Not a resolution, just an idea

I didn’t actually resolve to start blogging this year.  I also didn’t resolve to completely redo my house either, but since that ship already set sail, I suspect that I might as well enjoy the ride, and document it.  My name is Katie, and I live in Portland, Oregon.  I have a full-time job, a black Lab, and a husband as well as a 1940s Cape Cod house that could generously be called a “fixer-upper.”  My husband bought the house almost nine years ago, long before I’d even met him, and we started tinkering with it after I finished grad school a year and a half ago.

One thing led to another and the tinkering has turned into a full-fledged renovation that we have so far undertaken entirely on our own.  The only thing we enlisted a contractor friend for was the installation of two very large front windows.

The reason for the title of the blog is that I have long claimed that I do not have a DIY bone in my body.  I am starting to discover that I might have been lying all this time.


So the point of this is to discover if I really do have some DIY abilities, and what the hell those might be.  I plan to post before-and-after pictures of our projects as well as links to stuff I like, and probably other assorted randomness, depending on how the week’s going.  Hopefully it’ll be interesting!!
