Deck Construction

lauren bell

Hey all! We've been busy launching into this thing full-time! Thanks for being patient with us on this blog! 

We've been building this great deck for a customer. I love being able to sit in the backyard while our littles play when its cool out. These customers wanted that same thing! We built their deck using treated wood so it will last a long time. We're eager to see how they finish it but they are already making use of it! I can't wait to get ours built so we can enjoy dinner parties in the moonlight.

25% of our online business profits yearly go to clean water/world hunger relief. Because of your purchases and support last year, we were able to donate $400 to Action Against Hunger. Thank you for all of your support and we hope we're able to give even more this year. 

Thank you!!

Playroom Remodel - Demo, Replacement, and Exterior Finish

lauren bell

Our biggest project to date is our playroom. It was an addition that was eventually closed-in and was in really rough shape. It was swarming with bugs due to it not being sealed the way it should be. It was incredibly drafty due to the 9 windows and a door that encased the walls. It has T-11 siding as walls and is poorly insulated. My dream was when we purchased our home - floor to ceiling bookshelves on one wall (cabinets even in the bottom half so we can store toys/crafts/homeschool items) and a big set of double french doors leading out to our backyard. We ordered the doors from Jeld-Wen custom. I learned, during this process, that I was extremely picky about the doors I wanted. We started demo with the outside wall and replaced with Hardie Lap Siding - take a look at those windows and the replacements

We finished the exterior replacement and interior drywall. We've got doors in and everything sealed up. We moved on to the outside lap siding by James Hardie. It's my favorite stuff for sure. It makes SUCH a difference in the way our home looks. (We've slowly replaced a couple areas on our exterior with the Hardie - and eventually the rest of the siding on our home will be replaced too). We finished it off with some paint - Dovetail by Sherwin Williams. Such a great view now. So excited about the way this place is starting to look!
