One might think people who build a new home won’t have any house projects for at least a few years. After all, everything should be new. That’s not the case at all at my home, which was built just last year. This weekend we finished our third major house project of the year.
The first was the installation of a lawn and some landscaping around the home. We opted to wait until the spring after our home was constructed, because we were too busy last summer and fall to get to it.
The second was converting the spare bedroom into a baby’s room. This project was necessary because of the unexpected but much appreciated baby we had this summer. The old saying about babies coming with new houses couldn’t have been any more accurate in our case. This project included installing chair rail around the room, repainting it in baby friendly colors (take away your own meaning on whatever that might mean) and refinishing an old dresser to make it like new again.
Our final project of the year was to make our room dedicated for an office into an actual working office space.
