As I announced last week, we just bought our first home! This means that we are going to be crazy busy with packing, moving, and making the new house a home. I plan to share my progress right along side any problems we have along the way. We are heading into uncharted territories, and it should be an entertaining ride.
To keep the Home DIY projects distinct from the craft/décor projects, I am instituting The Mad House. This section of the blog will hold all of our attempts at fixing up the new house without losing what’s left of our minds.
Already on the docket:
Removing wallpaper from several rooms Painting the entire interior of the house Steam cleaning the carpets
- Replacing a broken window
Fixing the porch railing
- Re-roofing the house
- Re-caulking the backsplash/counter
Landscaping and gardening Re-wiring outlets
- Re-wiring the garage door opener
And that’s just what I could think of today! Some of these projects we will attempt on our own, and others we will be bringing in help from people who actually know what they are doing.
