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 heated floors 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...
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...
Creating a Master Bathroom

Creating a Master Bathroom

More renovation updates!!  Now I get to share how the master bathroom is coming together.   Just to remind you, below are the plans the architect drew up, and here is a link to my personal inspiration for what I want it to look like. So below is a picture taken from when you first enter...
Making New Rooms Upstairs

Making New Rooms Upstairs

More renovation progress to share!!   Here’s what the inside of the former doorway to the hallway looks like plastic-ed over. And as you can see from the pic below, we have new support beams for the new walls. Now HERE is where it gets super exciting: Above is a photograph taken from the master bathroom-to-be...
Renovation Progress

Renovation Progress

Thought I’d share some updates to the renovation! We had to put in all new floor beams to support the floor.  The old ones just weren’t 100%, and why put all this money into a house if it doesn’t have a solid floor? Another big step was cutting a hole in the wall where the...
Bye Bye Upstairs

Bye Bye Upstairs

  Good morning, and Happy Mother’s Day everyone!!!  Taking advantage of Daddy and Evie playing outside with the chicks to upload a few pictures of the progress in our big upstairs renovation.  These pictures are a bit old now (I can’t wait to share how much has been done!) but I just never seem to...
