A big leap on the project front

Justin and I have been busy finishing projects these last few weeks and not blogging much about it so this is going to be a lot of progress in a single post.

In early March, we got busy sanding and painting the doors that we found at Second Use, a local salvage store. This store has been a gold mine for us in the door arena...we really scored some awesome deals. Justin got a good buy from Compton Lumber for building the door frames for these doors and prepping for the door hardware.

Here's the man making sure he has a smooth finish.

These doors really finish the room and hiding all of our storage.

Our future bathroom is to the left and our workshop to the right.

This week, I stayed home from work to host the carpet installers. This took a couple of hours and voila! we had a finished space.

Tink is making herself comfortable. The room was so different with a concrete floor but now looks cozy and complete...minus the furniture.

 Another view. Check out those curves.

This weekend was delightful. We had sunny weather--enough for short sleeves and the first outdoor bicycle ride of the season.  Justin and I spent some quality time cleaning up the yard and filling up the yard waste bin.

 We redid this corner with coniferous shrubs that should be a better fit for the space. The previous plants had outgrown the plot.

The side garden is coming in nicely.

I love seeing what you've done with your home. Great way to document it for you and your family as well. You motivate me to make some changes around my own home.
