If I was to say that I have had fun remodeling my house, that would be a MASSIVE understatement! It took a fair amount of time to get it to where it is now, but I LOVE it! There were so many late nights, set backs and budget surprises, but it was well worth it all. It all came together exactly like I imagined it in my head.

When we were searching for a house to buy when we moved out here to Utah I had a pretty specific location we wanted, so it all came down to finding a good house. After searching around on Zillow.com for a number of weeks we settled on 3 different houses that had pretty much the same layout. These houses were ideal for the open layout I had envisioned for our next house. When our realtor took us to the houses however, the last house (the one we bought) was the clear winner. When we went through the other two houses I couldn’t help but notice that EVERY SINGLE ROOM needed some updating and got pretty overwhelmed. When we went through this house, all I could think was WHEW! This one is at least safe and livable the way it is.

Shortly after moving in (I believe it was less than a week later) I started calling our contractor and had him come out to look at taking down the wall between the kitchen and the living room. I also had him quote us on moving cabinets, ripping out tile and installing new baseboards, etc. He had awesome prices so I was able to do more than I thought we could.

Joel and I had the privilege of tearing down the drywall on the wall between the kitchen and livingroom -> which was a blast! we also installed our back-splash, installed the floating shelves, the new glass door over the microwave, did LOTS of painting, installed the mantle on the fireplace, and many more projects. It kept us busy to say the least, but I’ll say it again, it was worth it!! Here are some of the before and afters

Anyway! All the stars finally aligned and we were able to keep the kitchen/living room clean long enough to get a few shots. It’s been fun thinking up ideas and watching them come to pass. Hope this can inspire your own home-reno thoughts!
