Haven't been the best with the updates lately, it's been a mad week! Friday saw the rest of the granite cills and windows go in, very hard trying to get a photo of them that doesn't show off all the rubbish in the front garden😂 We are now down to one triangular piece for above the french doors, this will be measured for later on in the week when the peak has been moved 6inches🙈basically when the french doors were fitted the peak on the roof didn't line up dead centre with the middle of the doors so Gav is pulling it down again and redoing it because as a carpenter he just can't bare to look at it! His knee officially gave up on him on Friday evening and today we got the results of an MRI he had done on Saturday - his kneecap is in the wrong place😓 .. #buildingproject #buildingahouse #builderswife #builders #builderslife #build #building #buildersofig #buildersofinstagram #buildingsite #builder #buildersofinsta #buildings #renovation #reno #renovations #renovationproject #windows #porch #roof #carpentry #irishbuild #irishselfbuild #house #home
Let me tell you about one of our biggest obsessions....Pella windows and doors! Our family took a peek at my listing today on our last spec home in one of our very favorite locations...in the Gated Golf Course Community of Hampton on the Lake in Oollewah. The doors large and small and the windows just complete a RBHC home, don’t you think? This house is ready and can still be decorated for Christmas! I would love to show it to you! 🚪 🚪 🚪 #riverbirchhomesofchattanooga #community #customhomebuilder #pellawindows #pelladoors #pellawindowsanddoors #abuilderasparticularasyouare #championsclub #gatedcommunity #ooltewahtn #spechome #mls1282460 #builderswife #livingthelifewelovetogether #thegrouprealestate #cedarbeams #itsallaboutthedetails #hardwood #architecture #tennesseeviews #design
When you find the perfect wreath for the perfect “thingy” in that space you didn’t know what to do with.....AND your husband can measure and hang🤣 #builderswife #blessings #holidaydecor
Sunday evening me time, relaxing in a lavender foam bath after a busy weekend working at the barn - soon-to-be our new home! 🛁#traditionalbathroom #interiorinspo #barnconversionweekendwork #builderswife @loccitane_fr #lavender #loccitane #upcycledbottle #lightsinabottle #upcycling #interior bought on @amazon #myhappycapture #lifeupclose #beingpresent
So today our little sunroom is getting knocked down, extension taking shape and we will be able to see the full length from front to back #kitchenextension # extending thebungalow#bungalowdreams #renovatingthebungalow #builderswife #
Feeling super proud! It’s far from a finished kitchen but the before and after from the same spot is blowing my mind! I can’t believe it’s the same house. So grateful for Mr H’s hard work - I’m getting a kitchen for Xmas 🥰 #kitchen #cottagerenovation #builderswife #renovation #kitchenrenovation #transformation #beforeandafter #kitchen #diykitchen #carpenter #husband #feelingblessed
Wonder how many other builders have beautiful French manicures? #builderswife #helping #frenchmanicure #manicure #itsgottobedone #hammer #hammerhand #keepingitstylish
Project Bathroom.... let’s get this room stripped back!!! We are also knocking through the single toilet room with the bathroom to make it one amazing open space 🛀👊🏼 My question is how am I going to design it... freestanding bath and suspended ceiling lighting comes to mind 🙊 #bathroomrenovations #renovationproject #buildingahouse #builderswife #builderslife #bathroomdesign #bathroom #bathroomdecor #jbbuildinganddesign

Day 4 through the door @myhousethismonth , trying to play catchup but these are our doors in the bungalow but I will change them in the future, we are trying a modern minimal look here at the bungalow but I really like the oak doors but not sure if they would go with ultra white modern interiors , I'm open for suggestions ? #plaindoor #boringdoor #bungalow #bungalowrenovation #builderswife #newdoorsneeded
It won’t be much longer with all that green sheathing showing.... 😍 I really love the brick we chose. Randy likes the red brick but I am actually the opposite and like lighter gray/brown brick. One day we drove around for a few hours looking at the different brick options, actually ON houses. I highly recommend doing that if you are struggling seeing what it will look like after time and on an entire wall. (Our brick company had a list of different addresses with the different bricks) We settled on a blend that had a little bit of what we both liked. It’s called Blend 44 through Trinity brick. I was reassured how perfect it was for us! I’m so excited for the elevation coming to life!!! . . . . #custombuild #brick #brickselection #blend44 #trinitybrick #fromthegroundup #zipsystem #zipsheathing #huberwood #bfsbuilt #oklahome #oklahoma #builderswife #ourbuildingjourney #frenchcountry #scandanavinstyle #constructionlife #housegoals #dreamhome #customhouse #momlife #gettingitreitz #urbannesthomes #rustic #newhome #buildlife #homeinspo
