all about the renovation of our 100-year-old home.
My husband and I, along with our four small children, live in a 1919 foursquare in Fort Worth, Texas. We have been renovating it for six years, and yes, we have lived in it the whole time! Chapter by chapter, while dealing with white dust and blocking off parts of the house in plastic sheeting, our adventures are chronicled here.
Hello! I am excited to be a Guest Participant in the Spring 2016 One Room Challenge! We are always working on a project - or five - around here, but sometimes I feel we have a bit of a "cobbler has no shoes" issue. I finish client projects, and they turn out so lovely, and I think, "I could live in just this room", ha, and truthfully, I lose steam on my own home. We have lived in our nearly 100-year-old fixer upper for 5 years now, and we have come a long, long way, but we still have many rooms to complete. We have had to do so much work on the "underbelly" of our house - plumbing, roof, plaster, etc. - that we are really just now into the decorating part. Which of course, is the fun part. Having the Kids Bathroom done has been so so amazing, it really felt like our home renovation reached a milestone when that project was complete.
