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! (Although I’m pretty sure the skylight windows are going to be filthy again within the week.) In completely unrelated news, the late summer morning sun hits our

Tuesday Tidbits

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

Tuesday Tidbits By The Numbers

As we are just about ready to wrap up (completely) the interior of the home, I thought some of the numbers might be interesting for you to know during this Tuesday Tidbits. Sheets of drywall: 340 Framing nails: 7,850 Square footage of hardwood floor: 2,900 Heating/cooling vents: 34 Outlets: 150 Light switches: 72 Kitchen cabinet

Tuesday Tidbits

It’s a gorgeous, sunny week with a holiday tossed right in the middle…pure perfection! This Tuesday Tidbits is a little more “behind the scenes.” We have been working on small, mundane tasks within the house but the truth is we need to get the door trim/casing finished to truly wrap things up. We have two

This Tuesday Tidbits is coming to you from a very hot and humid place. I love our four seasons (LOVE) but I’ll be the first to admit I’m already online shopping for fall house decor (shh….don’t tell Trent). When I left you last Tuesday, I was preparing to caulk the small fireplace and I’m happy

Tuesday Tidbits

We are back! Thank you for hanging around while we took some much needed time away from the ol’ blog. It was good to walk away from the project (and actually away from the house). Trent and I have different ideas on how to relax and this last week proves it perfectly. I took a

This Tuesday Tidbits may read a little more like a a complete non-tidbits post. We have had an extremely busy week and while we did some house projects (never pick the 90 degree day to edge your entire lawn…NEVER), I have not had a chance to document anything (sorry). We realized that we needed a

Tuesday Tidbits

Another Tuesday Tidbits and we managed to get a few more items crossed off our list on the inside. The weather has not been super cooperative (lots of rain), so the only exterior items we have worked on were small and fast. Such as adding flowers to the front containers (pictured above). We also installed
