Um, wow, it's been a while since I've updated here, nearly 9 months. That's long enough to grow a person!

Speaking of growing a person, that's the biggest thing on the DIY list at the blue house on the corner right now. Yup, I'm knocked up. 17 weeks and counting.

the little one at 12 weeks

So, as you can imagine, we've got quite the deadline for the many many many projects we've got on the go. I'll try my best to stay more up to date with the blog, as we should be getting a lot of work done over the next 23 weeks. The next few posts will be a lot of catch up from where we last left off with finishing the floors.

So, in the coming days look forward to posts about:

- the backroom/fireplace
- adding faux wainscotting to the dining room

- painting stripes on the walls in the smaller guest room
- replacing the giant window in the old sitting room with a smaller counter height window for the kitchen
- kitchen plans
- how not to hang frames on a photo wall
- tiling the kitchen
- building cabinets

and much much more as we work our way through the house!

I can't guarantee they'll come in order, and I can't promise I won't throw in a post or two about what's happening in the house right now, but, I will try to be better!


  1. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you two.

    I'm also really happy you came back to the blog. I was really loving the progress of your house. I can't wait to see it all done!
