EPISODE 7: HOME RENOVATION – Modern Kitchen Design
The kitchen is IN! Mostly, that is. The island is not yet set to prevent a lot of headache with cutting the Oak Floors around it, so we choose to install the island after the floors are in.
EPISODE 6: Drywall, Insulation & Sneak Peak of Plumbing fixtures
What a difference a week makes! Three inspections were signed off on by the City of Tacoma (Framing, Insulation and Electrical). Gas lines were stubbed out to the (soon to be) new furnace, fireplace and stove. Follow along as I (Jenny Wetzel) Renovate my 1959 Modern Home in Tacoma, WA
EPISODE 5: HOME RENOVATION – Hello Great Room!
If you can’t tell from the video – I am tired! Overwhelmed with the feeling of satisfaction and gratitude, after all that has been accomplished the last week and a half. Constant communication between contractors and vendors, rearrangement of schedules, trusting relationships and good ol’ hard work is the only reason we are on track to begin insulating and hanging drywall.

Tacoma, Washington – Our town is composed of mostly, older Craftsman, Tudor, Bungalow and Victorian style homes.
