Outdoor redo

We have lived in our home for well over 5 years and it has needed a new roof and new siding the entire time. Actually I think it’s needed these things since like the early 90′s. hahaha. We have finally come to the stage in our remodling of doing the outside! No longer will the [...]

House remodel

Here’s some new, fresh pictures of our little nest! We bought this house over 5 years ago. It was actually my husband’s grandparents house. I’m trying to find my pictures of how it all looked in the beginning! Just picture that the living room was all wallpapered in some old bitty design and there was [...]
