(Did you remember we even had one of those?) We’ve waited 2 years to do this. We probably should have done it sooner. We’ve been watching it sink for 2 years. And it wasn’t great when we moved in. We had a concrete patio in the backyard. It wasn’t nice. It’s been cracked and sinking … More Patio Demo
I’m back. (more to show!) Second day. Second update. (just look at me. 🦚) So, I started these bedrooms back in October 2018. And, I *almost* finished them in October 2018. Only, I ran out of trim. I mis-cut a piece and then didn’t have enough because I literally only bought EXACTLY the inches I needed. (I’d say … More The Guest Bedrooms (both of them!)
Hi guys. 👋 It’s been a while. Again. But, I’m back for a few updates this time. Yay! First, the basement. It’s finished. (Well, almost, but it’s been this finished for a year now, sooooooo, yeah.) Anyway, it’s amazing. We love it. It started off really well. It got a little rocky there … More The Finished (finished side of the) Basement
It’s the last post before I show you guys the renovated space … and it’s going to be a (kind-of) quick post. We’ve been working on finishing the space for weeks now. We had a really great contractor … until he wasn’t. We’re not sure exactly what happened. Everything was coming along just fine, very … More The Basement … it’s almost finished.
Just a quick update on the basement progress … which, for the time being is the only renovation going on in our house. The crew finished the framing and roughing in the plumbing and electrical (previous post, Part 1). Patrick & I spent a night installing speaker wires, HDMI cable, ethernet, etc … so that … More The Basement, Part 2
And, they’re back! The same crew that built our deck for us, is not finishing our basement. And it came together fast – maybe too fast. But, it’s coming along fast too – which is good. We’re ready to be done with these big projects. And this is basically the end of them. After this, … More The Basement, Part 1
This one is exciting for me. For several reasons. (1) The bathroom is finished. Completed. And it looks great! (2) I’ve literally been working on this room, off & on, for the entire past year. Literally. (3) Now, when you walk upstairs, you don’t see this eyesore of a half-demoed room welcoming you to our … More Full Bathroom, ✓
They say … the devil is in the details. But those details also make the whole project work. So, while tedious, and often times problematic, they are usually my favorite part. I think big picture, but when it’s time, I delve into the details and sometimes obsess over the littlest pieces. But, the secret? The … More And, a few more details.
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.
