    Real Big Plans. (A Remodel Story)

    Hi Friends, Let’s catch up on what’s happening at the Sunderland house! If you’ve been following along on Instagram, then you already know we started a pretty big remodel project last month. We are reconfiguring our back hallway area to make much better use of the space. The back hallway is off our living room […]

    Farewell, House.

    Hi Friends, This blog post is dedicated to the original Sunderland house. Our first home buy, the place where I learned to do all the projects, and learned so many skills that will come in handy at our new place. This home was the longest I’ve ever lived in one spot – a little over […]

    The Story of Finding Our New House.

    Hi Friends! In June of 2020 we decided to talk to our mortgage lender and see how much house we could afford, if we were to decide that it was the right time to buy. We went through that process and all throughout were just casually browsing homes in our area. Then in July, we […]

    A Master Bath Update (Among Other Things).

    Hi Friends, If you caught my latest Instagram post, then you know our upstairs bath is just about complete. We call it the master bath, although technically it’s a shared bath because of its two doors. We just have no one to share it with yet. I’m picking out hardware and accessories this week and […]

    Laundry Room Reveal.

    Hi Friends, It’s been a minute since I talked about our laundry room that we started work on LAST YEAR. Where does the time go? I feel like one of those homeowners on HGTV where the Property Brothers show up and they have like 16 uncompleted reno projects going on in their house. You know? […]

    Prepare to be Floored.

    Hi Friends, A long long time ago in a land far far away…just kidding. Last fall (which isn’t super long ago) at our house (which is actually right where I’m sitting) we decided to get crazy and rip out all our flooring on the main level of our house. We live in a rambler so […]

    Feels Like Home.

    Hi Friends, Remember before Christmas when I posted the before pics of our family room? No? I’ll give you a minute to look them over again here. You’re back? Okay.

    Our Next Project.

    Hi Friends, This blog post could also be titled “If you’re thinking about starting a reno project right before you host Christmas in December, don’t do it.” Ha! The past three weeks we’ve been working on our basement family room and hallway area and we are finally almost done. Just a little last minute styling […]

    All About That Tile.

    Hi Friends, So I will admit, I have a thing for tiles. I don’t know why but every stinking time I’m at the hardware store I want to stop and browse! Even if we have no need for tile, you can find me in the tile aisle. You can imagine when we started remodeling our […]
