I've been hinting for quite some time that we are in the process of getting started on a home renovation. It's been a dream of ours for as long as I can remember and the fact that we are on the brink of starting has me giddy with excitement. I can't believe it's almost here!
Of course, all of that excitement comes with a bit of apprehension. When I first started researching, I did't know the first thing about...well...anything. However, over the past few months, I've made it my mission to not only become educated, but really hone in on our style. Thankfully, Hunter and I both agree on our tastes, so we haven't had to compromise too much when it comes to choosing tiles and finishes. I am sure that can be the source of many arguments if you're not on the same design page.
Even though I am not an interior designer nor am I an interiors blogger, it seems only natural that house content is going to creep into the blog from time to time because let's face it: when I'm not working or watching hours of Fixer Upper, I'm pretty much thinking about the renovation. Sorry not sorry.
Today, I wanted to give you an idea of where we are starting, as well as a glimpse into where we're heading. First of all, we are not moving. Well, not technically. We are renovating the house we already live in and own, but will be moving out during construction to help speed things along. Second, we are not doing any major renovating to the footprint of our home. In fact, the footprint of our home (ie. the foundation) will not change. We're going up and adding a second story, essentially doubling our square footage. The main floor of our home will stay, in large part, the same (for now). So, no kitchen renovations around here, y'all. What we ARE doing is updating our current bathroom which presently has a blue bathtub and making room for a staircase. Otherwise, that's it!
The photo at the top of the post gives you a cute idea of where our house is starting. This is our house in watercolor form. :) I'm a little superstitious, so once we get our building permit approved in the next month or so, I'll share our house plans with you. In the meantime, be on the lookout for posts featuring our inspiration for the house. I'm sure there will be posts about everything from tile to art. Looking forward to sharing this process with y'all!
