I'm a designer in training

Every once and a while a girl needs a break to relax with friends and listen to some good country music.

A couple of weeks ago ten of us went to Raven's Stadium for the Kenny Chesney "Pirates Tour"- it was 9hours of great music.

The bathroom begins

Here's the beginning stages of my more den in the master bedroom

I decided to see what was behind the slanted wall in the stairwell and surprise surprise the stairwell opened up into this.

The pictures below are for my dad to see the plumbing thru the kitchen wall.

Long Overdue Update

It has been awhile since I posted but I've been a busy girl getting my hands dirty, traveling, and learning all about the exciting things of how to be a handy girl. I have less than a month till I have to be completely out of my current house that I rent. YIPPEE no more money pointlessly going to someone else...I finally have an investment. In the past couple of weeks I have been asked by numerous people how being a home owner feels and well it can be summed up in one word..EDUCATIONAL. I have learned so much about myself and my dreams for the future of my house and me.
Below are some pics from my house and trip. Enjoy!

My pride and joy...the little garden that will grow and will not be eaten by rats.

This is my pretty new little toy......I have central ac now!!! It is so freakin tall it could be a high table.

This is the exposed brick wall after it was grinded and smoothed out and a shiny coat was put on looks a lot better in person.
After tearing out the ceiling I noticed that the brick bumpouts didn't go all the way to the 2nd floor, so I tore open the bumpouts to see if I could make more room.

I decided that I was tired of looking at the ugly ceiling I tore them down.
