Gross garage out, glam garage in!

With our house going on the market within the next couple of weeks, it's been getting down and dirty over at the Bales residence. We finally had the last ugly part of this house de-uglyfied last weekend. It's safe to say that our garage was a HOT mess. Literally.

Bye bye dirt, hello concrete!

In the last post, Trent had just completed pouring concrete in our ICF basement/foundation walls. Since then, lots more concrete happened. I mean LOTS. Like 6 of those swirling trucks full.

Though I took a 10 month blog break, our house updates have been going nonstop! We have done so much to this place, but one of the biggest projects since my last post has been the remodel of our guest bathroom and master vanity area.

Exterior paint!

Our house has been pretty on the inside for quite some time now. The exterior has been a whole different story though. The previous owner's wife was apparently a big fan of blue, hence the blue carpet throughout the house when we bought it and the lovely blue trim and shutters on the outside of… Continue reading Exterior paint!
