Second Floor Renovations Day 1

Day 1 ended with the beginning of a period of mess.

First up on the big renovation agenda is to replace windows and reinsulate our two guest bedrooms. It’s been interesting to live in a house with no rear insulation over the last 3 years (sorry about that, house guests).

Once demolition continues, we’ll have new, energy-efficient windows as well as properly insulated walls.

Coming Soon: new kitchen

It’s been a while since we’ve posted, or frankly renovated, but that’s in the process of changing… now.

We’re working with some great contractors to help us finally do some of the big renovations we’ve been waiting on since we moved in 3 years ago¬†including a full expansion and renovation of the kitchen and main floor, adding a half bath, refinishing the basement and a bunch of other projects along the way.

As demolition kicks off and lots of the unsexy parts of the project begin, let’s just take a moment and look at the kitchen design layout and imagine how great it’s going to be.

Look out for lots more to come soon!
