I promised house updates, so here we go. Sasha and I stopped by The Manor after church, and I’m amazed at the progress so far. We have a team of 8 guys working everyday, and they are so diligent. We’ve got new doors, popcorn ceiling removal (in progress), a new bar, a new closet, cans for the recess lighting, holes for the invisible ceiling speakers, and all new siding on the house.

  1. AHHH! So excited! Thank you so much for the updates. I can’t wait to see the progression. Especially because I know that in our next house we will probably do some major projects if the area of town is right. Keep up the updates and good luck. Also, I think I need some space shoes. xo

    • Let’s get matching pairs and become mall walkers. What could be better??? I wish y’all would stay here and renovate in HOUSTON!!
