Another almost complete room

Our shower is complete except for a door/curtain! After watching one too many home improvement shows, I decided I wanted subway tile in our shower. I've never tiled before so I had no idea how time consuming it was going to be! I was definitely surprised! I was able to get about half way finished, but because of time, we had a friend come over and help finish it.

An Almost Complete Kitchen

Looking into the kitchen

Awesome sliding shelves in pantry

Sliding spice rack

Glass Cabinet

Our farmhouse sink...Thanks Ween for flying it out for us :)The dishwasher will have a custom panel like the cabinets.

Pot and Pan drawers. They are huge!

Rubbish and Recycling, plus the wine rack!

The bar...and beautiful flowers from Rush :)

If you know me, you would know the kitchen remodel has been the most important to me. I love spending time cooking and baking! Plus, it always seems like people end up hanging around in the kitchen during get-togethers. Our kitchen is definitely small, but with the design and layout it doesn't seem so tiny. It opens up directly to the living room and built in bench kitchen nook. (Rush is currently painting the bench so I'll post pictures when it's complete)

Sneak Peek -- Bathroom

Yesterday was a big day for us! Every time we walk in the house and look around, you can definitely see all the changes and start seeing an almost finished home. This renovation has kept us very busy, but we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. This weekend we will be finishing up our bathroom but here is a sneak peak of what was installed yesterday. 


The first vanity came with the house so we knew we were definitely getting rid of that! Once I learned how to really use power tools, I decided I wanted to start building furniture. Thanks to, I built the vanity bottom. The only problem after that was trying to figure out what to put on top! Luckily, our friend Josh that did our amazing concrete countertops ( came to the rescue. Once the bathroom is complete I'll post the final pictures.

The long awaited Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes

For those of you that know Rush, you understand his need for chocolate chip banana pancakes. Of course it has been a little difficult to have a big variety of meals because of the house being renovated. This past weekend we finally were able to put boxes away and use our range! Rush couldn't wait for his pancakes!
