We spend a lot of time and effort into making our house feel like home. One of Jessica's favorite interior design blogs is Young House Love (a couple from Richmond, VA). The transformation they made on their home is incredible; even more incredible is how they're able to accomplish what they do on such a low budget. The couple focuses on clean lines and colors. Since we originally furnished our house, our style has adapted similarly.

There are so many future projects on our list. Some require lots of cash and may not happen for a long time (e.g. our furniture tastes have changed and new couches are expensive) and others don't (paint). We keep changing our minds on what type of paint colors we like even shortly after we paint a room.

Here is a list of our upcoming projects. Our hope is that all of these get finished in the next year.
  • Finish the nursery
  • Make a headboard for the guest bedroom
  • Built-in bookshelves for the loft (Jessica's dad)
  • Turn the loft into a second family room
  • Repaint our master bedroom
  • Install kitchen subway tile backsplash
  • Add white beadboard to the back side of the kitchen island
  • Redo front flowerbed / landscaping
