We moved into the cabin about 11 months ago. It seemed small after our house, and dirty, and crumbling. It was all of those things. It still is. What we didn't know when we moved in was that we'd have hers of mule deer coming through our yard (very cool), or that we'd be living … Continue reading The past year in the cabin
That time we bought a house, remodeled it, and then moved into a cabin
Remember when we bought a house? And then painted everything, re-did the kitchen, re-did the dining room, re-did the bathroom (oops, guess I didn't blog that), landscaped the yard, and were just settling in? Yeah, we've moved. Anthony somewhat jokingly threw in an application for a job in Aspen. Within about an hour of submitting … Continue reading That time we bought a house, remodeled it, and then moved into a cabin
Our kitchen needed a lot of work before we moved in. The original cabinets were in rough shape, and the function wasn't great. I really didn't like having a stove right next to the back door, and hated how closed off the kitchen felt with the wall dividing it and the dining room. So we … Continue reading Kitchen Remodel
Dining Room Remodel
A dining room isn't always a very exciting remodel. In general, most dining rooms get a little bit of paint, maybe a new light fixture, and ta-da! Done. Ours was pretty much that--plus taking down a wall to open it to the kitchen. Our front door actually opens directly into the dining room, so we … Continue reading Dining Room Remodel
After leaving Quito, we headed to Coca, which lies along the Amazon River. We spent a few hours seeing a small part of the town, including a local market. We took a boat to the Yarina Lodge, where we would spend the next week. Nestled deep the rainforest, Yarina Lodge is remote, but offers cozy … Continue reading Ecuador’s Amazon
I have been avoiding blogging about our trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos for a long time--not because it wasn't a good trip (it was great!) but because editing the photos, sorting them, and uploading them to the blog would take so much time. Enter my long forgotten friend: Flickr. I finally figured out I could … Continue reading Quito, Ecuador
Sorry for falling off the face of the earth for the past few weeks. We've been hiking in the Amazon and swimming with sea turtles in the Galapagos! Now that we're back we have a lot to catch up on--including about 13GB of photos and videos to sort and edit! We'll be sharing our adventures … Continue reading We’re back!
House Progress 1/28/15
Laminate floors we laid ourselves, and our messy office that still needs unpacking! Things have been crazy. I don’t say that sarcastically. I say that in all seriousness. I might be losing it. We finally moved into our new house. Our landlady didn’t want us to go. She needs the income. But it’s not our … Continue reading House Progress 1/28/15
Kitchen Progress! 1/7/15
After a few weeks, we finally have our kitchen cabinets back up! I will write a post on how we did them once I can take a proper after photo (with new counters, a floor, and appliances in place), but let me tell you, this is not something I really recommend doing. SIX hours of … Continue reading Kitchen Progress! 1/7/15
House progress 12/18/14
I suppose you may be wondering why it's taken me so long to post another update on the house. Truth be told, there's not much to look at. I've painted the ceilings, walls, and trim upstairs. I have a few touch-ups to do. But for the most part, there's not a lot to see. There … Continue reading House progress 12/18/14
