First of all I just wanted to say thank you so much for the overwhelmingly positive comments on last week's One Room Challenge reveal post as well as all the love on facebook, & instagram, etc.  We really do appreciate it! We received so much feedback on our hex tile floors, we thought we'd share some details and a few tips to help any of you looking to do something similar.

This is going to be embarrassing... When we attended BlogPodium a few weeks back, one of the announcements we were pretty excited about was that PARA Paints was launching the search for their 2014 Para Blog Crew.  We knew instantly that we wanted to apply because we thought it'd be fun to shoot the submission video - that AND we do have an ENTIRE house to paint, so figured we'd have no shortage of content to blog about should we be chosen.

With the holidays around the corner we've been super busy, but the demolition video is finally edited and ready to go! When you watch the video, it'll seem like all smashing & crashing, but in actual fact, the backhoe operator was quite the artist. He used the machine like an extension of his arm - in some instances, only removing a few bricks at a time. It was pretty amazing to watch.

It's been about a month since our last post which we know is a VERY looong time!  You must be wondering what Team Dreamhouse has been up to. In all honesty...nothing.  Well, okay we put up a construction fence.  But, otherwise - a whole lot of nothing.  We sourced some window quotes & lined up a whole slew of trades, but for the most part, we've just been playing the waiting game with the city for our building permit.

We know it's been a little while since we blogged and you're probably as excited to see the plans for the Dreamhouse as we are....well maybe not quite AS excited as us, but still. Its been a busy month full of settling in with the parents, budgets, drawings, quote gathering & securing finances; all while balancing the day to day of work and raising a 3 year old. Oh yea - and we managed to throw in a couple of trips and celebrating 4 years of marriage.
