House Update – fireplace, laundry area, 3rd bedroom, and….roof!

Hello again everyone! It’s been a while since the last posting but projects were worked on. We also went on a week long, much needed vacation to Colorado. We intend to fill our walls with our pictures from there! So pretty!

We’ve just about finished our fireplace project. The fireplace area was OK looking before but we felt it lacked proper color and contrast. Here’s some pics to show how the work went down.

Our fireplace has fangs!!


Needs some transition trim between the wood floor and the tile but is just about done.

We also FINISHED the laundry area!! Woo! Added in shelves for towels, laundry stuff, table clothes, etc. Then added in louver doors and put the trim back.

Then we got started on the 3rd bedroom. Ripped out the LAST of the smelly carpet! Another woo! Filled holes and painted. Next will be installing flooring. I think we’ve got this room thing down to a pattern haha!

Here’s what we have so far.

The overall roof is good but, as you can see from these pics, the ridges were not doing so good.

Mark cutting the ridge shingles.

Also, another little fun buy for our front porch…teal chairs! I’ve been eyeing these at Lowes all summer. Got them on sale a month ago. Score! Would love to add a little table and/or outdoor pillows on them.

Love my chairs! Sorry for the leaves on the porch. It’s been super windy around here!

Now that we are back from our awesome vacation, we will be back to work on some larger projects. I haven’t even mentioned one of our larger projects that we will be tackling soon…stay tuned to find out what it is!

  1. Wow. Great job!!! And it’s good to fix the roof BEFORE you need to! Your Grandpa Anderson would be proud of you! (Water is the enemy of any house!)

    And the fireplace and floor look wonderful! We got to see them up close recently!
