Beginning the Dining Room Transformation!

Beginning the Dining Room Transformation!

Hi friends!  I hope you’re all having a great week so far.  We have been loving the sunshine that comes with Julys in Virginia.  I have some cool progress on painting the dining room to share! If you’ll recall, this is what the dining room was like when we bought the house: One of the...
Retaining Wall! - Part 4

Retaining Wall! – Part 4

Alright, the time has come to share the retaining wall in all its glory! Here are some progress pictures that we snapped as the masons were working. I feel like it really is a work of art.  The two men took their time and their attention to detail shows. The new wall they’re working on...
Retaining Wall! - Part 3

Retaining Wall! – Part 3

CHECK. OUT. THIS. WALL. Y’ALL. I love love love love how this ended up!!!  It protects my beloved boxwoods from eroding, it delineates the yard from the gravel so we won’t have mulch or grass spilling into the driveway, and it really adds some class (I think) to the whole driveway and therefore property overall.  Something...

Retaining Wall! – Part 2

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re all having a good week.  Charlottesville weather has been so absurd lately… the weather forecast changes minute by minute on sunshine/ thunderstorms/ sprinkles.  We’re getting a LOT of thunderstorms in our neck of the woods and it’s been far from fun, but I know we had a dry winter and...
Moving Boxwoods + Gravel Down!

Moving Boxwoods + Gravel Down!

Oh my goodness y’all look at this– the boxwoods have been moved, and now there is an EXIT to the circular driveway! Just to recap: here is the before layout and the after:   SO COOL!  The shape is actually taking place!  We weren’t home when the crew actually picked up and moved the boxwoods...
Mud Pit-- I Mean-- Driveway Update

Mud Pit– I Mean– Driveway Update

CHECK THIS OUT.  It’s our new mud pit!  (If you squint your eyes and use your imagination, you can see that it’s actually a new driveway in disguise.) It loops through the brick columns same as the old driveway did, but it instantly goes uphill.  We didn’t remove any of the old asphalt from the...
The Driveway It Is A Changin

The Driveway It Is A Changin

Progress report on the driveway! First thing first was to take up the brick walkway from the front porch to David’s office. Then after that the bricks were up, the heavy duty equipment moved in. And then… Something like 13 huge dumptruck loads of dirt got delivered to our driveway as you can start to...
Kids Bathroom Update :)

Kids Bathroom Update :)

We are in preparation for Baby #2 (although let’s be honest, poor second babies don’t get nearly the attention of first babies, even in utero) and I thought I’d take a few minutes to share how the kids’ bathroom is coming along! First of all– we have a cool new heated floor installed.  Just like...
Almost Done in the Hallway

Almost Done in the Hallway

I have some updates to the hallway to share!  It’s practically done except for the little finishing touches (hardware, paint, etc.) now! First of all, we installed lighting underneath the cupboards.  This way we can 1) fold laundry in the dark, and 2) have a sort of ‘night light’ effect if we need to light...
Tiling the Master Bathroom

Tiling the Master Bathroom

We have more progress to share with our renovations! David and I opted to install in the master bathroom because the room only has one air vent for the high velocity heating, and also… if we’re only going to have one bathroom for the rest of our lives, might as well make it fancy!  🙂...
New Laundry in Upstairs Hallway

New Laundry in Upstairs Hallway

I have more renovation progress to share with y’all! First of all– the floors in the hallway were installed! They are actually the original floorboards that were in that space before but our contractor carefully took them out and sanded them down before re-installing them. Gorgeous, aren’t they?  I love that they are “original” to the...
Carving Out the Kids' Bathroom

Carving Out the Kids’ Bathroom

In addition to making walls in the master bathroom, the crew has made a lot of progress in a new bathroom we’re tucking in the back corner of the house across from Evie’s room. The idea behind the architectural drawings is that one day we’re going to build an addition coming off the right side...
