Now to share the site progress at the This Old House North Shore Farmhouse! As we made our color decisions and started ordering product the site was moving ahead at a super fast pace. Below is a visit where I was shocked, with the house being shop built the clip in which they worked was so speedy. Just the previous site visit only exterior walls were in!
In very short order blueboard was up and trim was in. Here we were just getting to the point of selecting final paint colors.
Erik got those paint swatches up on the wall so we could review them on site. Below we were filming one of the episodes about color selection. Check out our episode 24 for more behind the scenes.
After talking about the Living Room and Dining Room colors we moved to the Foyer where I pitched a fun green that would pull that mossy color from the Living Room into the Foyer. I think I scared them a bit! (and by them I mean not only Bill and April but everyone!)
OK, paint colors selected. Check. Before I knew it trim was up and painted. Again, faster than I could imagine. I love this phase. You start to see the house coming together right before the mess and mayhem that is move in day.
Speaking of the mayhem of move in day – stuff is everywhere! It certainly looks worse before it gets better ……
We’re almost there – drapes are in and we’re gearing up for filming of the final reveal episode – so fun!
Lastly – ta-da! The final reveal! The room is together, our barn door is up and the home is finished. I love the barn door in the dining room, it adds some texture the room needs to warm it up and bring some more of the reclaimed feel into the space.
Stay tuned for more behind the scenes on other rooms!
