A work in progress: Story of a renovation

Well, here is the video about our home renovation that ironically took longer to finish than the renovation itself. 

Considering how long contracted home renovation jobs can take, It’s pretty pathetic how long this video took to put together. None the less, I'm pleased to share it with you! 

In this video, I focused in on only a few various aspects of the job; the main floor, broadly speaking, the backyard / back of the house, and some of the landscaping. Fact is, our basement and main floor were fully gutted, many supporting structures were replaced, and we rejigged some of the footprint as we went along. All in, it was about eight months that we were moved out. Our landscaping remained a shambles even after the house was done, so it was summer 2014 before it was all complete… give or take.

Long story short, it’s everything we hoped it would be when we bought the house way back in 2006, and we’re never leaving. 

If you need me, I’ll be on the front porch watching the sunset.
