house update

We have taken a major and much needed house break the last 2 weeks. After completely tearing up our house from July-September, we just needed to hit pause and have some major rest time. We needed some extra family time and honestly we were just tired!! soooo tired. Our house certainly isn't pretty at the moment but it's functional!!

Austin did manage to get our beams installed! yay! They still need a little sanding and to be stained but they are up!

The dining room is going to be ship lap. Austin has prepared all the wood. It just needs paint! We can only paint at night after the kids go to bed so it hasn't been an easy task. Hoping we can knock some painting out soon. 

We painted 6 boards and we haven't touched it since! 

This right here is another reason we haven't been as productive. We have two great helpers!! And those boys love to help. 


  1. Wow! Such a difference in so little time. You guys have exquisite taste. And speaking of taste, glad to know your Fisher liked the mummies!

  2. Wow!! It's really coming together! And I totally get being tired and needing to take a break.
