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
We’ve actually been working on some miscellaneous house projects over the summer, and I thought it was about time to catch the blog up. (I’ve also been working on finishing the basement … and it’s really close … but not quite completely finished … but that’s the next update, promise?) Inside the house – Main … More We did some stuff.
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.
Another update on the basement … which is still the only renovation being completed at our house, so you’ll be all caught up. The crew had a nice break from our house … and a bit of gorgeous February weather to work on someone else’s deck. 😊 It took the drywall finisher about 2 weeks … More The Basement, Part 3
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
A 1-year update post on our current renovation house. I’m not sure which way to put it. Because it seems like we’ve been working on this house for a looooong time and we’re just so used to living here now. But, it’s also ONLY been 1 year since we bought this house and started renovating … More Already? … or … That’s it?
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.
