Your home is a haven. When it comes to building the perfect house, you need to be open to taking suggestions. Renovations are quite common when it …Home Builders: Your Key to Unlocking the Best Home Renovation Experience
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!!!
This is our now , Sun porch. We changed out the regular door with a set we bought used and put 2 of them here. If necessary the second door will open but only if it has to be. The third ” door” we turned into a window on the opposite wall that originally had nothing. That does not move. Lol then we took out all the ceiling boards and found just lots of just waste so took it all out and insulated ceiling. It adds about a foot of extra space on one side but makes a huge difference. Now I need to get something to cover them up when it gets really hot but it helped with oil this past winter!!!
My husband and I decided to do a live edge accent wall in the living room, we did it like a big puzzle, I haven’t decided what oil I want to use as a finish or how flat I want I want the look to be but, after lots of cutting and rearranging, this is the result.
I know the Home Depot is everywhere and have been reading nothing but bad reviews about the customer service area. My husband and I went in to get a dishwasher on sale and while leaving saw a refrigerator marked half off. We asked why and was told they didn’t have room for it, it had an upgraded model. Ok, makes sense. On coming home the more I thought about it the more I wanted to change the dishwasher color to match the fridge, so we went in on Friday night and called Sunday morning to ask about changing the color. I was sent to three different extensions and no body had a clue! Was finally told the appliance manager would b in Monday and would get back to me. Nope. Hubby called and after being redirected a bunch of times was told, oh, she didn’t work today!. Ok so now it’s Tuesday, no call, hubby calls and again, go through people to find one who says she will personally write a message to the manager and make sure she returns our call first thing. Nope. So now it’s Wednesday and I’m thinking any chance of it being possible is gone now but so irritated by the customer service I’m going to stick with it. Hubby calls asks for a manager and the one he is given to has no idea on any of it , he is the warehouse manager or something??? Hubby kinda blows, they connect him to someone and at this point we are saying, you ARE going to either change the color or just order another one in the color I want and keep the other in store. The woman totally agrees with us, says she didn’t understand any of the run around and she was personally doing it at that moment while on the phone. Ok. Great. Was going to have to wait a couple ex days but, it was done.
I worked in customer service for years, it was my thing, people, resolving issues and making sure the customer is happy. That is supposed to be the foundation in every company, so what’s with Home Depot?
Now I am looking at this fridge and very nervous, I swear it has crumbs in it, it looks used to me, not just a display model. They say they don’t do that, they do not resell, hmmmmmm.
It is with great emotion that I tell you, I was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. They immediately started on removing it. I had two different proceedings done and after my second , they say it’s all gone!
I am STILL remodeling my house, still planning a backyard wedding for October 14 and then this, I was more frustrated that I had to remain in bed for a week than anything else! Lol it just never crossed my mind they would fail. I was just not worried, I new, I just had that feeling inside that it was all going to be ok and they would get rid of it all. I was in bed with no problems for the first three days, then on day four I moved around a bit, day five- more and on day 6 was put back to bed rest. Pushed it. Yesterday was day one week and I’m still trying to be easy but it’s so hard with everything else going on.
I still have a , I guess u could say, dormant mass inside my intestines that has just stayed there, not changing, not growing, not doing anything. It’s been there for a few years and the concern has always been with major surgery and how my body would handle it. This was not a major surgery but it was still pretty invasive, I think I handled it just fine. The Dr don’t want to mess with it if they don’t have to, I can see y.
I start with a new primary care next week and am very excited. I have been dealing with so much unknown that it’s got me frustrated, I’m hoping a new set of eyes will finally find me some answers.
We bought our first thing for the house!!! The closing date is still the 24 but at this point unless a freak thing happens it is ours!!! This may be silly to you but this is a first for me so I wanted to share with you our new door!!!
This is what I decided on my kitchen floor, now as you know, we bought a house. The closing is coming up now and we need to do floors b 4 we move in. The kitchen is actually the one place I do not need a floor, lol, but we are going to try to reduce the hardwood already in the dining room and lay some in the living room. The kitchen is the major huge remodel so it’s were my brain mostly is.
Just some quick before pics so u remember the space. The dining room is hardwood under all that old carpet glue and stuff. The kitchen has this down now which will due till we are ready to remodel the whole place but I want to make sure the floor going from the brown wood dining room to the grey wood kitchen will look ok.
Then being the awesome man he is, he brought me home a bunch of tile samples and with that added to stuff I have I decided to do my own mosaic backsplash.
I have some plain blue broken glass from a casserole dish plus whites, Grey’s and blue tiles and I’m going to just keep collecting!!! I’m so excited. I’m thinking the top cabinets will be white distressed and the bottom a distressed blue. The counter itself we haven’t decided on yet. We are taking wood pieces, like paint sticks, and putting them on the doors for a better look, taking out that ugly paneling on top and putting up a bigger molding to that and some for under the cabinets get the high end look. I may make that a shelf if possible and put some of my blue glass there.
So much to do, we have, a dining room chandelier we are going to make our own version of, we are leaving the wood in the dining room and painting on the top , the living room will be the sage green like David likes and then I want the dining room to the it all together but I just haven’t decided on the color yet.
So, downstairs of my house with all the beautiful wood will be colbolt blue, sage green, grey and white. I think…..
