Day 219's update


This will probably come as a surprise to those of you who endured my whiny post about our house hunt, but we're in a contract with the very house that inspired the whining, and we close at the end of the month! We're really really excited, and think this is a good move. The market is just too good to not take advantage of, and we can't wait to delve into some improvement projects and make the house our own.

I hope we'll eventually have some dramatic before-and-after photos to show you, and I'm sure by the time this is all over you'll be pretty tired of hearing about kitchen flooring and the pros and cons of pedestal sinks. But I'm looking forward to hearing your input, readers and friends, so don't be afraid to share it! Especially you, blog-less anonymous stalkers with good taste (I'm talking to you, SM!).

Up first: the master bath. Last night's home inspection revealed a leaky sink and shower, so out goes the icky yellow and brown tile, and in comes ... well, all of our money.

congrats on home owning. i can't wait to see it and y'all when i am in town 2 weekends from now.

married? check. pet? check. house? check. you know what's next.............

Jennifer said...

next, maybe. but in the near future? not so much!

Wes loves those too, I'm partial to the under-mount sinks, so as usual, our taste is opposite (mine and Wes' that is)

what is it about all white that seduces me?! LOVE that bathroom pic. can't wait to see how yours turns out!!!

Wes said...

let's go with over-the-counter sinks. Those are awesome. Maybe I'll get to pick the stuff (I refuse to say decorate) for the guest bath since it's closest to my office anyway.

I know what's next. Bathroom renovation, dining table, manroom shelves, kitchen renovation w/ bar area, back deck with stone patio. There's a dog and fence somewhere in the middle of all that.

Go to American Home Furniture to look for furniture. If you want, Mary Byrne and I can help you put it together.

Here's a compromise. Get an above-the-counter sink for Wes, but Jen picks which one.

I think I should have a say in the guest bathroom snice, after all, that's where I'll be powdering my nose when I move on.
