I have been very disorganized lately. Gasp! Yes I said it and it’s true.
Last week we closed escrow on a new house (our first!) and we are now officially in a whole house renovation. We have our work cut out. (The driveway is now empty so we can fully appreciate the all cement front yard)
A diamond in the rough (fingers crossed).
As exciting as this development is my husband and I are entering into new and unknown territory. I can name half a dozen amazing home reno blogs but we have never actually renovated anything ourselves. I feel pretty handy with a paint brush, but a whole house reno is a completely different story before let alone a whole house reno!
Day 1 of home ownership.
Notice I am holding a sledge hammer in this picture. I think that is about the only time I picked it up during the whole day. The girls and I stuck with the smaller hammer.
Thankfully we had family there to help, including my mom to take the girls out for most of the day.
Kitchen out, wall down.
With the reno under way I am realizing just how important it will be to get organized! Over the next couple of months I hope you’ll follow along as I try to plan and organize a renovation and a move (all while keeping my 2 little ones entertained and my own sanity intact).
Any words of wisdom from renovation veterans?
