I spent the weekend working on my soon-to-be nephew's nursery, which made me realize that I have yet to show you my girl's rooms! To my kids dismay, I like to design kids bedrooms similar to adult bedrooms: light, airy and minimal, but with a touch of whimsy. If my kids had it their way,… Continue reading Kids Bedrooms
If you were at little Blynn's 2nd birthday party last September, you may have had the SELRES_72e14432-66b4-48dc-bda9-b83e41f43a88SELRES_557d5dfb-14c5-4035-b526-432ff7647f6dSELRES_f4a16460-2ab4-4187-93e7-93628f84174SELRES_f4a16460-2ab4-4187-93e7-93628f841741SELRES_557d5dfb-14c5-4035-b526-432ff7647f6dSELRES_72e14432-66b4-48dc-bda9-b83e41f43adispleasure of using our ultra ghetto/partial finished basement bathroom. For that, I am sorry. Here are some pictures of what it looked like at said b-day fiesta: Since I am an OCD neat freak and the thought of 20… Continue reading Basement Bathroom 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!
For me, one of the hardest things about building a custom home is that the possibilities are ennnnnnndless. Within reason, we could have gone in any direction with the floor plan and exterior elevation of our home. Due to a few unique characteristics of our lot (flood plain and major sloping), we did have to… Continue reading Creekside Custom Exterior (Pt. 1)
Heyyyyyy everybody. Can we just pretend that I didn't disappear from the blogosphere for 3+ months, and get right to it? If you can't let me off that easy and are wanting a bit of an explanation, here it is. Having subcontractors do most of your work for you makes home building go REALLY fast.… Continue reading Creekside Custom: Study, Guest Bedroom, Guest Bathroom
Our house is finally to the point where it looks like a house you could live in! 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!
That's right people, we've been framed! The good kind of framed. The kind where this thing we call a lot, turned into this thing that we now call a house! The plans that I have seen on paper, but not really been able to see since my mind does not work the way that Trent's does ,… Continue reading We’ve been framed!
Before you think it yourself, I'll start by saying that we are probably a little crazy. We are finally in a really good place with our ∗once∗ ugly house. It looks great and the to-do list is getting really small. Naturally, you would think that we would embrace the extra free time and smile at the… Continue reading For the love of a lot.
As crazy as this sounds, I was originally drawn to our house from the curb while house hunting in the neighborhood . Even though the house was REALLY ugly, the lot that it's on is pretty amazing. Our house sits on half an acre and the bulk of it is in the front yard. The large front yard combined with several… Continue reading Curb Appealed. The long journey of de-uglifying the outside of our house.
