House projects

Here is a list of all the improvements we have done since June 2nd
  • Fix 2 windows
  • tile backsplash in kitchen
  • paint kitchen
  • replace missing trim in bathrom
  • caulk trim in bathroom and kitchen
  • attach back porch post to patio
  • fix plumbing leaks in bath and laundry room
  • have insulation blown in attic
  • new porch light
  • paint mailbox
  • drywall behind washer and freezer in laundry room
  • texture walls in laundry & kitchen
  • replace plug-ins & light switches to match
  • install light in living room

I am sure that I forgot something. It really feels good to get things crossed off the to-do list! We have a few more things to do before we are finally done with everything, but right now I am a happy girl!

Kitchen is Done



New tile, paint, countertops, sink, faucet, stove, dishwasher, switches, plug-ins........It is finally done. And it feels really good. Don't get me wrong though, putting in the tile was really, really hard! But it looks really good!

We have done more this summer to our house than we have in years, and everything is almost done. We just had insulation blown in the attic yesterday and it has helped out tremendously! Aaron and I both were surprised by how cool our house became. We are dumb for not doing it years ago, we probably spent thousands on our utilities because our attic was not insulated. Oh well lesson learned the expensive way, I guess. Our goal was to sell this house and find an acreage, but so far only one house was available we could afford and fit our needs but I don't think that it is the one. So we may have run out of time to move to another. It looks like the economy is going to get real bad soon, so we may have to just hunker down where we are for a while longer.


I have got to go take a better picture soon!

Before & After


I put the drywall up after 3 years of having a hole in the wall. We were just lazy after we switched the plumbing and never got to it until now. It is nice having it done!
