The trials and tribulations of renovating

It’s always something! We’ve been doing this long enough to know that nothing ever goes smoothly. We know that we will almost always be over budget on at least a few things and that things will almost always take longer than expected, but this is getting ridiculous! We’ve had a few issues with the quality … Continue reading

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated the blog on our progress. Progress has happened, but it just doesn’t “look” much different.   Hardwoods are in and finished – and gorgeous! We took down the back fence and put up a new one that won’t fall over on us. We were so grateful to … Continue reading

Ahh, shelves Yes my friends. That is a shelf. The shelf that I’ve been dreaming of to fit in the tiny space above our throne in the main bath.

When you gotta "go"

You might think that somebody (that would be me) has been on vacation or something. Nope. Just MIA from the blog. Enjoying summer. Being lazy. But guess what?! I finally showered in my own master bath shower yesterday! Yup, it means the bathroom project started over Labor Day last year is almost done! There are … Continue reading

Bathroom update
