Tuesday Tidbits

Another week and another Tuesday Tidbits. We were hoping to take advantage of the summer-like weather and bust open the office door on to the new patio. However, we decided to let the concrete take a full week to cure (knowing that we’ll be knocking bricks around with a sledge hammer). So, even though our

I’m so excited for this Tuesday Tidbits because we have major progress on the exterior! We have been saying since the start that we would re-open the original doorway on the west side of the house. It was bricked over decades ago, but originally had a third porch. We debated back and forth and decided

This Tuesday Tidbits is just a little bit better because fall has officially arrived and I am SO HAPPY about it!!! I still need to decorate the front porch, but I’ve placed just a couple of items around over the last week or so. I’ll do some larger decor items once we get closer to

Before I update you on the house for this Tuesday Tidbits, it is impossible to not comment on the date (9/11). Both Trent and I have had the opportunity to visit the 9/11 Memorial multiple times in NYC. If you have never been, I recommend it adding it to your list. It’s an all encompassing

Tuesday Tidbits and a Giveaway!

As you can tell from the above pic, we are all STILL enjoying the clean windows. Even the morning sunrise from our master bathroom has a pretty view!

This week’s Tuesday Tidbits is all about the windows! The windows were a major feature that drew us to this home. The arches, the size, the number of windows…you get the idea. And while we have always loved them, they have basically been a huge thorn in our sides since we started this project. Shockingly,

For this Tuesday Tidbits I thought it might be interesting to show you some of our house features up close and personal. The kitchen seems to be the obvious place to start since it’s where most people spend the largest amount of time and money. Our home is no different than any other and we

Tuesday Tidbits is here again and after a few months, I’m finally making my way through the last of the basement storage containers. Needless to say, I’ve made several trips to Goodwill. The good news is that things are finally just about organized around here. We are still trying to figure out exactly what we
