In Two Month’s Time….

In Two Month’s Time….

At some point in time a house becomes a home. And at other times a home just becomes a house…. And sometimes you can’t decide which is which…

Two months. It doesn’t seem like a long period of time, does it? But if you focus, work hard, and put all your energy on something, you’d be surprised how much you can get done in such a short period of time.

We closed on the new house on March 17th. The very next day, my husband and I were there, along with some contractors, beginning renovation. We have been very hands on. I even broke down the old kitchen cabinets myself. Who would think I could rock an electric drill.

While the house is in a great location, has a wonderful structure, the rest left a lot to be desired. So we did a complete gut. There isn’t one room we haven’t changed.


Five or six dumpsters later, the house is finally starting to take some shape…

The jeans have found their home….

But we still have a lot to do….


Eventually we will have a kitchen, but I’m not complaining… What better way to explore the new neighborhood then by having no choice but to eat out 🙂


To stay updated on all the renovations, please follow me on Instagram (it is much easier to post pictures there…)

    1. Ellen – It is crazy how much we have done (house wise, work wise) we are about to crash but we both thrive on being busy
