Look What I've Been Busy With {renovating a beach house}

We have taken the plunge and are OFFICIALLY in construction hell mode.  Our bay home in Galveston, Texas has been desperately in need of a face lift for the last 10 years and I am so excited that we are finally moving ahead FAST with the renovation.

We completely gutted the home last week and left nothing but the studs and windows.

The sliding patio door leads to our living room and the window to the left is where the kitchen begins.

I am really going to TRY to document all of the stages of renovation here on the blog.  If you want to see the direction I am planning to take the home, hop on over to my Pinterest and click on the three "Koss Beachhouse" boards.  

My username for Pinterest is myhousemygarden.  I think that's how you find it.  I am not sure how to link up my Pinterest boards to the blog yet.  

         Too many trips each week from Houston to Galveston to even find the time to figure it out.

Holly Mathis, of Holly Mathis Interiors, came to stay for a long working weekend at the house last year.  She is the one that really got me going in the direction that I wanted to take the house.
That girl is an AMAZING designer and can come up with so many wonderful ideas so fast that I am sure she must have had cramps in her fingers texting me all weekend.
Thank you, Holly!!!!

 This was a picture that I took yesterday.  The vinyl siding is off and the new Hardiplank is going up.  Not sure what color we are going to paint the house yet but I am leaning towards a very pale, creamy yellow. 

I will post some before pictures of the inside of the house this week.  I just have to find them!

  2. With the New Year quickly approaching, many people are setting
    their sights towards total physical fitness.

    Naturally, if you are not a morning person, setting your alarm for 5am to go run a few
    miles will probably fail. t have to starve just because you think eating is making you obese.
