Look what I found! Last summer, Denver Historic hosted a tour of Hilltop Mid-Mod houses. We were in a bit of a rush with a cranky and sleepy toddler…and we had just started remodeling our house. I already did blog posts of the other three houses that we saw on the tour. But, I forgot […]

We’re almost there!

by lesley on January 6, 2010

Has it really been 3 months since our last post? That is so sad! Lots going on in the remodel. I got so sucked into actual house work that I’ve had very little time to post anything. Also, I think I felt so defeated the last three months that I haven’t felt very motivated to […]

We’re tired and broke, but seeing the light. We’re on the countdown, but we have SO much left to do. Here’s some highlights. We finally got […]

Sketch Up Images

by lesley on September 20, 2009

Our architect created 3D Sketch-Up Images so we could visualize our new space. I kept forgetting to put them up here. Also, I just figured out how to move around in Google SketchUp. I’m slow like that.
