Project House

on march 31, 2014 we broke ground on a {huge} house renovation – you can see the post here. when we originally bought the house we knew the full, unfinished basement would be perfect for a large renovation. for us this has meant adding more space, specifically: two bedrooms, a bathroom, laundry/utility room, & a master suite.

UPDATE: we unofficially moved back in (just into the upstairs) at the end of july. we were able to sneak in some work on the nursery in early august, & officially moved into the new space the day we brought Eloise home (august 11, 2014)!
