So far, I’ve done a crap job with my resolution to be a better blogger in 2015.
I have good news on that front though. I’m about to free up some mage time because, Christine Dovey Style is…
Yup…the time has officially come. I’m in DESPERATE need of an assistant so if you love design and want to help yours truly get her organizational shit together etc., please email me to set up a chat.
I’m hoping having an extra set of hands and one more brain trust in the mix will free up some time so that I can get back to doing some things I love, like keeping these here pages up to date.
And on that front, I’d love to really get down to brass tacks and start sharing progress on the…
I spent Friday morning with my architect going through the house and am meeting with a builder today to discuss options etc.
In my head, I’m seeing a total gut to the rafters, along with a garage and kitchen/great-room addition. Right now the house rings in at about 1600 square feet and we’d like to end somewhere around 2100. Here’s the catch though…I have $200k to spend and not a penny more. I’m already feeling like things and ideas are going to chopped before they even start but we shall see.
For now, here’s the starting point…aka a cement cube of a house built in the early part of the century that lives 3 houses down from my current abode.
I’ve got 8 months max to get this place gutted and renovated to within an inch of its life.
Excited/terrifed but mostly excited.
This is the last month the renters will be in and at that point, the fam jam and I will be eating peanut butter sammies for most of 2015 so the faster this gets done and sold, the better.
God speed to me as it were:)
