Our New Project

I have some exciting news! Matt, myself, and some of our family, are tackling a big project this summer and fall… we are renovating a cape cod style home from top to bottom! Since Matt and his uncle are doing most of the construction themselves, the house won’t be ready to sell until late fall. […]

Throwback Thursday: Past renovations

In 2007, Matt and I bought our first house and our goal was to flip it. It was definitely a great experience and we were successful! It’s crazy looking through these pictures because this is not our style at all but we were trying to make it pretty neutral. The house sold in September 2008! […]

Let’s find a countertop

OK, so this was a tough one… I think it is a close runner-up to picking out appliances. I knew I wanted quartz because I did love the look of marble but knew deep down it wasn’t practical for me after asking myself these questions… Am I going to drop a pot or something heavy […]

Here are some exterior shots of our house during the reno! Our new front door isn’t in yet but I will update you once it is in. Please note that I do not have a ‘before’ shot of the back of our house?! I hope it turns up while I sort through my photos but […]

I wanted something classic with clean lines which is usually the […]

We started demolition!

This past Saturday we finally started demolishing our main floor! So exciting! In case you missed it here are the plans. I always thought demolition would be easy… knock down some walls, the ceiling and carry it to the bin! Well that one wall breaks up into thousands of pieces, then you have batt insulation […]

Mudroom renovation

Renovation update- we are just waiting on the final plans for our main floor then our renovation can start. I hope to post some pictures of the plans soon! Here are some pictures of our mudroom renovation (next to the sunroom) that we did last summer. It started off with an waste of space with […]

Choosing kitchen appliances

Warning- if you are not shopping for appliances, most likely you will not find this interesting. Until recently I couldn’t tell you what appliances my friends had. I didn’t know what a sub-zero fridge was and had no clue how much the nice looking ovens with the red knobs were. 4 Years ago my husband […]

Sunroom Transformation

When we first started this project last summer we debated on whether or not to put money into the room, maybe it was worth it to tear it down and put the money into other projects? We decided that it would be a room we would enjoy and to keep the extra space in our […]
