Thanks for the advice everyone, I've been visiting almost daliy up until last week.
I visited today and the hardwood is down, the kitchen is almost in place (cabinets/island), and the walls are painted.
Here's the trim on the house (Blue). Will probably look better if I get some blinds on that window that are frosted or light blue to match:
Here's a shot from inside the great room, looking into the kitchen (iphone pic):
Color is off (iphone), but this gives an idea of the island size:
I visited lazy boy and chose this microfiber reclining couch (comes with 2 chair recliners in same look) - it will go in a 2 story great room with white walls and offwhite carpet:
I'm looking for a 2 seater for the morning room (hardwood floor), saw this one on modernfurniture.com for $850:
Here's a red one from lazyboy ($600). It comes in the beige on the left, also. Good because it has a low back and doesn't block the view of the pond:
I'm planning on picking these up for my basement theater (5 Berkline 088s, that colour is discontinued now, there is a slightly darker/shiner orange/brown now):
