You are not alone if you have found yourself wondering if we are REALLY going to do our renovation! I shared WAY back on August 4th that we were going to do an addition to our home (on this post). Everything always takes a bit longer than you wish it would. I have been sharing on Instagram Stories the progress, and a lot of progress has been made this week!!! We did decide on a contractor so that was a big update that I never shared. We had two bids, one was about 50k more than the other and we had worked with contractor that was less anyways, and really like him, he has done other things for ... Read More
My Major Kitchen and Bathroom Design Inspiration- Remodel
We are hopefully getting closer to our project getting started. But there are just a lot of steps involved in a remodel (especially if you live in a flood zone). We had our contractor come over and give us a bid, waiting on one more bid. We then have to submit the bids to the town for permits. Then hopefully they can start!!! We cannot wait to see workers here everyday expanding our kitchen and adding a master bathroom!!! I put together a design inspiration board so I personally can remember everything that has been on my wish list! It is hard to remember. Highly recommend going through ... Read More
We are Remodeling our Home! See our Design Plans….
We have decided to remodel our home with an add-on!! Eeeek!! Very exciting stuff around here. I have to admit I was nervous about going though with it.

One street front or back would be more ideal to remodel and do an add-on. But I disagree. We bought this home. The yard is not one you often find in this area. And the home itself is an emotional purchase. We loved a lot about this house more than others that made us emotionally buy it. And now ... Read More
Is shiplap a fad? Or here to stay?
I shared on THIS blog post that we are adding banquette seating to our kitchen. Unfortunately it has not been started....yet. I got a bid from our handy man who hung our track door, front door and installed wallpaper on Finn's ceiling. I also got a bid from a referral from someone who actually read my banquette seating post and his bid was three times the price of our handy mans bid! I got another bid just because our handy man is about a few more weeks out before he can start and I was getting anxious to get it going. But I can TOTALLY wait to save $1800. While I wait I have had time to ... Read More
