About five years ago, Mr. R. and I bought our first house together, a small foreclosure situated on nearly an acre and a half of land.
It was in decent shape for having sat vacant for a number of years. One improvement we made immediately was putting down cheap apartment-grade carpet, replacing the stained, nasty carpet that was there.
Now that a few years have passed, we’ve amassed a considerable amount of equity. So in the last couple of weeks, we’ve embarked on a new adventure–RENOVATION!
Our plan includes remodeling the kitchen, both bathrooms, and laying hardwood throughout the common areas.
I’m so stoked! Having already met with Bob, the bathroom guy, last night we got together with Ray, the kitchen guy. We picked out cabinets, pulls, and counters.
Over the next few months, we’re going to bring our little house into the 21st century, freeing it from all its builder-grade mediocrity.
I hope you all come along for this ride–it should be lots of fun! 🙂