❤️ MY WHY ❤️ These guys are my driving force behind what I do. They are the reason I was open minded enough to look at a business opportunity that I previously would have turned my nose up at. I want more time with them without having to ask for it. I want to be there for every school drop off and pick up, those after school chats, the cute moments as toddlers, the school sports days, the impromptu trips away without having to apply for time off. I want them to have options in life and know that their mama is doing everything she can for them to have that. I’m on a mission for time and financial freedom so I can spend all the time in the world with them. They say you only get 18 Summers with your kids, how many have you got left? What’s your why? . . . . . . #mumboss #mumlife #familyiseverything #lovethesekids #homebusiness #buildingbossbabes #onamission #mumof2 #stepmum #builderswife #familyphoto #HarperK #HunterK #komfam #mywhy #whatsyourwhy #letsdothis #whatareyouwaitingfor #entrepreneurlife #networkmarketing #ceomama #ceomumma #arbonnelife . . . 📸 @lauraridleyphoto
Day 3 cosy corner @myhousethismonth myhousethismonth as our house is upside down at the moment there are no internal cost corners so I have had to use our garden cosy corner , wishing it was still sunny like this as i am not a winter person at all #garden #bungalowrenovation #builderswife #renovatingthebungalow #bungalowdreams #cosycorner
Let’s talk about Ash+Jake & this capture. This is their home that Jake is personally building with his own two hands. I tend to bring weird things with me to engagement sessions- I had this array of items and I knew how I wanted to picture them or so I thought, but then there was wind it was cold... & it clicked, I saw the house they were building- it turned out better than I could’ve imagined. One day when their house is done they can pull up the photos from this engagement session and say- “remember when.” This is in their future bedroom. All the feels. Oh and then I got some real The Notebook house scene vibes and I was like- ok. Ya. Dig this. #radlovestories #authenticlovemag #dirtybootsandmessyhair
Hubby is a builder which is very handy when you want an artwork put up on a wall 😊 (a wall he built in the first place I might add, so lucky to have had him build our beautiful home, he is so clever). He had to exercise a LOT of patience yesterday as I umm’d and ahh’d where this canvas baby should go!! 😳 Anyway, I think I might get him to frame my canvases in future. One thing I’ve learnt for sure this year is that we’re a cracking combo, he and I, for many different reasons... this is just one! I paint, he presents! 🔨🎨💜 #builderswife #thisladylovesatradie
Happy Sunday All❤ .. Gav got a start on the shed yesterday! To keep costs down he came up with the idea of building it from wood and then cladding it with the same rustic brick used on the front and back of the house. The brick layer is coming back tomorrow just to build supporting walls for it on the inside as we didn't want to risk building it off the existing wonky walls that are in the garden! .. This week has been the hardest by far. We haven't had heating since July which hasn't been an issue until now but with the weather so bad the last few days we have been frozen and there's only so far electric heaters can get you. Currently in bed dying with a head cold! .. Anyways the good news is we should have heating on Wednesday, all going well🤞The boiler is going to be in the shed hence the rush to suddenly get it built! . #building #buildings #builders #buildingsite #builder #builderswife #buildingproject #buildersofinsta #build #buildyourempire #shed #sheds #carpentryskills #carpentrylife #carpenter #carpentry #renovation #renovating #reno #renovations #wood #wooden #woodworking #woodwork #brickwall #cold
Every day is progress these days! Windows and doors are undergoing a make over. Room is looking amazing. Doing all the work ourselves. Yep a building site to everyone else, vision to me lol 😊😊 Swipe right to see the early days of how it looked ➡️ #cottagerenovation #riversidecottage #builderswife #renovation #kitchenrenovation #newkitchen @diykitchens #kitchenmakeover #beforeandafter
Can’t beat new goodies arriving! Thank you @snuggle_in they are stunning! Now the long wait for the sofa to arrive to put them on 😍 #blanket #renovation #knitting #chenille #builderswife #kitchenremodel
This is our infamous kitchen backsplash- that is making us entirely too nervous. We WANT to do something not so plain, but when it comes down to it, we are nervous as heck. Can we get some reassurance?! Or maybe a few hesitant people out there?! We reselected this week with our tile/flooring company and this is the one thing we changed. Really only it being a lighter color vs the more blackish one. We REALLY want to know what y’all think.... no feelings will be hurt. . . . #customhome #custombuild #houseinspo #urbannesthomes #kitchenbacksplash #gettingitreitz #scandinaviandesign #interiordesign #fromthegroundup #ourbuildingjourney #builderswife #constructionlife #frenchcountry #rusticcoastal #rustichome #buildersofig
