Authors: terriThings are slow going in the back room addition. I'm painting all the tongue and groove boards. There are about 200 of them. Or more. Feels like more.
The Man has been working outside nailing up 2x4's around the window so that my little brother can put some aluminum or something around them to give them the framed look. The...
Ikea bathroom vanities
- Published on Wednesday, 19 October 2011
Authors: terriI love putting Ikea furniture together. It's like lego for adults. If you ever need help putting your Ikea purchases together, give me a call.
The Man needed to be picked up from the airport, so after I found him wandering around looking lost, we stopped at Ikea to pick up our bathroom vanity.
In our previous bathroom reno, we bought...

Authors: terriRenovating is such an up and down experience. It's so exciting at the beginning, before you realize it will take over your life and create such a mess. We're almost done all the insulating, which in my opinion, is the worst part of it. I can handle the mess, the lack of floors or walls, the lack of an extra bathroom with teenagers....
Blackboard Wall Diversion
- Published on Tuesday, 20 September 2011
Authors: terriI'm supposed to be working on the last wall of insulation, but I'm stalling. It's a double wall, which means, there's the original wall and then there's a newer wall built in front of it. So both parts of it needs to get some insulation stuffed into it. I am so done with that picky, itchy crap. I'm doing anything to avoid it. Such as...

Authors: terriThe Man and I had such big plans. We were going to get the vapor barrier done on the ceiling and the walls. We were going to drywall at least one wall. We were going to finish alll the insulation and he was going to build a box for the fireplace that's coming next week. Ohhh, the plans we had.
But the Man is a perfectionist. It took...

Authors: terriThe siding is ordered (and just got a call that it's in. It was supposed to take 3 weeks - it's been 3 days. We're not ready for it yet!!). The fireplace installation is booked. The 6 foot french door is coming and the little brother coming to install it has been booked. The ceiling insulation...not quite done yet.
Re-Love it week

Authors: terriMy favourite part of doing any house project is the painting. And obviously, we are no where near that part.
I'm pretty sure I'm ADD when it comes to projects - I'm great at starting and have tons of ideas, I bounce around from one project to another without quite finished them. Sooner or later the projects get finished. Might take a...
Oh the Neglect
- Published on Monday, 22 August 2011
Authors: terriWe've started to get a bit of the insulation up in the ceiling.Well, not really me, the Man. I've been super cranky and not a whole lot of fun to work with. So if I'm honest, the Man has gotten a bit of insulation up in the ceiling. We decided to put little strips of R14 along the edges of the styrofoam vents. Previously the...
