Construction – Week 14 0

The house remodel is still keeping us on our toes. I swear, it could be a full time job and we’re not even the ones doing the manual labor! We try to pop by to check on progress once a day, then there are numerous phone calls to answer, decisions to be made, subcontractors to […]

Construction – Weeks 12 & 13 0

I’m behind on my progress posts, so I’m combining the last couple of weeks worth of construction photos. It makes it look like more has happened that way! Framing is pretty much complete on the new front entry, although we still have to design and build the planter that will be to the left of […]

Construction – Week 11 2

As I sit down to go through the latest construction photos and write this post, I’m realizing just how little got accomplished at the job site this week. A couple new interior walls were framed and some minor work was done to prepare for the new roof and entry, but that’s about the extent of […]

Construction – Week 10 0

Week 10 marks the supposed halfway point in our little remodel project. Needless to say, we are far from being halfway done. Do we even have half of a house at this point? No. Will I need to check myself into a halfway house before it’s all said and done? Yes!   One of more […]

Construction – Week 9 0

Apparently this has turned into a blog just about construction! You’ll have to bear with me for a couple months longer, unfortunately. This project is consuming the majority of my mental capacity right now so I don’t have room to think about much else. To put it frankly, this was a really crappy week on […]

Construction – Week 8 0

It’s hard to get a sense of the space from photos alone, but in person the house has a good vibe going now. Before construction started, I hated going over there because the interior just felt dismal and depressing. Eight weeks in, it’s already starting to feel like a whole different house. The structural steel […]

Construction – Week 7 0

Right now construction is about a week behind schedule due to some delays in getting our structural steel. According to the contractor’s schedule, the walls should have been completely framed by now and work should have already started on the roof. Other than that little hiccup, things are going relatively smoothly. The big steel column […]

Construction – Week 6 0

Week 6 was relatively slow compared to previous weeks, but I do have a few progress pictures to share: Work started on the new entry where the gabled roof will be extended to the front porch. We also finalized the design of the new custom front door and I think it will add some much-needed […]

Construction – Week 5 1

This past Monday afternoon around lunch time I walked over to the house to check on the progress and this is what I found…. ….snow and a gaping whole in the roof! The day that we were scheduled to demo the roof and exterior wall, winter decided to make its reappearance in the middle of […]

Moab in May 0

Last weekend we decided that we needed a little getaway, so we packed up the car and headed three hours west to Moab, Utah. Moab is known for its dramatic desert landscape, mountain biking, hiking, camping, four wheeling, and river expeditions. This was our first trip to Moab and we loved it! We tent camped […]
