With 2012 having already begun, it is time to get back in the saddle when it comes to blogging. We had quite a hiccup to our plans for fixing up the house this last spring when we found out we needed to spend our current reno budget, along with next year's budget, on a new roof. Turns out a total tear off on a ranch house can be quite expensive, especially with a wonky roof line and valleys needing extra work. It was enough to make both my head and chest ache when we got the first quote. However, it all worked out in the end and we now have a fabulous, leak free, 40 year shingled roof.
While we are so happy with the new roof, what it really meant was all of our other projects, like finishing the living room, installing new trim and baseboards, along with starting a number of other projects, like the master bedroom, had to be put on hold. It also meant that my DIY/craft project budget also got cut waaaay back.
So the summer and fall were spent in the garden and not working on the house.
But with the holidays over, we have started to rebuild our reno budget and are getting ready to tackle a number of projects. Plus I have about a million things pinned in Pinterest that I want to try to make. So join us as we jump back in the reno saddle...
