The Finish Line is in Sight!

With each of our projects, we go through months of mess, decision overload and extended schedules.  There's always a point in the project when it just doesn't seem like it will ever be done.

And then, suddenly, we turn a corner and it all starts to come together.  This past week we hit some big milestones and had that 'ah-ha' moment.  Here are a couple of the highlights:

-  The brick porch steps got repointed and they look like new.  The guys got rid of the 2x4 supports and installed new columns.   With the punch of red on the front door, the new porch is really making a statement on the front of the house!

-  The last of the tile is grouted and it's all complete.  We used some different patterns and designs in this house and love how they look.

-  Getting rid of the naked light bulbs that were hanging out of the ceiling was a big step.  The team from Elldee Electric got all our fixtures installed.  I do love light fixtures!!!!  And these are pretty distinctive, what do you think?

So we're not at the finish line yet, but we're getting close!  We have a few more items on the punch list and will start staging soon!
Pin It


  1. I don't know why, but this project seemed to go faster than the others (probably not to you guys, I'm sure). Can't wait to see how it all comes together. Have you found the next project yet?

    1. You're right Candice, to us it seems like FOREVER!!! But if I look back, we only started in January. To add an entire second story as well completely redo the first floor - I guess it was pretty fast!!!

      I hope to have new pics of the finished rooms soon! And as always, thanks for reading!


  2. Your renovation looks great! I have a question about the library sconce from restoration hardware, if you have time. How did you wire that? I'd like to order these sconces but I don't like the cord that drops down and would need to be plugged in. I'd really appreciate your input.


    1. Our electrician was able to take the plug off and hardwire it directly into the wall. It's an easy change and since there is a knob on the fixture for dimming, it works great!!!

      Best of luck on your project!
