It's about time for a little life update on eight months of owning my first home. This blog never did become renovation central as i had predicted (though Instagram certainly saw some of the nitty gritty of my elbow grease). It's crazy how much has been tackled in just a few months, most of it through the fall. Now I've had the pleasure of just living, breathing, sleeping, and all around enjoying the space. Taking a break from spending (why didn't anyone warn me know expensive house projects are?! I'm kidding...), and evaluating what I'd like to invest in after getting to know my new home better. There could have been a million update posts in here, how to refinish original fir floors, how to replace a titled ceilings with drywall and crown-molding, re-framing windows 101 etc. We joke most of my projects has just been undoing previous renovations! But, I am so digging my little piece of the universe. Shout out to my family and very kind friends for putting in long hours, this has been such a humbling experience. Check out this post from early October to see where we started.
Anyhoo, this house has come so far. I found a fixer-upper with good bones in lieu of having more money to buy a nicer place... and now I have the house I couldn't afford!
Not pictured in this tour, the second bedroom (a stuff room... perhaps a roommate space eventually), the bathroom (eh, cute but boring), and my laundry room which is home to my online vintage shop (this room is a mess, renovation tools everywhere! This is a room in need...).
