Can you even remember?

Having all the upstairs completely painted feels amazing. It almost feels a little weird to have started and done most of the painting, but let someone else finish, but I'll get over it. ;)
Cleaning, rehanging the doors, making the shower more presentable and hanging towel bars again are some of the last touches. For those very observant ones who are wondering about the hole in the wall where the built-in dresser used to be, don't worry. That will be made into a closet, but probably not for a week or so yet. Other than that, things are looking finished upstairs. Do you even remember what it used to look like?

The kitchen is all sheet-rocked and mudded and taped! So marvelous. Makes me very happy every time I walk in. I love the still-dreaming-and-planning, wide open feel of walls that are just studs, but soon these very new walls will be holding the most wonderful cabinets. And that, watching all your dreaming and scheming take shape in reality, is a good feeling too!

Downstairs -- including the brand new actual stairs! -- is coming right along too. We are working from top to bottom, in case you hadn't noticed, so it isn't as far along as the kitchen, but it will be soon.

With the crew working there every week, more updates will be coming all the time. So stay tuned!

little house THREE

December 27, 2014 I moved into Little House TWO and began cleaning, painting, and decorating it. Exactly two years later my husband, of just less than a year, and I -- seven months pregnant, and our Great Pyrenees dog, Barley James, moved into Little House THREE. When we moved out of the second Little House we sold most of our furniture and purged out a lot of other belongings. What we had left -- with the latest addition of a few practical pieces of furniture and some things for Baby O -- is what we unpacked into the third Little House. The apartment you see is as we found it except for three small improvements: hanging a towel hook near the sink in the bathroom, as well as the pot and the knife rack in the kitchen. A small apartment that isn't much to look at and our minimal belongings have come together to make a very cozy home -- just in time for us to become a three-some.

Before >> little house FOUR

At the same time that we were about to move into what would become Little House Three God spoke to Luke and I separately. He told Luke to move us to Kansas City in a short amount of time, and He told me that He had "just the place" for us. As we moved forward with the Kansas City leading we spent ample time house hunting. Adventure after adventure for months with nothing actually coming together. We took the leap anyway and ended up moving into this place sight-unseen the day we moved to KC. I had scrolled through some of the images of this townhouse on the property manager's website but had passed it by knowing it was out of our budget. When the place we'd applied for wasn't a good fit though the guys offered us this place at a slight discount. Turned out to have been vacant for some time and while the amenities sell it it was dated and worn, as you can see below. Still, it was the place I had dreamed of and better still for it to be a project -- a blank slate …
