After we finished the prep for the countertops it was time for pouring the concrete countertops. The overall time for the pouring process
Hello there. Welcome to The Humble Grain. We are Matt and Whitney and we have started this blog to document and share our lives. Along the way we hope to share our house projects, travels and our adventures of life.
We bought our first house about two years ago, during the Summer of 2014. We knew exactly what we wanted, a nice older one story house, two car garage, large trees and an open floor plan. Well, that’s not what we got. Instead, we ended up with a two story house with a fairly closed floor plan, converted garage, and no trees in the back yard. Of course we loved it the minute we walked in and all those things we thought we wanted didn’t seem important anymore. We could make this house into something we would love.
These past two years have included lots of painting, some built-in building and a complete bathroom renovation. While we have done so much to make this house ours, we still have many projects we want to complete. Some bigger ones like new flooring, a new kitchen and master bathroom as well as smaller ones like closet systems, new light fixtures, ceiling fans and other little things here and there.
We really enjoy completing projects all on our own (with some help from our family) and as affordably as possible.
We hope you enjoy our blog and all the things we do to make this house of ours a home for us.
