If you guys have been following along over the past couple of months, then you know that we bought our first house (if you’re new or you missed it, you can read about it here!). The minute we stepped into this house, we knew it was the one. Everything about it just felt right. It was just a feeling that we really didn’t get from any other property we looked at. And although there were plenty of changes we wanted to make, it had the bones, character and location that we wanted. The house itself doesn’t need to be renovated, which was great because we were able to move in right away, live in the house and figure out what we wanted to update. After moving, we found an amazing interior designer (and now friend!), Olivia Brock from Torrance Mitchell Designs, and architect, Beau Clowney. Together they’ve created our dream space with our dream home. We’ve spent the past few months finalizing the details, adding more on, tweaking things here and there, working on design plans, picking out fixtures and appliances and tiles and much more. We’re SO excited to begin renovations in just a few short weeks!
We definitely wanted to share some of the process with you guys, so what better way to start than with a house tour video! Most of the house isn’t decorated and some rooms are completely empty or temporarily being used as storage. We only brought a few pieces with us from San Francisco, which all looks so small in our house vs apartment. We’re going to be selling most of it, and starting from scratch, so we’re keeping the bare minimum to move into our rental property while construction is under way. Luckily, we won’t be too far so we can keep a good eye on the process! We’ll be sharing more bits and pieces of what’s to come, so stay tuned on more home posts. We’re sort of newbies to this, so we’re just taking it step by step right now. I’d love to hear any words of advice or wisdom from those of you who have done home renovations or construction!
