Schedule of Renovation Events

Being in-between projects, I thought I would release a text heavy post. Snooze, skip, skim or read if you choose, but this is our tentative schedule of projects for the next few months. Our list only goes until the end of February, because that puts us at our official honeymoon trip to Aruba, check that out here! March also brings warmer weather which draws Nathan out of the house to prepare for spring work. Besides, this is a lengthy list and in the end it may be just that, a list that doesn’t get many items crossed off, but it’s a jumping off point. Enjoy!
