Our first renovation together was our first home together back in 1986 on Sharon Drive in New Orleans. 

Tom started tearing out the walls of our first house together while I was away at choir practice.  I walked in to see the dust settling over everything in the house - including the wedding gifts!

That renovation opened the new kitchen up to the dining and living areas AND totally changed my life!

I still remember the wall colors we chose were so mid-80's:  Salmon Pink in the kitchen and Jamestown Blue in the living areas.

They say that living through a renovation is one of life's most stressful situations. We won't say it's not stressful, but you have to keep your eye on the goal, not the sheetrock dust that has infiltrated everything else.

We hope you will enjoy watching the sheetrock dust fly as we tackle the biggest project to date!
