Bye -Bye Nice Sales Lady

We got a phone call from a woman two days ago from our sales office.  Apparently, our super sweet saleswoman we were working with had a "traumatic life experience" recently, and is taking a leave of absence from the company.  We were kinda shocked.  We really liked her and felt comfortable with her.  We are hoping that she will recover from whatever she is dealing with (we were assured that she is okay physically) and can come back to work soon.
What left us feeling really uncomfortable was the new saleswoman telling us that she hoped that our previous sales lady didn't make us promises or told us something that was incorrect as far as what the company could or couldn't offer.  She said that she was finding this to be true with some of the other customers.  I will be really mad if we were told something, only to find out the company will not stand by what we were originally told.
Our appointment to pick cabinets and make some other finalizations was to be on the 15th.  That did not work for the new saleswoman, so we had to move that date up to 12th (Monday).  So I'm happy about that.
We went to the model home in our area and snapped some pics.
 I am in love with this morning room!
Another view of the kitchen from the morning room.  

I am so glad that I opted for the double oven.  I am also relieved to know that the side cabinets to the fridge are super deep, since I am forgoing a pantry.
 I love the contrast of the floor and the clean look of the cabinets.

Backsplash.  I really want this exact kitchen.  Don't know if I'll get it, but mine will be close to it!

I really wanted to see the under-cabinet lighting fixture.  I am thinking I will install these myself.  Hopefully they won't be too difficult.

Is this marble?  I will ask Monday.

I want to recreate, as closely as possible, the look of this kitchen and morning room, minus the blue wall.  Mine will be a lovely shade of orange :-)


  1. Did you ever figure out what those kitchen countertops are in the model? I love those and we picked the same cabinets for our home. I would really like something similar to what is shown in the model you looked at. Is it marble? I didn't think they offered marble...

    1. I think this is sandstone. Our sales lady couldn't give us a definitive answer on this. I figured it was one of those "features" they put in the model that become unattainable to the home builder- you and I! Lol! And no, they don't offer marble. Hope this helps!

  2. Natasha, is this model in Loudon County? I think we visited too when we were considering building in Warrenton. Is that were you moved?

    1. Katie,
      Yes, we are in Warrenton (actually New Baltimore, but considered Warrenton) and this is the model in Loudon :-) We love this subdivision. That was one of the main reasons we chose this location.

    2. Then I know what subdivision you are in and we actually almost went there ourselves. It is a great community! We have several couple friends from our church that live there.
