We finally got new kitchen countertops last November just before Thanksgiving. It was such a process!! Half the problem was our indecisiveness, and the other was getting things scheduled. First we wanted corian, then quartz, granite, and then quartz again. We wanted durable, and the more people we got quotes from the more the information… Continue reading Countertops!
Woke up to some hammering one morning and discovered that our neighbor was having part of their fencing replaced. She stopped to chat with us later the next day while we were outside cleaning up the front yard of leaves. The house on the other side of her had sold, and the new owner was… Continue reading Half a fence!
Just a quick post about two minor updates we did. Y’all just one more post and I have finally caught up with our renovations! The garage is still a work in progress.

You ever just hate something about your house? From day one that you bought your house, you just hated one thing? For me that was the kitchen ceiling. It had the raised boxed fluorescent lights. Ugly and very out dated. So we finally decided to replace the old outdated lights with new recessed lights! While… Continue reading Kitchen Ceiling

I didn’t know that… Continue reading A few more updates and a lawnmower?

Before this was a tiny little pod light in the ceiling. It was awful and barely gave any light to the area. This chandelier is gorgeous and… Continue reading More Electrical Work
There really wasn’t anything wrong with our old fridge as far as keeping things cold and frozen as they should be. It was the ice and water maker. It was possessed! Water wouldn’t shut off unless I opened the door. Ice would be made but wouldn’t come and would get frozen to the spout it… Continue reading New Fridge

We finally got a small break in the heat and I was able to almost complete one of my projects. So I will have an update on that. I also… Continue reading Things To Come
When we bought the house we had planned on updating all the appliances in the kitchen. They were all a bit older but in working condition so it wasn’t a top priority. As a person that likes to bake and cook, having an oven that works properly at the right temperatures is pretty crucial. We… Continue reading New Stove
