Totally un-fitness related, future husband and I have been working a lot on renovating his 100 year old farm house, which is charming, but was sadly renovated in the 1970's with green carpet in the kitchen and wood paneling throughout. Yikes. While I wish we could just hire someone and have it all gutted and finished in a month (how I miss having a dishwasher), Travis really wants us to do as much of the work ourselves as we can. Which makes total sense, this is what he does for a living. Why would he want to pay someone else to do it? So, we squeeze in the projects when we can here and there between our jobs, coaching, training, family events, and his Army career. Which makes it feel like NEVER. But, hey, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.So far, we've replaced the roof on the house/garage, replaced all of the windows throughout the entire house, built a back patio, and tackled most of the upstairs: we built a master bathroom out of a closet, gave the doors a facelift with paint and new trim, replaced all of the hardware (door knobs, hinges) and light fixtures, laid new carpet and painted all of the trim and that damn wood paneling - which has been a HUGE improvement.
