Sooo.. we did a thing. Again.
(Remeber the Crack House? If not, go see!)
If you can, just watch this; I'll explain.
And if you can't watch that, then the tl;dw edition is as follows:
We're renovating another house! Funnily enough it's a house with the exact same floor plan as our own, so this is like going back in time 15 years and redoing our own place again. We'll be moving walls, gutting bathrooms, the works.
Along the way John & I plan to show you our progress and even do some tutorials on useful homeowner-type stuff, like how to replace a toilet or change out a ceiling fan. Beyond that, let me know what you want to see! We're doing almost all of the work ourselves, so your options include everything from laying laminate flooring, tile work, installing doors and hardware, electrical wiring, faucets & tile patching, and even the more decorative aspects like how to pick cohesive paint colors and fixtures - plus money-saving tips so you can see how we do it all on a minuscule budget. (Right now our budget is about $5,000 for the entire house. MINUSCULE, I say!)
I'm hoping to take some of the fear out of home projects, show you how fun and rewarding it can be to tackle some things yourself.
Normally we'd blow out a project like this in a few weeks, but between running both blogs, new kitten care, and con season just revving up, I think it's going to take us a little longer than that.
That said, my next update will have a fun time lapse of us sledge-hammering a giant wall, so stay tuned for plenty of power tools and shenanigans.
Now, tell us what we should film next!
Quick Safety Post-Script: John and I are former professional handymen (handypeople?) and faux finishers with years of construction site experience. I promise we know what we're doing. We'll also only be filming tutorials for things a homeowner can and should do herself. Pinky swears. So, cool? Cool.
