It only took 7 months, but here is the kitchen and dining room reveal!
Since it's Thursday, and cruising by our last house on my way home this morning made me miss our cute old abode, I thought I would take you down memory lane with some before and after pictures of our Running Deer Trail project. People thought we were crazy when we bought that house, but even… Continue reading Throwback Thursday!
I know, I know... You're thinking: "REALLY, didn't you JUST show us your study?! Where is the KITCHEN, THE LIVING ROOM, THE BEDROOMS?! Show us something JUICY!!" I get it.

Our roof, or roofs I should say, were installed a few weeks ago, and our painters have just about wrapped up the exterior work. The only thing left on the exterior painting agenda is to coat all of… Continue reading Exterior updates!
Sadly, this is probably the last post I will ever make for our "Ugly House" as we officially closed on the sale last Thursday. We poured our hearts and souls into this house for almost 3 years, and are finally done making improvements to it. With construction moving rapidly at our Creekside home, we felt it was the… Continue reading The end of a chapter and the long awaited before and after photos of Project Ugly House!
