It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted anything or updated content on either the blog or entire site – if you haven’t given up on me, thank you! I’m hopeful and optimistic that the weekly post schedule should now resume. It feels as though a hundred years (and a hundred projects) have come and gone since Harvey, but it’s only been six months. If you were or continue to be affected by the hurricane, my heart goes out to you. Being a Northerner, I really had no idea how much power a storm devoid of snow could have. It’s still a surprise when I visit homes and yards and hear how things “used” to look. The devastation was all over the map – I walked through homes that had been virtually wiped out and saw trash and debris piles full of personal belongings, some irreplaceable.
The challenges on the restoration projects were numerous and demanding – insurance adjusters and claim estimates were only the beginning. I’ve finished most of my restoration work and have been able to refocus on remodels as well as the new build that was permitting the week before the storm hit.
Personal projects have seen some progress too…
The cottage wall is complete (and GORGEOUS!)
The whole house was painted – room by room shots are coming, but here is the paint scheme in the meantime:
Our builder-grade orange tone kitchen cabinets are no more…
And the CLB (Craig’s List Bed) received a facelift. It needed reconstructive surgery, but in the interest of getting it done (and out of the garage), we made do. In its place at the back of the third bay is another bed frame, this one with a history. From Laurel Mountain (via a delightful client) I’m excited to make it new again and treat it to something adorable in a twin size.
Looking forward to sharing photos and details on our recent (half a year’s worth of…) projects. If you are interested in a consultation or simply have an opinion on those paint colors, please reach out. I’d love to hear from you!
