A new year has us thinking about resolutions. There are the usuals--losing weight, be a better person, blah, blah, blah. And, of course, we have a list of things for the house. This year, we have to do some practical (boring) things, but we have some exciting plans for the garden. Since we always love a good makeover, we thought we would share some of the changes we made to Hound House since we purchased the home in September of 2014.
One thing you should know about us is that when we begin a project, we move pretty fast. The speed and efficiency is mostly thanks to Collin! He is a planner and a list-checker. Within four months we had the interior of the house pretty much where we wanted it. Ten rooms of wallpaper stripped, carpet in a couple of bedrooms ripped out, the kitchen completely overhauled, the entire house painted...that all happened in the first few days we owned the house. Collin was waiting at the house with a contractor while I was at the closing. As soon as I texted that the papers were signed, they got to work.
While there were many stressful moments, there was also a lot of excitement, valuable lessons learned, and an end result we are proud of. That said, with us, I'm not sure there is ever an end, "to be continued" is more like it.
After having a glimpse at some of the changes we made to the house you might be wondering about our design inspirations and process. We'll share about those in our next post along with some helpful design tips from Collin.
