meet my dog

Libby usually likes to help. But sometimes it's all just too much for her, and she tries to find a way to end it all. So sad.

the sink that Josh built

Want us to design and build You a custom steel vanity of your very own? It'll only take about four months longer than you hoped and cost twice as much as your budget, I promise. I like the built in tp holder - they're so fashionable these days!

Wood stoves are messy

See our new wood stove? See how it's slightly off center between the window and the door?
Sometimes when you make a decision because you think it will be simpler ( like reusing the wall to your bedroom upstairs ) it just makes other things more complicated ( like forcing the stove off center and adding another $100 triple-wall-elbow to avoid stupid aforementioned wall upstairs.) At least, that's what I've learned.

"Nice little fixer upper"

Well, here she is, back when we bought her.

For all the background info, "before" pictures, floor plans you could ask for, visit our website

I'll try to keep this better updated.

My first blog post

My husband Josh and I are currently in the midst of a major remodel of our first home, a two-story brick number built in 1907. After finding inspiration in other design and home blogs, I thought it might be fun to share our stories, show off our (slow) progress, and quite possibly let you laugh at the constant decline of my sanity.

Please enjoy.
