Hey! I’m so excited to share with you what I have been up to over the last several months. But first a few family pictures :)
I can’t believe how fast they are all growing up.
They are so stinking cute together!
Okay now on to what I’ve been up to. So I have a confession….I am a little addicted to remodeling. As soon as we finished remodeling my last house I felt a little lost. Now what do I do in my free time between 9-11pm at night??? So as any sane person with 5 kids would do, you sell your completely remodeled home and buy another house that needs a complete overhaul!
Welcome to the boat room… yes that is a porthole in the wall :) I call the carpet patchwork Americana…it is in the whole basement. I am saving a piece of it and framing it so I never forget it. You can’t buy carpet like this nowadays :)
The whole room was covered in paneling with a drop ceiling and very little light since there is no overhead lighting.
It was very satisfying to tear down that paneling :)
The older kids are learning to tape and mud!!!
My new workout room…. I love it!
We put in an exhaust fan and dimmable can lighting. It is so fun to dim the lights and run while watching a movie. It’s my own personal cardio cinema room :)
The flooring we used is actually horse stall mats. They are 3/4 inch thick rubber mats that are super heavy and awkward to carry but totally worth it! They are about a third of the cost of the gym rubber floors :)
I was going for more of a spa/zen like feel than a typical home gym. The only problem is I tend to want to dim the lights, roll out my yoga mat and take a nap ;)
Does the idea of remodeling an entire home all on your own terrify you or excite you?
-Sissy: Excite. Janae: Terrify.
What usually fills up your free time?
Would you like my sister to show you room by room her remodeling when she finishes them? She is currently working on a bathroom and her kitchen:)
What is your workout today?
