One year ago today my lumberjack and I got all up inside you. Oh, is that weird? Well, you should be used to weird by now; we’ve known each other for a whopping 365 days. It’s hard for me to believe that we’ve been taking care of each other for an entire year–you look mighty fine for your age, you know that?
Thank you for letting us turn you into our home. We’ve spent many hours, days, and long nights ripping you apart and putting you back together again. You’ve taken good care of us, and I think it’s safe to say our love for each other is mutual. Even though there are still many projects on the horizon, we couldn’t be happier with our year’s worth of progress.
Thanks for keeping us safe, and for keeping us busy. We certainly do love you.
Now, onto the pictures! I thought it would be fun to see how the house has evolved over the last year–who doesn’t love a little side-by-side comparison?

Whew. It’s been quite a productive year, and like I said before, there are still some fun projects on the horizon. In terms of the house, the next few challenges are going to be finishing the guest room, and the master suite (bedroom + bathroom). In terms of my life? I think having our little girl is going to keep us pretty busy. The year ahead is going to be filled with new experiences and learning new things, and I can’t wait to spend it in our home.
Thanks for keeping up with us for the last year! It’s been a wild ride.
