Our property is covered in big beautiful trees. As the weather is getting nicer we've started to take down the trees on our property that are either dead/dying/or over crowded. This tree, we weren't initially going to bother. Unfortunately turns out the tree was basically standing hollow, and was literally rotten to the core. https://www.instagram.com/p/BgfMkexAvUD/?taken-by=twopitsinapod_adventures … Continue reading Rotten To The Core.
On a break, that's where. Since moving into the house we decided that we were done. At least for a while, with house projects. Things have however been slowly coming into order around here. We installed our ceiling lights in the kitchen/dining room. Hubby did a fantastic job just based on a pinterest picture (that's … Continue reading Where Have We Been?
Happy New Year! So I know I'm way behind on posting, but that's just what you get when you go full time at work, play hard with dogs to keep them happy, have little to no daylight when you get home, and try to hit the gym. Seriously, I need to get my schedule … Continue reading Our Year In a Video. 2017

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.

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! The dogs are loving their new house! https://www.instagram.com/p/BWfk12kghoa/?taken-by=twopitsinapod_adventures Shortly after the texture was done, the paint went up! 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.
