We are on to some of the final steps of our bathroom renovation. If you’ve read other posts, you will know that we built this bathroom from nothing; we had to frame it, drywall it, add new plumbing and electrical, tile, etc. Finally getting to trimwork feels so good! We chose to do a board […]
It’s been said many times, but the best part of living in an old home is its character. Sometimes (or a lot of times) that character can be a little quirky, though. That was the case with our sunroom entry way. It was obvious that the sunroom at the front of our house was added […]
Since embarking on this bathroom project, I’ve found that renovations can greatly affect your perception of progress and defeat.

Our 1920’s house has a ton of character, but with that character comes a lot of plaster! Most of our renovation plans involve moving and opening up some walls (I posted about our bathroom renovations and layouts in the my last post). We are a month into our house, and we’ve removed so much lath […]
