn’t have the budget for.  These stairs were definitely more expensive than a traditional staircase but they were worth every penny. I just had to do away with my secret passage that I wanted to add.  Darn it…but seriously, how cool would a secret passage be?  I’m still trying to figure out how to add one now….

There you have it.  Our house 3 years ago this week!

And just for fun, if money was no object what “unique” thing would you add to your house?

  Along with a secret passage, I think a slide would be pretty sweet.  And how about an indoor pool just for fun?!
