A Room a Day #1

Just over a year a year ago, we moved into our current house. Against all odds, we nailed down a foreclosure in this absolutely insane market and basically got the place for 50% off its original price. It was a total roller coaster ride and there were numerous points in the ride where I was on the verge of barfing and screaming to get off. But thanks to Brett's persistence and vision, my parents willingness to house us for 7 months, and the grace of God, somehow it worked. So this week, I will attempt to post a picture of each room in the house to give you a glimpse into our nest and to dispel any rumors that we're still living with the folks.

Here's a before pic just for fun... and yes we did have to keep the oak banister. Sanding and re-staining spindles, yeah right...I had to let that one go. And please note the off center fireplace...don't get it.


  1. Impeccable taste, as always. Also, Warts, you win the award for most consistent blogging, and this 9-to-5er, chained daily to a desk, thanks you.

  2. Finally, this mysterious house that you allegedly bought. I can't wait for the rest of the week.
