Tuesday Tidbits

It’s another Tuesday full of tidbits and it has been a very busy week! The main level hardwood has officially started (yay!!!) and we can’t wait for this to be complete…mainly so that we can sit an look at it. As I’ve mentioned before, we did solid hardwood and went with natural hickory. In the

Friday Favorites

It has been a few weeks since we have shared some of our Friday Favorites…and we have a couple more things to add to the favorite list! If you live in the Michiana area, you know that the general rule of thumb is to plant flowers after Mother’s Day. I decided this past Saturday to

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s Tuesday and time for our Tidbits! I mentioned last week that we have a lot of things happening in the next 3-4 weeks and many of you asked why we would put this type of timeline on ourselves. Admittedly, some of the rush is us simply wanting to get things done. However, most of

Guys, this Tuesday Tidbits is going to be short! The reason is that we are barely keeping our heads above water right now. We have learned in the past that projects hit a point where everything sort of needs to happen at once. It happens every time and yet we somehow seem to forget about

Ahhhhh….another Tuesday with some very random tidbits. We have been hard at work, but the finishing items always move so slow. We have almost all of the outlets and light switches installed.

Today’s Tuesday Tidbits is a little shorter than usual. It’s with good cause though, because tomorrow there will be another (much longer) blog post. While tomorrow’s post is a slightly different from our usual post, it will have loads of photos! This week we are still working on the tile and just starting to select

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s Tuesday and as usual we have another set of tidbits for you! The week has been busy and we tried to make the most of the awesome spring weather. We did take some time off for Easter (church and dinner with the family), but shame on me for not getting pic of either. The

Tuesday Tidbits

Ahhhh…another Tuesday means another Tidbits post and this one is super uneventful (I warned of boring times to come several weeks back). Things are tedious and time-suckers right now. The end product is always worth it, but boy oh boy, it’s tough to remember that when you’re smack in the middle! The master bathroom floor

Friday Favorites

The past week has been all about tile work for us and we have a few favorites that (if you happen to be doing any tile work yourself) could help make your life a little easier. We will NEVER dispute just how much work tile is. However, by doing it ourselves we have literally saved tens
