We were asked recently how we built our master bathroom vanity from the Downing house, pictured below: I have to admit this is one of my favorite projects ever, and I regretted selling this house mostly because of leaving this bathroom behind. One of the best features, in my mind, was that we raised the […]

This post will have to be a two part story, sorry about that, there is just too much information to get it all down at once. It will have to be the upstairs portion and then later the downstairs, which is actually how we did the work, so I guess that seems logical. By far […]
Our master bedroom remodel never seemed to end. It was a continuing project. We cleaned it out, then cleaned it up, finished and then started again, re-installed a closet and finally finishing for good. That sounds all short and sweet, but it happened for about 3 years. I will explain as I go. Before: (you can see the […]

I don’t know if you have this same problem, but our house is full of dinky, tiny base board moldings that are hardly an inch taller than the carpet. Do you know what I mean? Here is a picture, complete with dust and junk. I mean I guess it is nice that I have base moldings at all, it is […]

Welcome Back to our Retro Remodel Series. This is the story of our first house remodel, while we were in college (FYI for new comers). Surprisingly, we did the very least in the living room of the Logan house. It was in decent shape (shrug)… while other things were AWFUL. We tried over time to do little […]

Building the cabinet took a week or two longer than expected. Then it was Thanksgiving, and I wasn’t in the mood to paint… for […]
In Asheville North Carolina we had a really small house barely 1,000 square feet and no budget to speak of. So, when Justin’s office all but shut down and laid off over 20 people we had to find a job, and fast… which also meant that we had a ton of remodeling to do in […]
This week we are showing you the other upstairs bedroom. It was in much worse shape than the yellow room, but surprisingly was the cleanest room in the house! (or at least it felt like that!) This was the room we moved into at first, when we were basically camping out, ripping out all the […]
I know, I’m late this was supposed to be up yesterday…. Sorry! From now on I am just saying next week… to be safe. So the “Yellow Room” was one of two upstairs bedrooms. It was one of the easiest rooms to tackle, so we started on it right away. (We actually finished this before the […]
Here is the bathroom before and after summary post. After: Link to detailed description of remodel.
The very first project just sort of happened. It started like many projects do, with me saying, “I think I will just change this one little thing….” Then when I begin “it” I find a problem with “this”, which leads to “that”. Or in other words the rooms secrets begin to come out and the “tiny project” turns into nothing less than our very […]
Did you ever hear that joke that goes something like this: What do you do if your dishwasher stops working? Kick her, and tell her to get back to work! ha. sooo funny. (said with a flat monotone voice…) But seriously, the dishwasher in this house has been driving me crazy since we got here. […]
