Hello Beautiful! https://www.instagram.com/p/BbBKpqngryu/?taken-by=twopitsinapod_adventures When it came to our floors, we decided to carpet the bedrooms and loft space, run hardwood as the main floor, and then tile the kitchen and bathrooms. Being somewhat newbies (I've laid tile before but this was my hubby's first time), but determined to get our hands dirty *literally!* we set … Continue reading Tile Love.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BXIw1rFgbCK/?taken-by=twopitsinapod_adventures Well we figured if we could carefully remove the reclaimed wood - and we did! Then with help from Youtube and our awesome builder; who was kind enough to lend his tools and some understanding. We set to work! Starting in the middle of the room Hubby laid his first line of wood, both … Continue reading Reclaimed Hardwood Floors!
Have you ever wondered what it was like to rip out an old hardwood floor? Well let me just tell you, IT'S HARD! As in back breaking, wrist wrenching, a million body squats later and you're finished. Sound fun? Well funny story, last summer when we were in the process of closing on our new … Continue reading 1960 Hardwood Oak Floors
So our house was delayed... For THESE! Although we tried to stay in our building budget, we definitely blew it a bit on our handrails. Being such a major focal point for the house, and not really wanting to deal with something that scratched easily we opted for custom rails. And these are awesome! We … Continue reading Custom Rails.
Well no surprise I'm super behind on posting! Sorry guys, a lot has happened since our post a month ago. For one, the drywall went up and then texture!

I've got to be honest though, we … Continue reading Texture and Paint!
With the arrival of summer we've found ourselves in heaven. The home build couldn't be going better! This is what we've been waiting for. Cool nights, hot days, a gentle breeze and of course the amazing sunshine! We're back to not minding our trailer life so much and seeing the progression of the house is … Continue reading Building our Dream.
It was a bad bug couple of days. Please hide your eyes if mild language causes you to cringe. Remember my wonderful cedar shower? My heaven, oasis, secret getaway? It all started here.
Where have we been? Building of course! https://www.instagram.com/p/BUhXrrzg1yE/?taken-by=dzdogadventures Thanks to my handy hubby working hard to fill our steep driveway, we were able to bring in the trusses! It's getting exciting! It's slowly coming together, and we're super excited as we watch it go up!
It's time, time to frame!! To say that we are getting excited is an understatement, we are more than ready to move out of our little 18 foot home. Tiny house people? I just don't get it, maybe you could explain it to me. But I miss having a full sized kitchen for entertaining, and … Continue reading The Skeleton of Our Home.
It's been awhile, can you guess what we're up to now? The Subfloor Went In! We also dug our utility Lines from the well house to the house. For the utility lines we did as much with the backhoe as we could, however due to the steepness of our hillside we had to finish the … Continue reading Subfloor Time!
