The most beautiful dirt in the world

Our yard is coming together!  The driveway and porch are dry, we are loving parking on the gigantic megadriveway. This is from last week, before the new driveway was dry. We don't have to park in the middle anymore! I'll get around to decorating the front porch soon, but for the past week we've been… Continue reading The most beautiful dirt in the world

Concrete jungle

WE HAVE CONCRETE! It took longer than we'd anticipated to get it, but it's here!  On the ground!  In my driveway!  We were hoping to be able to pour the concrete last week, but it rained all week so it had to wait until yesterday. It's still wet, we can't drive on it for a… Continue reading Concrete jungle

Mud, mud, mud.

Work started on our driveway this weekend!  It's very thrilling and also super messy. We weren't expecting to get work started quite this soon, but our contractor said he could get started as soon as we'd signed the contract and paid the deposit, and we realized, "Wait a minute...we can do that, like...right now!"  We… Continue reading Mud, mud, mud.

Adventures in flooring, continued.

Through complete luck and happenstance, we get to carpet our bedrooms next week! WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Our bedrooms currently have laminate flooring, which, on its own, is fine.  It's dark, which is my preference, so that's good.  What's not good, however, is that because of how our house is laid out, the "meh" laminate bumps right up… Continue reading Adventures in flooring, continued.

We did it!

We are 90% done with our January kitchen makeover!  We worked our asses off this weekend, and it paid off, but this is kind of how I feel right now: The flooring project didn't go quite as smoothly as we had hoped.  Mom and I got started and then got panicked and made a desperate… Continue reading We did it!
