Outdoor Space Remodel

We bought Bluebird four years ago.  I still pinch myself every time I drive into our driveway.  This is a house, but more importantly it's our forever home.  I love spending time here.  I love entertaining here.  I love having family and friends over. 
 We knew when we bought this house we wanted to change things.  We've done it in stages.  The first year we did all structural, paint (interior/exterior), carpet, roof, furnace, hot water tank and AC.  The second year we gutted our bathrooms.  For the past 18 months we've been planning and designing the MAJOR remodel. 
We bumped out our kitchen and upstairs 8 feet this spring.  The work started April 15th. 
 We created an outdoor living area.  All of it is covered. 
The outdoor living room has a vaulted ceiling with heaters and a fan.   
 We have a fireplace and television for Cougar Football Saturday! 
 Here was my inspiration for the look we were going for outside.
The fireplace has this 3 toned gray stone.  Huge chunky mantel Matt made from an old beam.  The television will hang above the mantel and at some point have barn doors to cover it. 
Here is the space coming back together.  You can see the upstairs and how we pushed out the two bedrooms out 8 feet like the kitchen. 

I searched high and low for outdoor seating.  I ended up purchasing these gray chairs from https://www.hayneedle.com/
 This will be our table from World Market. 
 Costco in my opinion had the best outdoor furniture selection and defiantly the price!  It's complete worth the "white glove" $150 service fee for them to set up and haul away the packaging.
I also bought matching side tables that match the coffee table from World Market. 
This Pottery Barn wooden flag is being hung on one side of the outdoor patio.  You will not see it until you are sitting outside.  I bought this years ago at a garage sale and knew someday I would hang it outside. 

The clock will go above the television.  I found it online from Overstock.
We needed a console table for the space.  I wanted something that looked a little more industrial.  I also found it online from Overstock.

 Here is the living area.  The deck has been stained since this last picture.  We can not wait to have this space done!  It's been a very long 6 months but it's going to be worth it when it's all done!
