The Row House

The Road Guy’s Room

Every night, we sit in Henry’s room and make forts and play with his favorite animals, Hal and Mr. Polar Bear!

 

We were playing the other night and I said to Mark, “I can’t believe this room was such an ugly space filled with tons of junk and now it’s one of our favorite rooms in the house!

Before he was born, Henry’s room started out as a catch-all space when we were renovating this house.

It stayed like that for awhile and we just always kept the door closed and ignored it. HA!!

When we found out I was pregnant, we got to work making it into a baby’s room.

Since we didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl, we went with a neutral, gray and brown palette.

It was a simple space to do. Some new drywall, paint and a fresh carpet did the trick.

I love how it turned out. Henry calls it the “Road Guy’s Room” and absolutely loves it!

It’s Ugly But It’s PROGRESS!

I know we all prefer to look at pretty pictures, but SO MUCH of the home renovation process is ugly.

To us, the ugly pictures mean PROGRESS!

We had a company come in this week and put spray foam insulation through the whole house.

We felt it was the best decision in terms of energy saving costs for heating and cooling a home of this size.

Now that the spray foam is in, we have a little bit more of electrical work to complete and then we’ll be able to drywall!

I remember when the drywall went in at our first renovation, it just really made us feel that we were getting close to the end!

Birthday Boy!

My husband is not the same person I married.

For one, I did not know he was so good at demo-ing houses.

He never told me he knew how to build stud walls.

Nor did he share that he could hang drywall…

And mud and tape it.

He knows how to wire a house for electrical.

And he built me a brand new kitchen.

Oh…and he’s also passing all this good stuff on to our son.

Happy birthday babe! You make life fun and you are easy to love!
