April 2015 Lancaster Parade Home Update!

by Kuhrich on Tuesday, April 21, 2015

Hello Friends!  We’re getting close to the home stretch here and the excitement is really building as we see this home coming to life.  With that in mind, here is the April Parade-Home-In-Progress For the 2015 Lancaster Parade of Homes.

We’re about 2 months from the Parade of Homes and the weather is really cooperating with us:)   A picture is worth a thousand words, and we’ve got a ton of ’em here for you. We are finished with the siding and are really excited with how it looks along with the exterior stone.  Speaking of exterior stone, we’re about 90% done with that, as well.  We’ve written about adding depth and texture to the exterior of your home on previous blog posts and this is a nice example of how to achieve it.

We’re almost done with the faux painting at this point and the cabinetry is just beautiful and is just about done.  Wow…this really is sounding like the home stretch!

The wood floor is done, the tile showers are done and the James Hardie fiber-cement siding. Most people have vinyl siding, but this siding mimics the old clapboard wood siding…except that it lasts longer.  Hmm…might be a good idea to do a future blog post and go into more detail about it.

We hope you enjoy our continued updates and the pictures and we can’t wait for you to see the May pictures next month:)  Follow our progress on our Manheim Parade Home through June right here on our blog and on our Facebook page!
