Buying the view

SOLD! Its officially done, and its ours. We have already cut some smaller trees to make our laneway more accessible for us and contractors which really makes the laneway look 100 times better looking already. I have so many design ideas in my head it keeps me up at night! But most of all we bought this lot for the view. Its slightly farther then we hoped to be but the view and space was exactly what we wanted. Its 2.5 acres on the river with the back of the house mountain view. 
Now to clarify something i am learning quickly is when you live on the water, the water is automatically called the front, and the other side which would technically be the "front" since thats is where our front door would be is now the back. 
We have had a TON of progress and alot happening, we had excavation done, footings poured, drain tile ran, foundation walls poured, hydro pole installed with all underground wiring to our house (so much wiring!) , electrical panel installed in the basement so we can have hydro for framing and our trailer, our foundation has been backfilled. The framing is half done now too! We have floors, exterior and interior walls on the main floor with the second floor starting. Its been such a quick process so far, we have ordered our windows, kitchen cabinets and iv been trying to narrow down flooring options which is the hardest part. We know the hardwood we want but deciding on tile is much harder, there is so many options with shapes, colours and different shades of colours. I have been to numerous stores and none have the same thing which is good but then i like 1 tile at one store then the 2nd store i like another but i want to use just 1 store for all our flooring to have a stream line of contractors from the same place. Narrowing down tile and a staircase is my goal, if anyone has ideas send them my way! More updates coming soon, and a debate with the husband on a deck or no deck, i personally never really liked decks but he wants one...
