For my latest blogging adventure, I’ll be joined by my husband of nearly 15 years, Big Daddy P (neither carpenter, nor plumber, nor electrician). Together we vow to learn the ins and outs of DIY home improvement while staying married in the process. A few things you should know about us:
• We have little in common
• We don’t agree on much
• We don’t work well together (hooray for home improvement!)
Despite these marital truths, we seem to have one of those relationships that work for some inexplicable reason. Of all the many, many disagreements we’ve had about how often married people actually have sex and whether a meal without meat is, in fact, an actual meal, we do agree on one thing: our house needs work.
But enough about us, allow me to introduce the real star of this blog – our house:
- Bedroom: 4
- Baths: 3.0
- Sqft: 1,702
- Lot: 4,002
- Built: 1987
- Property type: Single Family
Would you like to take a house tour? You can totally keep your shoes on.
Now that you’ve seen the house we started with, allow me to answer a few questions you don’t have.
Why we’re here:
We recently decided we wanted to move. Upon learning that selling wasn’t really an option, we decided that we wanted to do more than just stay in our home; we wanted to transform it into a space we adored…as cheaply as possible. After all, it’s a lovely home and a place where we’re created thousands of memories. Why not create a few more involving power tools and emergency plumbing repair?
What we intend to do:
Update our 1980s tract home into something reminiscent of the 21st century. Popcorn ceilings and florescent lighting be damned!
Why we’ll make good neighbors:
We don’t have a barking dog, crying baby, or even have people over very often. We mow our lawn weekly, take in our trashcans, and have never once gardened naked. Oh, and I make really good onion dip.
I hope you’ll join us on our home improvement adventures as it was so very nice to meet you!
