Hello world!

May 15, 2014

“Hello world” seems like an appropriate title for my first entry. I’ve spent a few days (and nights) tinkering with this site and although I was familiar with HTML before, modern day programming is a whole new world to me. CSS, php, JavaScript, WordPress, Widgets, Plugins, it’s impossible to keep up! Props to the smart folks that set it all to begin with.

Enough about techie stuff.

What will this blog be about?


Last year, in October, we bought our first home, a 2 story, 2 bedroom, 1 and 2 half bathrooms townhouse with shared walls. We are extremely excited to own a piece of property. The home was built in 1970, and although it is in a great shape, there are still a ton of updates we want to do to it. We are learning as we go and will be sharing  our experiences and projects with you. One thing that we have already learned, is that home renovations is a long process, especially when you are doing most of the work yourself. It requires a lot of homework, research, trips to hardware stores, and patience, lots and lots of patience!

P.S. A big shout out to my friend Katya V. for helping me brand my site and designing the RedBarberry logo!

P.P.S. I am still working on filling the pages up with content, so please bear with me.
