Happy New Year’s Eve!

Happy New Year’s Eve, friends! 2017 was a good year and we are certain that 2018 will be even better! We like to spend just a little time on NYE looking back at the year we are getting ready to leave behind. We’ll never say that it was all perfect (oh heavens…it was definitely not

Then and Now

As we near the end of the year, we like to look back and see how far we have come. ¬†**If you are in the middle of a renovation/home project of your own, just look at your before photos…it will help push you through to the end.** So while these still are not true “before

Tuesday Tidbits

We have once again had another busy week for our Tuesday Tidbits (we really sound like a broken record). While our projects are a little less major than at the start of the project, they are finishes. Which means they take 10x’s as long as far larger projects even though they look like they should

Tuesday Tidbits

Friends, this Tuesday Tidbits is extra special! The above photo was sent to us by the Pears family recently and it is uh-mazing. The photo is pre-fire (which we know occurred sometime in the 1920’s). This shows the home in her full glory. Trent and I sat and looked at this photo forever. The house

Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites

We have a few more favorites to share with you this gorgeous Friday morning! While the plan is to do the breezeway floor last (like after we move in), I just couldn’t help myself and went ahead with another purchase. The hexagon and octagon tiles in the bathroom have turned out so nice we decided

Tuesday Tidbits

Well, it’s time for another Tuesday Tidbits and once again (shock…I know) we have been busy. Everyone has heard the saying “if you want to test your marriage, build a house.” And as a Realtor, I know this to be true. I’ve had many clients build and it is tough work! However, I would say

Tuesday Tidbits

This next Monday is Halloween and (more importantly) Trick-or-Treat time for Buchanan, MI. Buchanan kiddos: We. Are. Ready.¬†Okay….actually, we’re not really ready at all. We have candy. But since we don’t have a completed house we will be lacking many things like exterior lighting, cute costumes or pretty porch decor and furniture. We promise to
