Q & A

It feels like it hasn’t been that long since our last Q&A, but we receive a lot of similar questions and try to keep up on the answers. Here are some of the more recent common ones. Question: When are you moving in? Answer: We truly have no idea! But we are hoping by the

Many apologies for the later than usual Tuesday Tidbits post today! If you follow along, you know that this past Sunday was the New York City Marathon. I ran for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and had a wonderful time. As I mentioned last week, Trent stayed home to keep things moving on the house

Time for another Tuesday Tidbits and it has been a busy week! While we don’t have a “deadline” to be into the house, we have deadline. The exterior will not be done until next spring/summer (I’ve accepted it and moved on). However, we believe the interior will be mostly done by the end of the

What’s In Your Toolbox?

Every once in a great while we do a slightly different style of blog post. Okay…to be clear, you guys know that I write these posts. It’s not really a “we” thing.  “We” actually do all the work on the house together. “We” have an equal say in all things pertaining to the house. But

Another week and So. Much. Progress. for this Tuesday Tidbits post! I’ll just get right into it, because there is a lot this week.

Tuesday Tidbits Part 1

We have so many updates this week that I am doing a two part Tuesday Tidbits. The second portion will be tomorrow (on Wednesday) …obviously not being on a Tuesday…but there is just too much! So, let’s get down to business: I have spent every spare minute of each day scraping, sanding, priming and painting

AHHHH….it has been another busy and productive week at our house! Lots of pics for this Tuesday Tidbits post to show some of our updates. Trent has been continuing to work on the bathrooms. I absolutely love the faucets we selected (9 months ago). On past projects, I haven’t been willing to splurge on items

Ahhh…another busy week at our house! This Tuesday Tidbits is full of updates that are (thankfully) a little more exciting. The original main level doors that we stripped, are now getting a coat of primer and just about ready for a couple coats of paint. I’m so excited to see them in place. They match

It has been another super busy week! Our Tuesday Tidbits could seriously have 100 photos and updates this week – but I won’t bore you. Plus, I think it would take me an entire day to sort and download them all. Here are the week’s highlights: Since Trent was able to build the 2 crazy

It’s time for another Tuesday Tidbits! We have been busy this week continuing to hang light fixtures. It feels like we are only half way through this particular project. But admittedly, the fixtures are enjoyable because of the instant change we can see. At the last minute, I realized there were a couple of corners
