For those of you who have read this blog for longer than five minutes, you’re already plenty aware of how much I skip around from project to project (even with the kitchen itself, I interrupted my progress to do a fall backyard makeover before turning back to the cabinetry). I guess skipping around, working on what interests me, is just the way I keep myself motivated. So it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to find that as far as this blog’s posting schedule goes, I sometimes skip around in my timelines for the lengthier projects. When it comes to wanting to cover all of the details of my renovations versus wanting to show you how much progress has been made with before and after photos, my eagerness sometimes wins out. And then I find that I have to backtrack a little bit to cover some of the important, necessary, but maybe not as juicy posts in order to answer questions from “the good stuff”, like my progress reveal last week.
So, that’s how we wind up with this little video tour – clearly out of order from the previous reveal – since when it was originally filmed, the sink hole hadn’t been cut yet. During the week of my uncle’s visit, I found myself getting ready for a busy DIY day and expecting my family to arrive at the house. On a whim, I decided I’d take fifteen minutes
to switch my car insurance to do a quick little video tour around the first floor of the house. It’s unedited. It’s shaky. I ramble. I show you all my clutter as the result of jumping from project to project (spoiler alert: everything in my house is shoved into a pile in the living room). But this is pretty much the first time I’ve ever put myself in front of the camera to let you see my tiny house, so I didn’t want to simply chuck it for the sake of a linear timeline for the blog.
If you’re brave enough (or just curious about how accurate I am when I say I’m awkward), press play and see the house for what it’s really like. In my opinion, it justifies the title of this post even more. There’s even a cameo of Charlie (well, mostly her butt, but the rest of her is somewhere in there too).
If the video isn’t displaying in the post, you can check it out here. For those that can’t watch at work, I’m still covering details in future posts, so you aren’t missing out too much if you decide to skip it. I just thought this might be fun for a change. Have a great weekend!
P.S. Some of you have been asking about my episodes on SheKnowsTV’s Homestretch, which haven’t yet premiered - they first said Nov. 1, then this week, but it seems like they’re still getting things ready, which is fine by me. They probably had a lot of editing to do working with a natural chatterbox like me. I just checked out the link and the episodes aren’t up yet, but I see my picture, Sandra’s, and a few glimpses of our before and after photos. Eeep! It’s both exciting and scary. I’ll be sure to tell you when the first episode is available to watch online, and there’s even a vote for who has the best room when all is said and done. I think the homeowner wins a gift card, so I’d love to make that happen for the awesome duo I worked with, Heidi and Jon. But much, MUCH more about all of that in a future post or two. Just wanted to fill you in with what I know!
P.P.S. I found this particular snippet from the video particularly amusing. I’m actually not dropping an f-bomb, if you can believe it.
