We’re deep in this ‘surviving a kitchen remodel with 3 young kids’ phase of life right now. It’s messy and chaotic and busy, but it’s been kind of a cool learning-to-live-with-less experience, too. The one thing we can’t do without: our barbecue. We’ve made everything from bbq pizza to bbq cobbler and while I’m sure we’ll get sick of bbq meals eventually, it hasn’t happened yet! Today I wanted to share our favorite bbq pancake recipe and a few tips for surviving a live-in kitchen remodel.
We’ve been up to something big at our Farmhouse this summer…and I don’t mean the kitchen remodel. Daphne is potty training! This is our third go around with potty training and with each kid we’ve fine-tuned our process a bit. Over the years, we’ve found that there are just 3 simple things we need in a bathroom in order to get a kid potty-trained, and we’re sharing them today…
The final bill on our DIY marble countertops…
An easy and inexpensive (just $25!) gallery wall we created for our nature-loving boys.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to show you our new kitchen sink and faucet! Not only are they beautiful, but guys, we don’t have to wash dishes in the bathroom anymore!!! Life changing.
We’ve been loving our garden patio for a couple of months now, and thought it was time to share a DIY. Building a patio and laying pavers is definitely a do-it-yourself kind of project. It’s more labor than skill and relatively affordable. This project is all about the prep, so don’t skimp on that. And you’ll probably need to brush off the old TI-85 (aka calculator) to determine how much gravel and sand you’ll need. But if you have a long-weekend on your hands and a friend or two, this is a project for you!
We’ve been making progress on our Farmhouse kitchen remodel and today I wanted to share a few ways we’re saving money on this project. Major kitchen overhauls are expensive, there’s no way around that. But over the years, Garrett and I have developed a few tried-and-true strategies for keeping kitchen costs as low as possible. Today we’re parting with Figure.com to bring you our 9 best tips for saving money on a kitchen remodel.
Now that we showed you what our garden looks like in the daytime, I thought it would be fun to take you on a tour at night. Being out here after the sun goes down is pure magic. The owls and frogs start their serenade, the stars shine so bright (as they only can away from the lights of the city), and it’s a perfect place to linger over a beer or cup of tea.
Our live-in kitchen remodel is underway (!) and I can’t tell you how excited we are. But of course remodeling a kitchen while you live in the house is a wee bit disruptive no matter how excited you are. Especially with 3 young kids at home. We’re currently in the no-sink-or-dishwasher phase of this remodel, and I thought it would be a good time to show you our progress and explain how we’re phasing this project in order to minimize disruptions. And by ‘disruptions’ I mean minimize the length of time we can’t use the kitchen.
