almost 7 years ago to the day, we bought this sweet lil casa on heather road. although charming from the curb, she was an absolute hot mess that soaked up the better part of our free time and definitely all of our dollars during those first few years as newlyweds. we touched every single square foot within her stone walls and then some. and i’m not exagerating when i say we. we made a good team with the additional help from family and friends. i designed and paul executed. nothing was off limits, everything was modernized and some things even fell on the list twice during our run. but damn it, she was so well worth it! and in the end she proved to be the coziest cave in a teeny forest that served the growth of our little family just perfectly.
