State of the House, 2017 – Bedrooms, Bathrooms and Loft

Alright, time for the final part of the 2017 house tour! I’ve already posted about the exterior, and the main living areas, so keep reading to see the bedrooms, bathrooms and the loft. Let’s start with the loft... There it is, truth...I bet you weren’t expecting to see a giant mess right off the bat were you? The loft is the only thing … [Read more...]



State of the House, 2017 – Main Living Areas

Alright, who’s ready for an interior house tour? Fair warning, this is not some beautifully staged, perfect house tour that you find all over home blogs, this is a very unfinished and unpretty tour so you know exactly where the house stands. Today I’ll show you the main living areas (areas in red below), and in the next post we’ll do the bedrooms, … [Read more...]



The State of the House, 2017 – The Exterior

I feel like I need to give y’all an honest-to-goodness overview of the whole house. The entire thing, not just the pretty parts that we have finished, or the parts we are currently working on, but the whole house in all its unfinished glory. So today I’m starting with the exterior, since blogging about that part is quite a bit less intimidating … [Read more...]



Framing is complete!

If there was ever a post I was super excited to write, it is this one. Our house is framed! YAY! I love it even more than I did on paper. It was so fun to watch it go up...and it went up fast! The whole thing was done in about two weeks by a team of eight guys (and they didn't even work everyday). So let's get to the pictures. There are a TON in … [Read more...]



The Most Embarrassing Post I’ve Ever Written

Three years ago today I started Domestic Imperfection. For the first two blogiversaries I put together giveaways as a thank you to my readers for all the support. This year I didn't plan anything though, mostly because it's a whole lot of work and only one or two people win things. So instead I'm going to do something better...I'm going to … [Read more...]



The Official Domestic Imperfection House Tour! (And A Link Party)

Welcome to my house tour...it's been a long time coming, right!? Currently my empty house tour tab is one of my most clicked things on my site, yet there has never been anything in it. To think of all the poor DIYers and curious souls I disappoint every single day. No more! So welcome to my always in progress, blurry pictured, somewhat messy house … [Read more...]



Meet Virginia

Today a first is happening here at Domestic Imperfection...I'm having a guest poster! Normally I shy away from this sort of thing but I really wanted y'all to meet Virginia who writes over at LiveLoveDIY. Now I don't know if she wears high heels when she exercises, if her daddy wrestles alligators, or if she only drinks coffee at midnight...but I … [Read more...]



Kickin It Old School – Our First Apartment

(That post title is more relevant than you think...our first apartment actually was in an old school!) . Recently our laptop broke, and as I was transferring all our photos over to the new computer I noticed I had a bunch of pictures of our apartment in NY. I thought ya'll might be interested to see, so here we go! This is the outside of our … [Read more...]



Our Pink Nightmare

My husband and I recently bought our first house. Besides the usual 3 bed/2bath list of wants, a had two biggies on the list. 1) I do not want to be able to see into my neighbors window from inside mine. In fact, I don't really want to be able to see my neighbors house at all. 2) I want the house to need some work. As a former Realtor I can assure … [Read more...]
