Tuesday Tidbits Part 2

**If the house stuff is your only interest, keep scrolling down!** This Part 2 of Tuesday Tidbits is to fill you in on some personal stuff as well as house stuff. We have some busy days surrounding us right now…exciting but busy. Many of you have asked about the New York City Marathon that I

Friday Favorites

I can only assume that we are not the only ones who are really, really happy it is Friday (with either a long weekend or a Monday work/Tuesday off week ahead)! While I’m certain we will do something fun at some point, we view the long holiday weekend as a time to crank out some

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

My Job is Making Pigtails

Trent has run all the wiring and hooked up the main panel and the garage panel for our electric the past couple of weeks. It’s amazing (so many recessed lights, so many sconce lights, so many chandeliers, you get the idea)! Normally, this is where we stop until drywall is finished. I have had some

I’m Sorry. I’m Sorry. I’m So Sorry.

As the title conveys, I’m so sorry (actually a little mortified) for what you are about to witness. Since we are finally done with the interior framing, I thought it would be fun to do a VERY amateur video walk through. The key word is “thought”…it really wasn’t fun at all. Funny maybe, but not

Tuesday Tidbits

Another Tuesday, another update on the trivial stuff (tidbits) that makes up our week. We have finished up the coffered ceiling in the kitchen/dining room and we are starting on the ceiling for the living room. It will be different from the kitchen ceiling and here’s hoping it won’t take as much time. If we

Tuesday Tidbits

So, another week has come and gone and we are still framing! I think we’ll be framing the interior of this home until 2018 (kidding…I hope). Here are a few of the updated framing pics. It’s tough to capture this on a camera because, well, it’s framing. You sorta’ look through it. **It’s at this point I

Mystery Solved!

We are so happy that we have had a huge very insignificant mystery solved! As you know, this home was built in approximately 1865 (per the family). When we purchased the home, there was a tight, curvy staircase in the back of the house. The staircase had been turned (which we found out after we gutted
