Tuesday Tidbits

This Tuesday Tidbits is a little different from the usual. Since we are preparing for drywall to start (within the next week…can I get an Amen?!), I thought it might be nice to take one final tour of the house as she has been for the past several months. The insulation was done this past week/weekend,

Friday Front Cover Funny

This Friday we wanted to share a little funny with you (and obviously, offer up a tongue twister for you to try all morning long). Those of you who are local know that Michiana Life (a local magazine) ran a story about our project for their Winter Edition of the magazine. The article was well

Another week, another Tuesday Tidbits. We are getting into the super exciting phase! Okay…all the phases are super exciting, but this one REALLY is. Insulation will be starting this week and in just a couple of week the drywall will be starting. Some days it feels like we just started and other days it feels

Happy 2017! We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and hope that you enjoyed your holiday as well. While we took a couple of days off from our day jobs, we did spend a lot of time at the house. So many small tasks were adding up on our list that we used this

Last Day Look Back

On this last day of 2016, I thought it might be fun to look back at the past year in photos. (I did my best to keep the pics in chronological order.) Since we purchased the Pears’ home on January 29, 2016, we can safely say that this year has been all about the house. Thank

It’s another Tuesday Tidbits and if you live in our area you know what this past week has been like. Lots of snow and crazy cold temps! I know many of you will hate me for saying this, but I LOVE it! Trent loves it too, but it just makes me insanely happy to see

If you follow along daily (on Instagram or Facebook) you already know that we completed plumbing…but here are the final pics. After we ran all the “pipes”, Trent hooked them all into the Manabloc PEX system.

This past week has been all about plumbing…and it’s almost totally done! The photo above is not plumbing we installed, but the remains of the basement bathroom from when we purchased the home. We pulled that bathroom out, but had all those drains professionally cleaned – just in case we ever need them. For now,

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving this past week! We did take the actual day off…but we spent all the extra time working on the house.  On Thanksgiving Eve, this is exactly what you would have seen if you walked past our windows. The name of the game has been plumbing (specifically drains) and

Another Tuesday and another week with mostly wonderful weather. We managed to get everything done on our exterior list that we had planned before winter! Can I get an Amen? The new window is totally done and we have even removed the outside scaffolding. The window is gorgeous, lets a ton of light into our
