You may have been wondering why we've been focusing so many posts on our home's entryway over the last several weeks. We've covered our previous efforts on the hallway renovation, staircase restoration, harlequin paint treatment, cast iron entry stairs, and the front street light. There is a method to our madness...

When we talk to people about our renovation projects, we often find that most assume Wendy and I have multiple cars and at least one SUV or pickup truck. To most, that's the only logical way we could possibly transport and haul the various construction-related items needed to complete our projects. But in reality,...

For the last three and a half months I've been teleworking full time while my group's office space has been undergoing a full renovation. We work in the sub basement of a government building, which always felt very much like the sub basement of a government building. No natural light, a...

Today was a simply a beautiful, sunny, and temperate day, especially for D.C., so I wanted to get out of the house for lunch. My work-from-home stint is coming to an end, as the renovations in our office are complete, so I took advantage of the nice weather and the availability of my car to...

I'm sure we've all heard the old real estate adage that "The three most important factors in determining the desirability of a home are location, location, location."

Back in April we covered part one and part two of our entry hall update. This significant feature of our home was what welcomed visitors and provided an initial impression of our home. We wanted arriving guests who were visiting for the first time to be pleasantly surprised by the home's...