@myhousethismonth day 2 November newness is our lovely new roof which means no more collapsing ceilings and pots and pans catching the drips #bungalowrenovation #bungalowdreams #renovatingthebungalow #builderswife #kitchenextension #newroof #carvers
🙈💪🏻😂 LUNCH • BREAK 🙈💪🏻😂 Had to stop and help him.. think I’ll stick to painting nails.. I got sent off to make tea instead ☕️🍂 #builderswife #gardenshed #rendering #sticktopaintingyournails
Y’all, it’s been a HOT minute. And lots has happened. A. WE TRAVELED THE 🌍. Well, actually more like Spain and The United Kingdom... and it was just amazing. We can come back to that later. B. We have INSULATION, SHEET ROCK, AND BRICK. Yup, all those are caps. The insulation and sheet rock felt so flipping fast compared to everything. But mind you, there was HVAC and Electric before this- plus inspections, so let’s just be real there. All inspections did go well. Our hiccups still happened (like yesterday, with the brickers maybe making it flood a little bit), it all resolved itself and I thank my lover builder of sparing me from unnecessary stresses. I am SO diggin’ our brick choice and STILL in awe I’ll get to call this place home. Tonight, we had our finalization for cabinet drawings and we are once again rockin’ and rollin’ and prayin’ for NO rain. Also, swipe for Daddy’s arrival to the job site. 👉🏼 . . #builderswife #custombuild #brickwork #oklahome #Oklahoma #scandanaviandesign #gettingitreitz #urbannesthomes #fromthegroundup #ourbuildingjourney #blend44 #zipsystems #huberwood #jameshardy #bfsbuilt #farmhouse #exterior #interiordesign #architecture #homearchitecture
And so it begins again! Starting to get excited as I start picking out finishes for our new home! With SO many choices, it makes it tough...do I go with some gold finishes, or maybe some dark navy cabinets? I LOVE some of the newer design touches that are available these days. What are some of the new trends you're loving?? This will be the 4th house we've built together. And when I say built, I mean we've layed the wood floors, done all the trim work, tile work, painted the entire house, so on and so forth. My husband has owned their construction company with his dad for 17 years. Of course with any business that you start from the ground up, there are ups and downs. But thru it all they've trusted the Lord and His plan and He has blessed them for it. ❤
It’s all about the little things 😊 #kitchendesign #kitchendecor #ducks #builderswife
Now + Before 📖 We removed the curved cabinetry and built a new staircase railing but apart from that; just cosmetic changes to the entry hallway and bench seat
Now + Before 🐋 Most of our reno was purely cosmetic but in this space we removed the curved wall to create a bigger butlers pantry and of course removed the screen that was blocking the view! #1994

I built my pantry today. It’s not finished, but it’s close. #givemeallthecedar #pantry #builderswife #thefinisher

How I access my laundry at the moment. Washing for a family of 5 has made me pretty adept on the ladder #renolife #renovation #builderswife #extremelaundry
Love these skylights❤ They are Velux windows but come with domes that are fitted over the top, allowing extra light to flood in. .. The roof felting is also complete, really happy with the job the roofers done on it. All we need now is cappings for the walls! .. #renovation #renovating #renovations #reno #irishrenovation #irishhomerenovation #irishbuild #irishhomes #builders #buildingahouse #builderswife #building #buildingsite #builder #buildersofinsta #buildingproject #buildings #buildyourempire #house #home #ourhouse #ourhome #roof #roofing #skylights #veluxwindows
My contribution to today’s building of the bar 🤣 Only 171 bottles to go to fill the racks.... #postmanisgoingtothinkihaveaproblem #winedelivery #builderswife #renovation #parcels #wine #winetasting #winesubscription #australianwine
We are 13 weeks into the build and still on track for an end of November completion🤞 .. Phase 1 of the window installation is due to start on Wednesday. .. Gav & Brian got a run at the porch elevation on Friday and I absolutely love it❤ I think the peak over the door adds a bit of character and helps to pull old and new together. .. The peak will have glass in it to help flood the hallway with light and the original sitting room on the left will have a bay window. .. #build #buildyourempire #buildingahouse #builders #building #builderswife #buildersofinsta #buildingproject #buildingsite #renovation #reno #renovations #renovating #housetohome #house #houses #buildingahouse #home #homes #buildingahome #porch #roof #roofing #rooftop #wood #woodworking
