Hello! I have ran across the DIY chatroom in google searches and enjoyed reading the threads. My husband and I bought a house on an inland lake in Western Michigan. It is our first house and we really enjoy it. With lake real estate prices, all we could afford was a house that hadn't been maintained for awhile.
We've spent the past two years gutting the house and redoing it. For the first year, we lived in the dining room with a bed, coffeemaker, and microwave and tore out the rest of the first floor. Then along came our little daughter and progress has moved slower for the past year.
Little daughter doesn't have a bedroom until we finish off the basement, so that is what we are working on now. Hoping to find a little help here.
