BOTB 8.8.14

Friday, August 8th, 2014

Weekend greetings! We’re making more progress on the house this week, the carpet installation and new baseboards have made it move in ready, we’re excited! Only one more week left to work on this renovation, we will be installing new light fixtures and bringing a few furnishings inside. Then we will return to California since the kids are back to school the following week and I’m looking forward to getting back to a more normal routine – I’ll share another progress report on the reno before we depart.

It’s ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ Friday again, and this week Amanda and I bring you our favorite projects spied around the web.

Hello friends! The renovation craziness continues this week, we’ve been driving all over this town in search of carpet and window installation quotes. One thing there is no shortage of in this town is shopping, oh my Las Vegas I love you for your abundance of selections… the trick is to narrow down what we’re looking for as quickly as possible to keep this project moving….. much to do! I’ll share more updates next week, so far the updates are progressing somewhat according to plan.

This weekend, Amanda and I bring you another round of our favorite projects spied out among the talented DIY community in the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ series, tour a dining room remodel at Oh Happy Day.
