Read more: It’s Kismet – A Door Story.
Hi Friends, The best DIY’s come with a killer backstory, and this one is my favorite story to date. A couple years ago when we first started house hunting, we came across this house that wasn’t actually for sale. It was a rental listing, but times were crazy so we asked if maybe they would […]

Read more: Our Remodel Lighting Selections, Plus Some I Left in the Cart.
Hi Friends, I think lighting design is my kryptonite.

Read more: Phase 1 Kitchen Refresh.
Hi Friends, Let me introduce you to our new kitchen. There are things I appreciate about it, including the storage space. Our last kitchen didn’t have nearly this many cabinets and I always struggled to make room for pots and pans and serving ware, etc. There are also so many things about this space that […]
Read more: Our Phase 1 Master Bathroom Renovation.
Hi Friends, Today is exciting because I finally finished up the very first project in our new house and it’s a good one. I knew a full on bathroom remodel in our master bath was not going to be a priority for a few years at least but because it’s our day in and day […]
Read more: 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 […]
