Hey Mamas : ) Oh my goodness, it's been SO long since I've been on MDC! I have so many new pictures of the progress on our little space that I am going to share my Facebook album public link instead of trying to upload them all here! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.167969886550485.44400.100000124230135&l=e8d0f875b1
There's been even more work done since these were taken, DH teaches at a school that has session in the summer, so they have two short breaks- one at the begining and one at the end of the summer- he is on one break now and is working like crazy to get our greenhouse/entryway/bathroom built. We're 19 weeks pregnant with baby number two and it feels weird to be planning for a home birth in a home that isn't done yet! DH built our table (which is really more like a bar) today and just called me to tell me how beautiful it is! The going is a little slowish only because we are doing the building part debt free (which means lots of rice and beans for dinner lately : P ) It's hard right now but I know we are going to have no regrets about that part of it.
Eventually when I get enough time to sit down and sort it all out, I would like to start a blog about our project and compile a list of all of our research and resources.
Here are some cool things we found recently that we are going to use or incorporate:
Gorgeous low VOC paint- http://www.yolocolorhouse.com/#1
Low VOC floor finish made from renewable resources- http://www.vermontnaturalcoatings.com/store/polywhey-floor-finish-gallon.html
We also got a super cute (tiny!) ceiling fan that I nicknamed Bumble Bee
Here are a few of my favorite recent pictures

LoveBugMama- I am in love with the tiny lofted bed- so sweet AND practical! I also love your organization and shelving- your computer space and couch area look super inviting! I don't have pictures yet but FIL is building all sorts of shelves/ bookcase type things for us so I'll post pictures when we get them up : )
