House Progress- 3rd Update!

Hi there, friends!  I am thrilled to share our most recent house update and reveal the blog's NEW look.  What do you think?!  

It is hard to believe that we purchased our home over 7 months ago.. I was going through the before pictures this week and I am so proud of how much we have done.  There were many days that I didn't know how on Earth we would make this house a home since we both work full-time, Dustin is in school part-time AND with a little one.  By the grace of God we have made it through the roughest parts of the renovation and the rest should be easy peasey. (Hopefully I am not jinxing us...)

In the original floor plan, the kitchen and living room were separated by a half-wall.  We removed that wall and installed a beam in the attic for support in order to achieve an open-concept floor plan.  Doing that made such an amazing difference!   You can view the BEFORE house tour here.


Warning-- picture overload! 



















The kitchen has come a long way and the new layout is wonderful!!  This layout is much more efficient for cooking and entertaining.  It always takes a while for a new house to feel like home and I can finally say it feels like home! Yay!


Remaining on the Punch List:

Build Cabinet Doors/Paint

Cabinet Hardware

Tile Back splash

Install Open Shelving Over Sink

Island Pendant Lighting

Island Counter Stools

Switch Out Our Refrigerator-- the one pictured is our spare fridge

Buy Rug for Sink Area


I should have another update pretty soon!  I am hoping to get some pictures done over the holidays...I will be signing off until after Christmas to spend time with my family.  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!  I am truly grateful for this little creative outlet of mine and even more thankful for you guys following along on this journey with us!  


Merry Christmas!
