We have not picked out a lot of finishes and details, partly because the whole planning process took so long, we didn't want to get ahead of ourselves. And now things are sneaking up on us. The plumber needs to know what kind of shower faucets we're getting. Somebody needs to know what our front door will be. So, we end up in a rush to pick something out. I think the plumber mostly needs to know if we'll have one or two faucets, and that we won't have some crazy European plumbing fixture. No, we're mostly getting what's available at generic big box hardware store.
It's just fine. With the front and back door, however, it was hard to find something simple (without a lot of stained glass and paneling) that didn't cost an arm and a leg. And it's hard to convince people that we want wood, even for an exterior door. We're weird like that. It looks like we'll be getting something like this, but taller and with one piece of glass, not a sliding window:
And painted black (the idea is to match the windows and sliding doors). I didn't think we were high maintenance, but maybe we are! Generally, the idea is to make something interesting with pretty generic building materials. I think we can pull it off.
