Weekend blitz and 1 year anniversary

I took an extra long weekend since we have off for Presidents day. With 5 solid days of work ahead we should make some good progress. We're hoping to knock out a good portion of the master bathroom and get both of the other bedrooms floored.

Today is also our 1 year anniversary of starting construction! One year ago today we kicked this project off by knocking down the old porch. Neither of us thought we would be as far as we are in the construction process so hopefully by next year we will be finished!


  1. Happy Anniversary. It really has come a long way. I never posted before however I have been following along religiously. We are working on a very similar project. We started 4 month after you, so your blog has been very helpful. We were able to keep our original kitchen functional so we are saving it for last. Your kitchen really looks great. We are in the process of laying the hardwood flooring throughout the bedrooms. This has been the most back breaking work but the most awarding. Good luck, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

    1. Thanks! We're at the stage now where everything we do makes a big change in the look and feel of the house so that is very rewarding at the end of the day. I agree, the hardwood is pretty tiring. I'm glad we bought larger width flooring (3 3/4") so at least it goes somewhat fast. I also only do a little bit at a time and then break away and do other projects. It gets a little tiring when we have to do the same thing for several days (or weeks!) in a row.
