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!
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
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!
In the last post, Trent had just completed pouring concrete in our ICF basement/foundation walls. Since then, lots more concrete happened. I mean LOTS. Like 6 of those swirling trucks full. I am glad to say that Trent handed this job over to Chacho, our concrete guy. From what I hear, he is THE man when… Continue reading Bye bye dirt, hello concrete!
Since the last post, Trent has spent every waking daylight hour that he is not at his day job, sawing away at Styrofoam (ICF) and building the foundation for our house. As he estimated, it took him about 4 weeks to complete the ICF walls which will serve as the walls for our garage/basement and… Continue reading ICF DONE!
Though I took a 10 month blog break, our house updates have been going nonstop! We have done so much to this place, but one of the biggest projects since my last post has been the remodel of our guest bathroom and master vanity area. Fortunately and unfortunately, the bathrooms were not that bad when we… Continue reading Bathroom Beautification
After a couple of weeks of hard work, our pergola is finally completed! We have been here almost a year, and have never really had a good outdoor space to hang out in other than the pool. This pergola was just what we needed to make this house feel like a home! We have been… Continue reading Pergola reveal!
Though the house is far from picture perfect on the outside, we have conquered several major exterior projects over the last 6 months or so. Unfortunately some of these projects were unforeseen. We had to cut down 3 of our big trees 😢 . Two were filled with termites and rotting away, while another was… Continue reading Exterior updates
I am SO behind on updating this thing that I was ready to give up. Luckily I came to my senses and decided to catch up by posting a few pictures of where we are now. As always, there is still lots to do but LOTS that's been accomplished! We have done TONS to… Continue reading The blog is not dead!
