Family Room Renovation

Happy April! Spring is here and I am sooo ready for the warm-up! One good thing about the cold season is, it lets us dedicate our time to indoor projects without being interrupted with grass cutting and yard work. Another one of our projects that we completed (95%) of is the family room, basement area. […]

Stairway Remodel

Hello there! Where’ve you been? Well, the last 2.5 months, we have been swamped in insurance claims. That nasty March Nor’easter uprooted 14 huge pine trees, damaging our fence, roof shingles and fascia. Fiiiiiiiinally, we are almost done. The almost is the 12 tree stumps we have left to grind. Getting tree work done is […]

Mudroom Miracle

HAPPY SPRING!! Great to see ya, even though a nice little Nor’easter battled with us over the past weeks. Out like a lion and in like a lamb. Speaking of lions, our mudroom roared like one with crazed intensity. When Yuri and I first saw the inside of our home, I had no idea what […]

Hi ya’ll! It’s been a CRAZY life, but gooood! Moving in, boxes everywhere, construction still going on, it’s an adventure! One of the many good accomplishments that keeps me going is the completion of our girls bathroom remodel. I LOVE this room! It turned out exactly how I envisioned it. When we first saw our […]

No Pepto Here! Zolies Bedroom Renovation

I gave you a view into my teens nature room, now we’ll take a look at what we did for our youngest Zolies room. I think her room had the least to do cosmetically. The walls were in so so shape ( a lot of dents which meant a lot of mudding) and there were […]

A Teenage Room Renovation

Hey! I’ve returned from my adventure with switching web host. Lesson learned!! Back up my stuff!! Unfortunately, I lost my last post, but it’s ok, I’ll do a little refresher. Last time on Casapalooza, we were going through our deck renovation. The guys demoed all the railings, old decking boards and any bad plywood on […]

Let There Be Water!!!

FIIIINALLY!!! We struck water! The happiness is overflowing because we didn’t know what hell we were going to do! Let me proudly say, ¬†Allied Well Drilling of PA, MD and DE did an awesome job getting it right! They were quick and neat (as neat as well drilling could go). Our contact person, Andy, kept […]
