I’ve decided to start this little blog to document progress on our first home, share design ideas and diy projects and have a place to blab it up!
A little history…
My husband and I bought our first home together back in April 2006, since then we’ve done a huge amount of work on our little nest. It has been amazing to have full creative power over our first home. The skies the limit!!
My husband is a painting contractor so that of course comes with its perks! He also did all of our plumbing and electrical work during our remodel! He’s a definite keeper!
Here’s a list of what we’ve done so far:
Installed bamboo floors in the kitchen and living room
Updated all the interior and exterior light fixtures
Complete exterior and interior painting
Replaced all the windows and doors
Installed crown moulding and 5″ baseboard throughout
New automatic garage doors. Yay!! no more barn doors!
Completely gutted and extended our kitchen and acquired a brand spankin’ new one!
Added a master bathroom (double sinks=heaven on earth!)
Trashed our old water heater for an amazing tankless…yes unlimited hot water!
Added a peak above the garage along with a new roof
Installed exterior gutters
Got a new stamped concrete patio for the backyard and also installed a beautiful white pergola
Unfortunately we have very few before pictures. But here’s a crappy cell phone picture of the peak being installed.
