• Home Remodel Update

    We’ve reached the halfway point!!  Or I guess I should say, “We’ve reached what our contractor claims is the halfway point!!”  I wanted to share some progress pictures with you all to show you just how far we’ve come since August 15th and tell you about where we are in the process. Just to recap it all, we moved into our amazing little Fixer Upper (check out the full tour here!) in November 2017.  We knew from the start that we were looking for a house with great bones with some very specific things that we had to have for…
