Hi. I’m Paige. And I like old stuff.
In the summer of 2017 my husband and I bought a house. There’s buying a house and there’s buying a house. This was the latter.
The House was a circa 1905 Folk Victorian Farmhouse on over 60 acres. It was absolutely everything we ever dreamed. Except it was a wreck.
Every single square inch of the house needed work. Foundation, electrical, plumbing, roof, siding, interior, bathrooms, you name it. The house needed it all.
Here’s the thing. We’re engineers. BOTH of us. We have four degrees between the two of us. Which means 1) we think we can literally do anything and 2) everything we do is four times more complicated than it needs to be.
But all the excess confidence means we dove straight in to giving this amazing house all the love and affection he deserves. We’ve had highs, lows, and everything in between over the last three years of DIY renovation. And? It’s turned out pretty freaking spectacular.
If you have an old house, a new house, a renovation project, or just want a laugh, I hope you’ll stick around and see what’s going on. I promise it’ll be fun.
