This summer we celebrated 10 years in our home.
When we moved in a decade ago, there was no way to know our life trajectory. But now, 2 kids, several flocks of chickens, and lots of renovations later, we are happy with our path.
Without professional help, we have refinished almost every floor in the house (and laid a couple new ones!), two bathroom renovations, and built a laundry room. But the list continues, especially as we now typically accomplish day-long, not week-long, projects. We haven’t yet gotten to a kitchen renovation. And while we started the summer with big plans for a new patio, we currently have a big hole in the backyard where as far as we got was busting up old concrete. Our redesigns and rehabs are on more of an extended timetable these days, but we are always working to make this space more of what we need it to be, and to reflect the current version of ourselves.
We are looking forward to the next decade here as a family.
