Year-End Recap

Lots of blogs {included mine, typically} do a post of their top projects for the year around this time. We didn’t have a bunch of room makeovers or art tutorials, but we did build a house from scratch. This year has been the most exciting yet for us as far as DIY stuff goes. We were able to watch our dream go from this

basement-dugTo this…





basement concrete


back of framed house


back of house with plywood


back of house ready for brick

bricking the house


To finally inside…

Lots of the rooms shown above have since been updated so look for new pictures, new tutorials, and a whole new blog look in the new year! Thanks for hanging with us this year as we took on a big undertaking {which equaled less time for blogging about everything}. I can’t wait to share our new and exciting projects in 2015!
