Splish Splash – The Shower Walls

December 15, 2017

After what seems like an eternity, we finally got around to putting up our shower walls. We finished the shower floor around a year ago, but other projects needed to be taken care of before we could tackle the walls. Finally, it was time to finish up the shower and the plumbing fixtures. We’ve been pretty excited about these walls for a while, so it was really fun to see them finally go up and complete our vision.

No Time to be a Couch Potato – Building Our Storage Couch

December 14, 2017

Oh, hey there! We’re just jumping right in on this post since my goal is to knock out a few of these all at once to catch up. This one is quick, so, let’s get to it!

After finishing up the kitchen, it was time to move into the living room. Since our living room is so small, the only thing we needed to work on was our couch. A couch is such a natural place to incorporate storage, and we obviously wanted to take advantage of the space. We made our couch as big as possible so we could plop down and relax, but also maybe not have to get rid of allllll our belongings before moving in because we can squeeze them into the couch storage!

Our Tiny, Tiny Kitchen – Part Two

September 9, 2017

It’s time to post the follow up to our first Kitchen update. We’ve been working on several projects at once, but we finally have our kitchen cabinets looking great. The cabinets have been one of our hardest projects so far. Because there are so many moving parts, everything has to fit together perfectly, be perfectly level and square, and function correctly. It took us a few tries to get it right.

Tiny Floors – Installing Vinyl Plank Flooring

July 31, 2017

You guys. YOU GUYS. I am soooo behind! This blog is so out of date! Yikes. Yikes. Yikes.

Just assume from now on that I am always about 3 to 4 months behind schedule in updating this thing. Anyone who comes to visit us is always surprised by how far along we are on the house, because of course, the blog is so behind. So….if you want to really see how the house is coming along you should just stop by and say hello! Any excuse for a visit, right? Now, on to updates! This post is about our floors. This was a project I took on by myself, so in all honestly, we’re lucky this even came out right.

I love the dark, rough cut finish we chose for the vinyl floors. The variations look really great.

Interior & Window Trim

May 8, 2017

This is just a quick picture-post update. Because there is already an extensive post of outside trim, I didn’t think it was necessary to write too much about the interior trim. I’ll include a few extra details in the picture captions, if you’re interested in reading.

It’s a bit strange, but for quite a while it seemed like no matter how much we worked, the house seemed to look exactly the same. Of course it changed, but it always felt like a box under construction. Just in the last few weeks, though, it feels like we’ve finally broken through. Things are feeling more polished. Of course we still have a lot of work to do, but our projects seem to be making a bigger and bigger impact each step of the way. How exciting! Continue Reading…
