Remember the World’s Worst Barn? It was one of the reasons we bought this property…because of the dream. It’s starting to look much better. Ish. And I wanted to show you what’s been done so far, grab your coffee, I’ve got a ton of photos. And if you are like me and spoiled by beautiful […]

This past week we spent some time in Williamsburg, Norfolk and Hampton Virgina for a last week of the summer, before school, family vacation.

Because Choosing Your Battles Saves Your Sanity :: How Having One Decent Space Makes all the Difference

night stand

The first room in our house that was kind of livable/done-ish was our bedroom. I knew we’d be knocking down walls (they were knocked down in the kitchen before we even moved in) and living without a sink or stove or ceiling in the kitchen. We needed a place where we could close the door […]
