Living through a home renovation is like living in the wild…you do whatever it takes to survive.
Welcome to our blog!
We are Daniela and Scott tuning in from the capital of Ottawa, ON. We are here to share with you our journey of home renovation, remodeling, and refurbishment. We may even entice you to indulge in demolition fantasies of your own!
Let us first begin by saying home renovation projects are not for the faint of heart. There will be sweat. There will be sleepless nights. There will definitely be drywall dust in places you never thought possible.
Our journey into the world of home renovation began in 2006 before the birth of our son (i.e. while we still possessed the exuberance of 30 something year olds). Fresh ideas and a desire to master the art of the hammer motivated us to begin renovations on our first home. With a great sense of accomplishment, we sold our home and moved our family onto the next project.
Next, we tackled a Basic Builder home. We took our Basic Builder and turned it into a not so basic blah home with better interior finishes and landscape. We listed our second home and within a month we were continuing on our journey.
Fast-forward to present and we are working on our largest most extensive renovation. Busy work schedules have made our current renovation project a little hectic but our journey is not over yet!
We are here to share our home renovation journey with you through our photos, experiences, mistakes, and recommendations.
We hope you enjoy the ride.
