Creating Something Out of Something

Howdy, pawdnahs! So today's a kind of short post to close up our history of September 2008. First I wanted to share with you our first picnic on our balcony which took place on 9-27-08:         Then the weekend came and we broke down the exterior wall in our master bedroom (as you saw ... see more >>

Breaking it ALL Down

So, I'm wondering how many of you like my little series of titles we've had recently. It kind of started by chance, but then I decided to go with it. I'm thinking this will be the last one with a title like this because when you do any one thing too much it starts to get old, and I have a really bad habit of doing things like telling ... see more >>

Homing it ALL Up

Now that we got all our stuff over to our house, we had to do some "homing it up" (making our house feel a bit more like home, or at least livable anyway). So the next day, we just kind of put stuff in its place. And we didn't exactly finish by the time these photos were taken: *Please note, I'm better with construction than I am with ... see more >>

Moving It ALL In

If you're new to One House, One Couple, you may want to Start at the beginning. In this post, you will get to see the apartment we came from... the ridiculously tiny 440 sq. ft. apartment. After two weekends of working on the house, we realized it was going to take forever to finish one room only going over to the house on the weekends. ... see more >>

Working it ALL out

I don't know what was wrong with me during this portion of my life. I am a huge planner. I plan everything in life, and in extreme detail. And I mean extreme detail, with lots of lists and drawings and everything. It may have been the fact that I had spent the last entire year planning a wedding that made me lose my mind. I guess I couldn't ... see more >>

Keys and Karpet

Our weekends consist of Monday and Tuesday, so on Tuesday, September 2, 2008, we were handed the keys to our new house. It was a very exciting moment in our lives (as it is for most people). Oh the pride of owning a home:                                   So ... see more >>

The Full Tour – Part Seven – In Conclusion

Today marks the final day of what we've been calling "The Ugly House Tour". It is a day that will live in infamy. Maybe we shouldn't go that far, but after today this blog is going to take a bit of a turn in another direction as we get on into the nitty-gritty of things that happened in this stage of our lives, rather than just looking ... see more >>

The Full Tour – Part Six – Almost Done

If you're joining us for the first time, Start at the Beginning. By now you're probably used to walking down that steep driveway, right? No one fell off the edge on the way down, did they? Okay, just checking. As long as everyone's safe, we'll now continue our tour with part six: The Odds and Ends of the Exterior. Just to let you ... see more >>

The Full Tour – Part Five

Hey y'all, Hope you had a nice relaxing weekend. Is your Christmas tree up yet? Kyle has Mondays and Tuesdays off work so we went to the local Christmas tree farm last Monday and did all our decorating that day. I find that if you put on Christmas music it makes the experience that much more Christmassy! I think the 11's and 12's ... see more >>

The Full Tour – Part Four

Welcome back to One House, One Couple, where it only takes one couple to transform one ugly house into a beautiful home. If you're here for the first time, Start at the Beginning. We're continuing on with our tour, so wipe your feet because I just cleaned the floors! ;) After going up the stairs, we head straight into the master ... see more >>
