Hi there. Guess what? It’s been 1 year since we bought this house. Yep, I know. One. Whole. Year. (+ 1 day because I waited until this morning to finish this post. 😊 ) I decided to hold off on the 1-year comparison post until after the holidays. I know, I know. It’s not exactly … More More happy little details.
So, continuing with the updates posts … here are some details we’ve checked off our list over the past few months. (Picture heavy post because the details are always the best part!) (“Past few months,” because some of this work was started and completed back in September/October … or just started back in October and … More It’s always in the details.
***I’m so far behind on updating this blog. Much this work was completed in September and October. We were on vacation for literally 2/3 of November, and then it was Thanksgiving. But, I’ve been hard at work and getting stuff done. I really want to see how far I can get by the 1-year mark, … More Interior Deck Work.
Seriously, it’s been so long … both since I’ve updated this blog … and since I’ve had anything to update it with. So, don’t fret … you haven’t missed anything. We haven’t really done any major renovations since the last update. But, just to get everything up to date, below is some stuff we’ve finished … More Been a while.
It’s amazing. We use it all the time. It is the best thing we’ve ever done during a renovation. It was worth all of the money to pay someone else to do it. The crew literally did everything. We didn’t do anything. They did excellent work. Have I mentioned that we LOVE it? I mean, … More The Deck.
Yay! So, the main level is now about, oh, 70% finished. At least 70% of the renovation work is finished … we still need to get some new furniture, hangs some pictures on the walls, and a bunch of other smaller stuff … details … but I think that this was the last of the … More Finished Foyer
Part 1: Keep Out. We bought new door knobs. Now, no one with a key from the previous owners can enter our house at will. (Took us long enough.) I bought new knobs WAY back in March … and when I tried to install them, well, they just didn’t go together. The screws were too … More Privacy.
This is another post that doesn’t warrant any excitement from the reader’s end. It’s mostly just a “this happened” post. The summer heat has stayed at bay (until recently). And, we have been so thankful – windows open and ceiling fans. We have a heat pump. It didn’t work. We had guys out here to … More Summer Heat.
This post is self-contained. It is not about finishing the basement or anything ooooh- or ahhhh-worthy. It’s about jack-hammering the floor of our basement to fix a slight water issue. Our basement has been waterproofed. A sump pump was installed. (Both before we bought it.) It all works really well. We got SO much rain … More The Basement.
While we haven’t gotten any more BIG projects or rooms finished yet, we have been chugging away at making the house more livable. We’re easing back into the big projects, I swear. I actually really want to get some stuff crossed off the ole’ To-Do list, like really bad. Plus, I just hate looking at … More Just an update.
