Oh man, it’s been a minute, hasn’t it. Fun reminder–as I discovered while working on the living room–with a house like this, you don’t really get to go room by room, but you kind of work on all of them at once and nothing ever gets finished and everything gets dirtier and more covered with … Continue reading Update #3: The Bedroom
I’m going to tag along with Megan’s quick post about the floor and do a short one on “The Wall.” This particular project was one of the biggest unknowns we had to tackle. It was a clearly rotten wall, but the big question was, “what is causing the rot?” Rot is a tricky beast, and … Continue reading “The Wall” Saga
Hi everyone, and welcome to our shortest update yet. I think my last post pretty much explained everything that needs to be known about the living room, but I had to share the final before/after photos of the living room, because after 2 days and 3 coats of floor finish, we have preserved the old … Continue reading Mini Update: A FINISHED Floor!
Hi everyone! Sorry for the looooong delay–I wanted to save posts for once we’d actually FINISHED a project, but everything is taking longer than expected. (Well…. okay, longer than *I* expected.

So I’ll step up to the mic for a minute and tell you a little bit about how we … Continue reading A Series of Unfortunate Events
Hey hey team, welcome back! One thing I’m particularly excited about is that the PB House sits on six acres of land. Sure, most of it is some kind of conservation land that is totally impassable once the wetland plant life grows up over the summer, BUT there is still plenty of space for us … Continue reading Update #1: Garden Plots
Hi friends! Hello and welcome! We got the keys about two weeks ago, and Rio’s been making regular visits and check ups on the property. Already there are several big details that need work. The first is that the whole property is in kind of a gulch where all the neighborhood trash gets blown on … Continue reading An Introductory Post about Messes and Meeting the Neighbors
