The Next Project: Our Home Office

Posted by John on December 5th, 2013

Even though we’re still wrapping up some work in our sitting room (paint and some decor still to-do), we wanted to let everyone know what project we’d be starting after we finish.  We’re psyched to be switching gears soon and finally getting to work on our home office. If you took our home tour, you […]

Building Face Frames

Posted by John on February 19th, 2013

Very happy to be building face frames back in the workshop, aka my basement!  To bring you up to speed, so far we picked an overall look of the design we want.  We then dimensioned the design based on where we’d like it and discussed the whole build process.  Next we designed the face frames […]

Our Master Bedroom and Sitting Room

Posted by John on January 2nd, 2013

Two posts in a row!  Talk about a New Years resolution.  It’s like going to the gym everyday for a week… that’s what two posts in a row is like… at least in my head.  I haven’t been to the gym since around 2005.  It’s been 7 years.  I was 26.  Wow.  Anywho, about our […]

Thursday we drove up to Northeast PA and had dinner at my mom’s house. Driving for two hours back home after eating turkey can be dangerous, but luckily […]

Ceiling Fan Installation

Posted by John on June 22nd, 2012

We hope everyone is managing to stay cool during this little East Coast heat wave we’ve been having.  It was supposed to go up to 100 F yesterday!  I love the summer, but I’d rather be a little cool, than a little hot, ya know.  We have a blow-up pool we’ll be setting up for […]

Our Kitchen

Posted by John on January 23rd, 2012

Believe it or not, Lisa and I are just getting over our brutal weekend a couple weeks ago where we installed hardwood floors in our family room!  I think my last splinter just came out.  I had about a dozen of them AND I was wearing gloves!  It was ridiculous.  I had three bandaids on […]

Our Morning Room

Posted by Lisa on September 1st, 2011

As I made my daily cup of Tassimo latte this morning (well, not really daily anymore, more like a once a week treat now; super splurge, I know!), I looked over to our morning room just off the kitchen and I noticed the sun was extraordinarily bright and the light was coming through all the […]
