While I don’t have much to show you about the house we are building in Utah because they haven’t broken ground quite yet, Gordon and I were in Utah last month picking out all the finishes for our house which I am so excited to share!
So, here are the basics:
We are building a home with a smaller, reputable builder in Northern Utah, slightly out in the country which is exactly where we like to be.
We initially wanted a big lot and were contracted to be on a big lot, but after being out there and seeing how the house would have to sit on said lot, and looking at the price differences between that one and all the other ones, we opted to go across the street to a lot that is nearly 0.4 acres which is about triple the lot we have now.
Our house is slightly smaller than what we have here in Oregon, except it will come with an unfinished basement, which I guess makes it larger if you include that square footage. The finished square footage will be a little less than what we have. Does that make sense?
It’s a two story home that looks kind of like a farmhouse on the exterior, but we are picking colors and finishes that are anything but.
In true Lauren style, most of our money was spent in the kitchen, adding the best appliances and extending the island to be as large as possible. I am mostly excited about the kitchen.
Once they break ground, it should be a 165 day build. We’re just waiting for the county to approve the plans and then its all systems go 🙂 We are hopeful we will be moved in before school starts in August.
Here are a few photos we took in the design center and then a few others of already built homes with the same floor plan we chose to give you an idea of what it will look like. We are so excited!
