DIY Home Renovation - An ENORMOUS Project


In August 2018, a simple project ended up turning into completely making over the main rooms of our home: the kitchen, living room, and dining room. We spent several months scraping, sanding, taping, mudding, priming, painting, wood-working, drywalling, caulking, sawing, drilling, gluing, removing, hanging, replacing, and building everything ourselves. (And honestly, I did about 90% of the work myself! It was a fun, therapeutic project for me to work on daily for months on end.)

Here are the posts that involve the renovation--including before and after photos.

I would start with The Story of Our Home. Jerry and I bought a manufactured home (a.k.a. trailer, double wide, call it what you'd like!) when we got married. We intended for it to be temporary, but we fell in love with where we live. Read that story first.



After 14 years, we decided it was time for a remodel. I took it upon myself to give the house a makeover--and I did it all by myself! (Jerry did the flooring, but the rest was all me). Here are the posts all about the big "Renovation 2018-19"

There are TONS more photos in each of the above links, as well as descriptions of what I did and how I did it. You can also find tutorials here and crafts here.

Also, I'm not finished yet :)  I'll be posting more as I finish up the last few parts of the house.
