The basic blue house is a basic builder home in the suburbs of Richmond, VA.  It has 3478 square feet and has an unfinished 3rd floor.  The construction might be basic but we chose $40,000 of upgrades to turn this basic floor plan into the home that would provide the backdrop for our design.

In the fall of 2016, we installed shiplap and built-ins to the family room.  We also upgraded a lot of the lighting in our home including the kitchen pendants.

In the spring of 2017, we tiled the kitchen floor to ceiling with white subway tile.  We also designed a nursery for our baby girl due July 2017 and upgraded our son to a toddler room.

Next up on the agenda is some rest from major house projects as we focus on the change of becoming a family of 4.  There’s still so much we want to do including trimming out and painting the kitchen island, designing the dining room, installing wainscoting in the entryway and upstairs hallway, planning a deck/patio and installing a sliding door for the pantry but for now we will focus on some smaller projects like finally hanging up picture frames and installing more new lights (goodbye boob lights!).
