Grandma’s house is officially OUR HOUSE! Before and after gallery!

Welcome to our brand new website! For those of you who followed along the way thank you for all of your wonderful support and comments. Don’t worry, the old site is still there (The Renovation of my Grandma’s House) I will keep it forever as our own digital scrap book!

My entire life I dreamed of an old white farm house on the Hubbard prairie with its ancient lilacs and foot prints left by cows and horses and simpler times. I had no idea it was always right here waiting for me. Waiting for us. When I lost my last grandparent (my grandma Charlotte) we all wondered what would happen to her place but in my heart of hearts I knew it was calling me. Moving in to this place (My grandma’s house) finally, after fifteen months of renovation, was one of the very best days of my life. It was amazing and, because its been over a year since I packed up most of my stuff, it was also like Christmas times a hundred!

Oh how I missed all of my random crap! We got everything in here into its designated rooms and sat down and just sat in silence together for a long time. The air was filled with the stunned words of, “Wow, we made it, baby.” I wake up still just in awe of what we accomplished, of what just two little people can do when they put their minds to something. It is everything I had ever hoped for and so much more. I can’t wait to show you our home and how we did so much of all of this, I hope it will inspire you on your own adventures along the way!

Now, without further adieu, the before and afters of the entire house!
