We are in the final building stages of our new house.
This allows us to personalize some things that are just US.
After all, this is OUR dream home!
We plan to grow old there.
Yesterday, the cabinet and trim craftsman finished up.
There is a beam running the span of the great room.
This beam is constructed of the same material as our interior doors.
We asked the builder to allow us to distress it, prior to staining.
This is where
THINGS JUST GOT RANCHEY!
Flower Boy measured once, twice and three times.
He pulled out the branding iron.
We followed the grain of the wood,
Keeping the torch moving at all times.
Doing both sides of a 17 foot long 12 inch beam.
This process took all evening and well into the night.
We crawled into bed at 1:20am, this morning!
We LOVE the look!
Can't wait to see what it looks like stained!
