It always makes me feel good to help people. This family has had a really rough time.

5 kids, a trailer big enough for them all but they are running out of time to move it. This is a real story of an honest family, I have been taken before so I do check on things now and make sure they are true. Does that make me a bad person??

Final Plans


Since we are not working on the sun porch or changing windows downstairs, they did not add them to the plans, I actually do have windows!!!!
What it comes down to is, taking the whole second floor off and building a new one, adding a full bathroom upstairs, moving the second story stairs and putting on a small addition to square it off . Then we change the downstairs bathroom , laundry room and added kitchen space where the addition is. The house is 30 x32 finished.

This is the side that faces the fields and will be the new view for our new master bedroom and bath!
Love this new back to my house!!!
We may put the deck from end to end so we can have a covered section.

Kitchen


Bottom cabinets are done! Finally.
Took me awhile to decide on paint color and technique
Love the difference in the just painted to final finished door!
Going to go with the shades of grey for the top cabinets.

Couldn’t decide on handles and pulls for the longest time but have chosen a leaf design, it doesn’t come in the oiled bronze but my husband knows a place that can change them for us.

Can’t wait to have it all finished, although I am very nervous about my blue being more, in your face then I wanted it to be. I am hoping with the house renovations opening up the kitchen more and adding the double glass doors, all the natural sunshine will dull that effect and it will turn out ok. Designing and decorating my own house is not very hard but nerve racking at the same time, you never know how your designs will actually turn out! It doesn’t have one style, it’s not just rustic farmhouse or country farmhouse, I guess you could say it is a country cottage rustic farmhouse? Lol I guess with all the renovations it’s not going to be a 1940 built house anymore but we are keeping the hardwood floors and nice wood wainscoting in the dining room. I guess that is the only room that will still be from the original house!, course they put 3 additions on themselves so really, what even was the original house!???

Step one Done!


We bought our house March 2017 and since then we have redone all the floors, took out a wall separating the living room and dining room, put an 6 foot bay window in, reinsulated most of the outside walls with new windows all well, made the porch into a sun porch, tore out the whole kitchen and started it over. We had to cut out ceilings in the stairways for my 6 foot son to not hit his head, lol, and bunch of other things. The main problem besides the plaster is the ceiling upstairs starts at 4 feet on one wall and gets to 7 at the other, both sides of the house, very bad for my back!!! , so we said we had to fix it.

We finally started the process,

We drew up the first set of plans yesterday and decided besides tearing off the whole roof we are also putting in a small addition to make it a completed straight four walls.

The finished house will be 30 x 32 and it will all be usable space!!!

Meaningful vs Happy


Do you have a meaningful life or a happy life?

Is there a difference, some say yes and others no.

I know I have a happy life. I have an amazing husband, great kids, house full of animals who keep me laughing and always make me feel loved when I am alone. I am hands on building the house of my dreams, as close as possible at least, and don’t have to worry about food or rent as I have in the past.

Can you have both? I struggle constantly trying to make myself better, mentally and physically. If I could have someone to tell me, how to make a small business out of my , creations, how to feel better about myself, how to be healthier and more comfortable in my own body.

Step by step, you need to do this , this and this today. Everyday. But also help me stay motivated and focused while also, building a house, being a wife, mother with responsibilities ( laundry, dishes, etc, etc,) and friend.

Do they make an app for that??

Pains of change but still the same.


I am full of things to say today! Lol

As the seasons change, so does my pain. In the summer it hurts when it rains, in the winter it hurts as it gets colder, but the pain is still the same, pain. The winter pain spreads in more places, and seems to be lot more often, it’s harder to get past then summer pain. I can get up and move to get rid of summer pain but winter pain just gets a little easier to bare. It’s strange, it’s the same pain, just different.

Humans are entirely different creatures and creations then weather and seasons but they all effect us in many ways. Before getting into medicine my son used to say I was crazy when I said it was the weather making me hurt , now he just says I’m crazy! Lol
