Getting Started with Phase 2 Home Expansion: The Garage
We are ready for phase two of our home expansion. Showing you the plans and where we're planning.
Expansion Bathroom Reveal
You've been seeing peeks of the bathroom in sponsored posts and I'm excited to say this bathroom is finally done! We were waiting for the shower splash screen that was on backorder to arrive and get installed and you're going to think I'm crazy but after we ordered and paid for it, I decided the day before I didn't want it installed!
Before + After: Adding Natural Light with VELUX Skylights + Sun Tunnels
This going to be the biggest before and after blog post you've ever seen. We may have added one room - the expansion - but five rooms received a light makeover with VELUX skylights and sun tunnels!
The roof over our head with GAF
The first thing completed of our expansion was the most important part - the roof! You may have recalled we got a new roof four years ago. We had a 3-tab roof shingle we knew would last a few more years before we needed a new one. I was definitely excited for a new look but let's be honest no one looks forward to the cost of a new roof so you want to make sure you do enough research and you love your roof!
Trials and Triumphs with a Home Expansion
You've been seeing parts of our home expansion through some sponsored posts, and little sneaks on IG, and I thought I'd share the things you don't see me sharing on social or just from photos - the decision making, organization, the behind the scenes "stuff" that makes it happen. I want to share what we've learned - you know the character building that comes from trials.
Protecting our Home and Loves with the Onelink Smart Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm
Now that the expansion is near compete - and complete enough to shoot our campaigns in, we're finishing up the short punch list. As we plan on moving in furniture that has been sitting in my photo studio before Black Friday, I realized we didn't think of a smoke detector in that space.
