The original intent

When I created this blog, it was to chronicle the last "flip" we did. I took pictures and walked through just about every stage in the remodeling and selling of our last house. Hence my blog title : Doingflips
Then Levi came, and the blog focus shifted. Well, as of yesterday, we are now homeowners again!!!!!
Holy Moly and not a moment too soon!!!!!!!!!

So, this blog is going to resemble it's original intent, minus the selling part. We are keeping this one.

Oh, I'm in love.

With a house.

This house.

It's not perfect.

It's not grand.

It's not huge.

It's not even large.

It's small.

It's quaint.

It's outdated.

It's a bit ugly.


It has some huge flaws. So do I! The perfect house must be made... not bought. So, I will do my best to work with these flaws. The difference now is that we have ZERO money to do this with!!!

Let's see how far some creativity (and by creativity I mean doing projects that I have found on other people's blogs and in magazines), and some paint and a bit of moulding can get us.

Some pictures of the outside: The backyard and the trees are what sold us on the house:

Wanna see some ideas for the inside of the house?? Do ya?? The following are examples of my Obession with powerpoint, and my mind not being able to stop racing with ideas. I have to draw them out. And since I can't draw worth a flip, I do what I can with my powerpoint skills.

Here is what I have planned for the front living room:

Another angle of the front living room:

Our Masterbedroom.

I always have plans. They seem to never come together the way I originally thought - but it always seems to work out ok.

Stay Tuned!!!! :-)
