But enough of that. After work I headed over to the house to check out the progress. The major update is that the fireplace was completed. I wasn't sure how I would feel about the stone fireplace but now that it is done....it looks awesome.

Other developments include the stained railings and some of the light fixtures. We were originally torn on whether to go with the brushed nickel or the rubbed bronze. I am glad we went with the nickel; I think it looks really sharp, especially in contrast to the espresso cabinets.
One thing about the Rome that many models lack is the open foyer. And while an open foyer is a waste of living space and costs more to heat/cool, it does look really nice. But the Rome makes up for it a little bit by having a very long entryway. And with the nickel fixtures and 2 piece-crown, the entry hall looks great. I cannot wait to see the flooring.
