There is so much tiling in this bathroom. Since we decided to do subway tile wainscoting as well, the tiling in the bathroom is the longest part of this reno. So after we did cementboard, we waterproofed (the red stuff), and jumped into tiling! While you can tile solo, we learned in the last bathroom … Continue reading #tilelife
This update actually happened a little while ago, but here it is! When we last checked in with the backyard we had cut down some tree-bushes, seeded, and tossed the rotted fenceposts. Since then we also power washed the fence, replaced the missing fenceposts, and stained it all! The drought this summer wasn't very good … Continue reading Backyard Update
So in the last master bath post you all got to see how we demo'd it. Now y'all get to see it start the road to recovery! So we had to put up cement board, tape & mud it, waterproof it, then tile begins! The beginning: Cement board up, taped, and mudded! Not a lot … Continue reading Closing those walls up
Since we've basically already done this renovation once before on the guest/hall bath, the demo on the master went far more smoothly. We basically gutted the entire thing. Vanity/sink, mirror cabinet, wall cabinet, toilet, and tub all ripped out and taken away - for free! Instead of waiting for the next bulk trash pickup day … Continue reading Demo in the master bath
Its finally time. Time to bring the master bath into the present. We haven't touched this bathroom since we moved in, so here's what we're working with: Generally we're keeping it pretty similar to the look of the guest bathroom reno we did, plus a few nicer touches. We'll be installing a shower niche, using … Continue reading Master bath reno – the before

We couldn't really find anything at our price point that was exactly what we wanted, so I decided to use some leftover/new wood to make some! We wanted the bookcases to be able to … Continue reading Office Bookcases
Now that we're back in TX with no crazy plans on the horizon we've jumped back into home reno projects. So - we went ahead and finished off "building" the garden - now just for plants! So as far as improvements go... - We built boxes - Unexpectedly had to get a new A/C unit... … Continue reading Garden Alley – update!
Our backyard is situated in such a way that the entire yard gets a fair amount of shade, other than by the AC unit. So over in AC alley we've decided to completely get rid of the grass and make it a graveled garden with raised beds! I knew I wanted to use cedar if … Continue reading Garden Alley
Our hall/guest bathroom. Like most things in this house, they were livable... but not ideal. We did a ton in this bathroom, so I'll just skip to the exciting part. AWWWWW yes! So excited with how this turned out!
Loving how the tub surround is turning out! We still have to grout and lay the floor tile so major tiling B&A is on the way.
