My office in Montana was very spacious, spacious enough to double as the library. Here are some pics:
A couch for lounging and reading, desk for reading all of the internets i.e. watching cat videos. It was very nice to have. In the new place, we do not have an extra bedroom that we can dedicate to a library/office.
The living room has the library now and I think that where the bookshelves used to be is where my desk will go. If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen it.
I have been scouring the internet for ideas and have basically come to the conclusion that I should start looking for a small desk, leaning desk or corner table.
Here are some options.
Any of these speak to you? I am leaning towards the leaning desk. OMG sometimes I can’t even stand myself.
After long last the upstairs bathroom is done. Yahoo!!
First photo of the bathroom for this blog. ehh.
And here we go –
to start with – the tile! sigh. It matches the entry landing, the basement landing and the basement bathroom. It is so awesome to walk through the house and feel that kind of consistency.
don’t worry – that side edge of the vanity below has since been cleaned up.
So bright- squinty.
The paint is up, the trim is in, the vanity is in (so gorgeous and shiny white). I also decided to go with a vintage-y looking mirror to contrast the ultra sleek vanity.
I know I keep saying it – but seriously……2013!!! That is when I started this thing. And now its done. I am so excited to be able to cross this off my list.
Have a great day Peeps!
One of the things that does not happen when I take photos, is staging. Would the house pictures look better if I added some things in and moved others around in order to get a great shot? Of course! But that is not how we live in this house and it would not give you an accurate view into how we make this house work for us. The only thing that really changes is the level of cleanliness. hahahaha. Seriously though. I try to take pics after we have picked up the randoms that have accumulated over the course of a few days.
I ran home at lunch yesterday to take a few phone pics of how this place can look at any random time. and poorly lit…sorry peeps
Kitchen is pretty good in comparison to some days. 🙂 Wine left out from book club the night before, dishes left out to dry, Jane’s glass on the counter and my glass on the bar
Jane’s room is looking good.
Main bathroom is so-so. FULL garbage and Jane’s necklace left out on the counter.
The master is the worst. I have a container full of old, small toys to sort through (next to my bedside table). Dave has a pile of clothes that needs to be put away….I think this is Day 3….no Day 4
As a contrast here is the same shot – but clean and lit well.
If you follow me on Instagram – you see the house as it really is on a day to day basis. Here is a pic of Jules dancing; coat on the floor, paper on the chair, etc.
I love the pics that show the house well lit and clean…but I will continue to add in some pics on Instagram and here that represents our day to day life, mess and all.
In my last post, I was focusing on some of the items that we would like to complete before year end. This past weekend Dave and I completed the last portion of our exterior front entry.
It is incredibly flat looking, right? Did someone cut its nose off? Oh yeah….that was me!!
That roof was a rotten mess, so out with the old rotten, yucky roof and on with the new. I’ve said it before…what’s with the offcenter roof line????
- 2 4×4 – cut to 9 feet
- 2 2×6 8ft
- 1 2×8 8ft
- 3 2×6 12ft
- 4 1×5 8ft
- 2 12ft steel panels
- flash sealant
- drip edge
- lag screws and roofing nails
- 2 4×4 post base
Just over halfway
Right before we called it quits at dark
12 total hours of work- mostly done by 1 person. I helped a little…so maybe it could be counted as 1.5 people??
Putting on the last details
The best part is the day after we finished….it rained.
Totally protected under this roof
For a weekends worth of work and $260 we were able to get that extra layer of protection for the front door and those of us that use it 🙂
It has a nose again!!!! hahahahaha
