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

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 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

Truthful Tuesday Tidbits

Another beautiful, HOT summer week…another Tuesday Tidbits! While we did have a holiday thrown right into the middle (Happy Birthday, America!) we did not get any downtime this week.

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

Welcome to another Tuesday Tidbits! Things are (finally) just starting to feel a little more like home around here. Don’t get me wrong: we still have a LOT to do…but certain corners are starting to feel very comfortable. Like this corner in the kitchen. Framed just right with the pic shows that this little corner

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
