The Playroom

We completed a room! The playroom is the first room upstairs I can say is completely done! I don’t even have to go back and fix or change anything, believe it or not. This room (along with the entire upstairs)¬†went all the way down to studs. It was rewired, reinsulated, drywalled, new windows installed, theContinue reading “The Playroom”

Working on Multiple Rooms

I’ve been a little scatter brained when it comes to what I’m working on at the moment. My entire upstairs needs work before we can actually use the space. The upstairs consists of 4 bedrooms (one in which I’ve turned into the master closet), and the second floor bathroom. Each room is in varying statesContinue reading “Working on Multiple Rooms”

Christmas Porch

I will do a full porch makeover post once I’ve stained the floor boards and I’ve painted the posts. That may still be a few weeks away due to both weather and available time. The holidays are a bit busier than ever before. Ezra’s first birthday is this Christmas Eve and I do have plansContinue reading “Christmas Porch”

100-Year-Old Vintage Porch Makeover-Before

This porch is the most beautiful and ugliest part of this house. It was a huge selling feature for me when I purchased the home. It has definitely seen some renovation over the years. As you can see from one of the original pictures the previous homeowner brought to me a few months back, theContinue reading “100-Year-Old Vintage Porch Makeover-Before”

Cascade – House Update

The week before last, Josh took vacation in order to make some good progress on his house. He was able to get drywall up in the master, kitchen, hall and hall bath. Josh also hung the cabinets in the kitchen so that we could really feel out the layout. I have to say, his kitchenContinue reading “Cascade – House Update”

Vintage Dresser Vanity

Most of the upstairs bathroom is now complete. There are only a few small paint items left and some decor choices to decide on. With so many fun features in this bathroom like the 1921 clawfoot tub and the huge walk in tile shower, it’s hard to narrow down my favorite thing about this space.Continue reading “Vintage Dresser Vanity”

Refinishing Floors

There are only a few original items left in my home. The upstairs hardwoods are one of them. ¬†They are a red pine and were in questionable condition when I bought the house. The wood looked like it had been stained within an inch of its life and each room had a huge square inContinue reading “Refinishing Floors”

Master Bathroom-Part 1

A few pictures showing the progress in the upstairs bathroom. It is an onsuite for the master bedroom as well as the bathroom for the other 3 bedrooms upstairs. I’ve been in hurry up mode to get this project completed for my re-appraisal. I’m nearing the end and thought I’d organize some of the pictureContinue reading “Master Bathroom-Part 1”

Staycation Vacation

I am notorious for taking vacations and staying home. For the past three years I’ve used every day of relaxing time to work on my house. I try to do so much myself to first save money, but second learn and gain experience. I enjoy trying new things and putting myself to the test ofContinue reading “Staycation Vacation”

Upstairs Drywall

I’ve been waiting 2 and a half years for drywall upstairs! Two and a half years it has been since I’ve seen the second floor of my house actually look like a real space I can live in. The ceilings were dry walled as well. Window trim has begun and after that I’ll start onContinue reading “Upstairs Drywall”
