First Home Owner Diaries Volume One: Intro

First Home

My wife and I recently purchased our first real home in May of 2017. Previously we were staying in a family home which felt like we were renters most of the time. After being married for almost six years we felt like it was the right step to being successful adults. Being first home owners comes with a lot of new adventures, and we’re looking forward to most of them. As most home owners would agree, remodel, repair, and rejuvenation projects suck any extra money out of adulthood. Because of that I’m starting a blog series about my successes, failures, and discoveries being a first time home owner.


Being raised by a crafty and handy family, I consider myself to be a Do-it-Yourselfer. This means I’m willing to attempt almost any house project myself before hiring outside workers. Between the internet, HGTV, and the people around me, I think we’ll be able to do a lot of “damage” ourselves.

Future posts

Please follow along on our quest to beautify our home. I’ll be posting progress photos, step-by-step guides, and what not to do. This should be fun for us and I want to share it with the world.

Volume Two

My next volume, coming very soon, will be my time with our new pressure washer. This piece of heavy machinery should play in to a bunch of future projects to come.
