We will be making this not well maintained and nearly one hundred year old house into an updated new home. With four boys under eight and a tight budget this will be a pretty difficult task. We did a full remodel with our last home but it was half the size, we had two less children and the home was less than fifteen years old. We feel crazy but excited and we are looking forward to the end result!

Our biggest challenge is going about normal life while undertaking this huge project. You will likely see kids in almost every picture because there is always a kid following me even when I try to take pictures. Fortunately the kids do not seem to mind and they’re enjoying the beautiful yard and neighborhood. Our block has almost forty children and our next door neighbors have children the same age as ours.

Our last home had similar challenges, maintaining normal life through chaos, but was a smaller project. This was the exterior transformation from our first house:

The interior of our old home was completely redone as well. I will likely share those photos in a post at some point. For now, I plan to focus on the process of our current project that will hopefully turn into a comfortable home. I am not a photographer so the pictures aren’t exceptional but I am trying to document our project and share some ideas. I will share the products that we have found helpful, not endorsing anything just sharing what has worked for us.
