Welcome! I am Ryann (the girl) and he is Ian (the guy). We are a couple of enthusiastic and admittedly inexperienced DIYers who are renovating a 60 year old cape cod style house together.
We love taking before and after pictures of our progress. They are a
great reminder when you are laying on the couch of all that you went
through and appreciate every relaxing moment. We look around the room
and remember when we didn't even have a couch to sit on. When we were
eating out of takeout boxes on the floor tired and covered in paint...
We are literally building a life together in this house.
How many couples can lay in bed looking around the room
thinking about the time when they were hanging drywall together in that
very same master bedroom...we can...well most of it. We are actually terrible at hanging drywall.
DIYers...know when NOT to do it yourself!
There is so much about this process worth remembering, not just
the before and after pictures. We decided to chronicle our journey, and
the transformation of this house for our own benefit. If we happen to
inspire, motivate or amuse you along the way...well that is certainly a
bonus! So be sure to check back often to catch up on all of our
We have a lot of work ahead of us!
