Breaking Ground

It's official. We are adding on to our home. The demolition has begun.

It's going to be an interesting 3 months {yea right, more like 6...we know how these contractors work!} but we are thrilled & excited to get more space.

I'm most excited about a washer and dryer in the house- not in the dark, scary basement only accessible via outside. Picture cold winter nights when you just finish taking a hot shower, hair wet, pj's on and then it hits you 'crap, I forgot to transfer the clothes'. Or the summer nights when you are dodging spider webs and praying and hoping a snake doesn't come out of the wood works.

I know, if this is all I have to complain about life isn't so bad, but you get my frustration, right? Regardless, it's going to be fun. Remind me of this in 3 months when we're in marriage counseling on how to survive living together! {reminder - my husband is extremely OCD}. 

In all seriousness, I'm very grateful we have the opportunity to take on this project and I know it will be fun to document the progress throughout.

So here we go. I forgot to take a picture before.

Day 1 after Digging:

Here's to hoping Finn can survive her backyard being all shredded to pieces. She is a little confused why she is hanging out in her crate so much this week and her mom & dad are already worn out by her excess night time energy, but we're working on what to do with the pup day at a time.

Until next time,


  1. Good look with the project, this is very exciting. I reccomend looking into a doggie day care for Fin!

  2. Good luck, Catie! Off to a good start! I'm excited about watching the progress.
