New Patio!

20190212_145443 - Copy.jpg

A lot more work going on around here. This time on the outside. We had the patio extended 15 feet out and 13 feet across. Also poured a 5'x5' slab for a firepit. Even the front yard got a little bit of love. We are excited for the weather to get nice so we can fully enjoy the new patio. Lots of  […]

A few more shots of the Busy Beaver's Handiwork.


Just a few more shots of the work. The mantle in the old yellow oak from the 90's: The mantle now with colors for the new millenium: The walnut made such a drastic difference. Much more deep and rich looking. Next up is a bit of decor. Nikki's plants and owls above her kitchen cabinets: Adds a nice  […]

Finshed the kitchen backsplash last night. Came out looking pretty damn good. Broke up all the white and made the walls and cabinets pop. Once we get the rest of the stainless steel appliances things should look really nice. Next up is the dining room walls and living room.   Busy Busy Busy!

Working Hard or Hardly Working


We picked up Nikki's monitors and our chairs from my folks in Georgia last week. Her dual monitor stand came in today. We mounted her monitors and got her workstation setup. Here she is hard at "work". She even made a nice little hanging spot for her VR setup. She's so spoiled!   […]

Some More Decor


A project that we've had on the shelf for a few weeks has finally been completed. We added shelves to the Living Room and Dining Room. (Pardon the pun) The Dining Room shelves, two greyish white shelves above the side windows with some accent pieces on them. And then the Living Room shelves also  […]

Kitchen On The Way!


We've done quite a bit of work refinishing the cabinets in the kitchen. New paint, new hardware and eventually a new backsplash. The old kitchen was a traditional 90's oak and white kitchen with, yes you guess it, brass hardware. As you can see very dated. After about a week's worth of painting and  […]

Busy Beavers


Yup, put up a few more lights. Even have a couple more ceiling fans too and a couple of smart switches to go. This was the old light in the dining room. And now the new and improved lighting: Forgive all the tools and boxes, we're still in a state of flux. Lots more unpacking to do. The poor Garage  […]

Ooooh, Upgrades!


Some more upgrading around the house going on. There was an old nasty looking dual brass can track light over the mantle of the fireplace. It had to go! As you can see replacing it was of the upmost importance. This of course gave Nikki an excuse to go shopping and a few days later and about an  […]

It's Official!

We made an offer on the house, had the inspection and began the paperwork frenzy. We close on February 2nd! The inspection went really well. No major problems were found. Just minor nit-pick items and simple sub $100 fixes that we can handle ourselves. In fact the Inspector said it was the best  […]

Busy... Busy... Busy... Again


For the past couple of weeks we've been in Georgia visiting family for the holidays. We've also been house hunting. We found a house we like now we're just dealing with loan officers and real estate agents. Unfortunately they all seem to be in no hurry to do anything. We put in calls but get no  […]
