    Kitchen soffit and wall removal

    We’ve been making headway with our kitchen remodel and are quickly approaching the chaos that is sure to come with a large remodel project.

  • The Backyard Shed: Update

    Rehanging Vintage Windows

    We are this close to calling the shed complete. A week after we first started framing the shed, I found out I was pregnant. Having already been 6 week pregnant, symptoms starting cropping up quickly, specifically morning sickness, which prevented me from being any help whatsoever. After the framing was completed, my husband tackled the […]

  • The First Holes

    Entry Coat Rack

    It’s official, our brand new addition has acquired its first set of wall holes. There’s something about the new drywall factor that made it so hard to finally drill into it. But alas, our coats and bags needed somewhere to hang. Our entryway now looks a bit more filled out than it did before. I […]
