Our house built in 1900 was updated with a few pieces of hardware and tech that can be controlled and checked on no matter how far away we are. These changes needed to be made no matter what but having a tiny human to protect has brought home just how important it is to have a safe and secure place to live. Plus, with Christmas just around the corner, being able to keep an eye on delivered packages and secure our home while here and away is invaluable.
Our kitchen project has taken longer than we anticipated—Isn’t that everyone’s kitchen renovation story? When we took out the metal cabinets and flooring in August, we found issues with the walls and electrical that needed to be addressed before anything else could get started. Once the cabinets were in the house, they didn’t stay in their packaging long. A few days after we picked them up, they were installed in our kitchen (because of amazing help from family). It feels so good to have the new cabinets in place after designing and dreaming for months. We’re sharing our how-to process and our first ever behind the scenes video. Eee!
