We renovated our house about ten years ago and then we did over one of the bathrooms about five years ago. Every homeowner has a list of renovations floating around. There are still some small things we'd like to do (enclose the front porch and make it a foyer?) and there's always a few big ones in our heads (bump out the dining room about ten feet/cut off the entire second floor and frame it up).
Every Sunday I get a newsletter from houzz. Some make no sense to me at all (usually the gardening ones) and others hit right on target. Here are the best pages from this morning,
Choosing a Deck: Plastic or Wood?
Perfect. We need a deck for just outside the kitchen. A boardwalk, if you will, and I am inclined to think plastic is the way to go.
International Meets Industrial in a Brooklyn Loft
While I recognize that we will never be cool enough to live in Brooklyn, I have a fantasy in which we sell the house and buy a huge loft there. This is how that loft should look. In my head.
Insulate with wool and denim?
I'll bet you didn't know that K is fanatical about insulation. He LOVES insulation.
Our other house is a French estate, I just never write about it here.
It's a teeny bit too pink for me but is, without a doubt, the playhouse of my childhood dreams.
You may think of me as twee and cozy but I'd love to live in a place like this too...maybe as a weekend house.
Do I live in a minimalist traditional house?
Not only did we find letters in our walls (from 1938) but, when we closed them back up, we left artifacts from our time.
I love this house.
This one too.
There were three or four other articles that I didn't get to.
I'm off to the beach.
