First blog post

Guess what!!! We bought a fixer upper you guys! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to immerse ourselves into this project. The minute I walked into the front door, I saw past the 80’s, and looked into the future at all the wonderful possibilities this home had to offer and I immediately wanted to write a contract. The remodel, if renovated to its highest potential, will be a huge undertaking. Definitely not for the light-hearted, and for sure many would take a hard pass on.  But we can’t wait to get started!

In our home search, we were looking for a basement home, with a yard for the kids, a pool, close to our school, and this diamond in the rough fell out of escrow, right into our laps. Apparently, the previous buyers cancelled due to the time it would take to renovate. But it was right up our alley, and we snatched  it up! Michael, (my husband) is a hard working engineer, who can do anything, and I, a tenacious creative type, have a love for design, renovation and anything DIY.  Top to bottom, front to back, inside and out, EVERY single inch needs lots of TLC to restore it to its former glory. And that’s just what we intend to do!

We hope you follow along as we document the process. Until next time……
