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!
Plan and Organize Your Next Home Project with Hyve App
There's a new app in town that's going to change the way you plan, budget, dream, and organize your home renovations and home DIY projects. When I heard about it I was like, wait, where was this when we worked on our home expansion we just completed?!
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!
DIY: Hanging cafe string lights
Since we're coming up on entertain season I wanted to post how to hang cafe string lights on steel cable wire, because I could not find any good references or good instructions online! I also will show you how to hang string lights around trees as they grow without hurting them.
Green Stripe + Lemon Theme Guest Closet
Another closet being built meant another wall to wallpaper! And here we are - after Benjamin actually said we should - and I just rolled with it. This is our closet for guests to hang clothes, any overflow, guest linens, and the access to the (new) attic crawl space - 10 feet up.
Creating a Rock Path for Drainage
This little corner that wraps around from one cement slab to the next corner was a little problem area. It got muddy, it was uneven and we weren't sure how to get from one side, to the corner that wraps around that now has the grill and a hose. Not to mention whenever I used the hose since there's no grass there (dead from all the construction work), it got insanely muddy.
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!
