Its been a long time since I blogged but seriously there is so much going on that sitting down to blog is something I just don’t have a ton of time to do… until now. I am getting ready to start blogging a house renovation that my hubby and I are getting ready to start.
We are in the middle of purchasing a home in Colorado which we hope to have in hand by the beginning of November. Then we start a month of weekend renovations on the house. There are a couple big jobs but mostly repainting, repairing things, etc. But since we are going to attempt to do this out of pocket without racking up a ton of debt it is also becoming a mission of doing the job in many different ways.
1. Conscious of time constraints – we need to be able to do it all within 30 days
2. What can we do for the best with being careful on the amount of money we spend.
3. Uniqueness – watching a lot of reno shows and house hunting there is A LOT of the same things out there with homes.
4. Being smart – there are things we can not do on our own and things that we can do
Unfortunately we can’t renovate the entire house but we are starting with what will have to be done right away before moving in to start making our stamp on it.
Right now we are in the research phase and slowly starting to figure out what we want to do with which areas. The easiest being which paints to use. The house we are purchasing has some interesting colours on the walls, has some very bad painting done throughout the house, whoever lived there LOVED colour blocking and the idea of painting one wall one color and the rest another. As well as textures on partial walls.
So, watch for updates. I will post pictures of the house as we get closer and some info on products we found out there that are really interesting. But a quick run down of other things in my life… I moved to LA to be with my then fiancee, got pregnant, married, had a baby, moved to Colorado, still in school and now a stay at home mom. Unfortunately, I have gained all my weight back from what I have lost but I aim on losing that again so look for more posts on my workouts and dieting again.
