An Introduction


Some History...

Philip bought his Oma's condo almost 2 years ago, it was wall to wall beige carpeting and walls, with a splash of pink on the lovely velvet sofas. After almost a year of work and some serious nail hole patching, we had an entirely new place.

We got married August 2011 and moved into our freshly renovated condo. With the wedding money we decided to move forward with a kitchen renovation, making our condo complete.



The Present...

A year and a half later, after making some major condo improvements, we're ready for the next challenge. On July 30th we got possession of our new-to-us, fixer upper.  Grandpa Joe's house is so wonderfully 60s and more than ready for a facelift.



We're hoping that this blog can force us to document our progress and share the adventure. We're new to all of this, but by the end fully intend to be handier than the offspring of Bob the Builder & Bob Vila (although I'm pretty sure that he drives a bulldozer, and I don't know that we'll ever reach that level of skill).

We finally exited the Stone Age upon having our internet hooked up, so we're a little bit behind on starting this blog and there will certainly be some posts about what's been started/completed so far, but at least that means we can post regularly with a little backlog of to-do's completed). Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment with a link to your own blog so we can do some reading and hear all about the projects that you're working on as well!

  3. I'm just glad it's you and not me. Good luck and looking forward to what it'll look like in 20 years. Or was it a 25-year project? ;)
