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.
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.
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
The main level, half bathroom has been torn out since before the floors went in. We’ve gone without a bathroom on the main level for months.

So, we put a final stop date for renovating the new house as Sunday, April 16. That leaves us with 2 full weeks to actually move. And, really, the hard stop for actual house renovations was Saturday, April 15 … because on Sunday we needed to clean – ALL DAY. So, this week, we chugged … More Mad Rush.
I took vacation on Monday & Tuesday this week. I used it to work on the house. I tried to warn you that this wasn’t a real vacation (see that question mark in the title???). I continued our uber productive weekend right into the start of this week. On Monday, I primed the hallway and … More Vacation?
That’s what happened this past weekend. We were so productive. It was our biggest weekend yet. There’s not much to say about this stuff. We went in and just worked. Saturday, we literally worked all day. We got to the house around 10am – took a quick break for lunch and to run to the … More Productivity.
The paint is amazing. I know I said that in the last post. But now, you guys, we took all the paper off of the floors in the family room. It looks so amazing. Exactly what we were going for. So, here’s some background. When I started painting the family room, Patrick & I stood … More The Paint. [& more.]
I’ve been slacking on the updating here. But, we’ve been getting things done at the house. So, it’s fair. The flooring guy came back to fix the shoe. Mostly it looks good. Some of it I’m going to have to just fix myself. And, we’re not sure what he did (because he certainly did NOT … More Priming and Painting
