As some of you know, we purchased a house in Colorado almost a year ago. The house was built in 1975, which means popcorn ceilings, textured walls, out-of-code electrical wiring, layers of crazy paint colors and wallpaper, and, my favorite, asbestos. Oh, and some ugly built ins. For more background and to read my first home project update, click here!
About a month ago we bought a house here in Boulder, Colorado. There are a lot of things I really like about the house, including the space (4 bedrooms!) and the backyard and that it’s in Boulder. But I didn’t love all of previous owners’ design choices, so I quickly set to work towards making the place ours. We still have a long way to go, including knocking down a wall, removing popcorn ceilings (and related asbestos and/or lead!), and doing a total remodel on the master bathroom. We also haven’t begun to decorate the master bedroom. There are also some improvements we want to make so that the home is more efficient and better insulated. And we want to paint the outside. And we want to add solar panels. And… Anyway, first things first…
