Happy One Year, Casa Crustante! A Year in Review.

Today marks ONE YEAR since moving into our little Casa Crustante.   It took us 80 days of renovation to make this little home habitable, along with plenty of tears, a mountain of paperwork, and gallons of alcoholic beverages.

It looked like this:
With a shed like this:

An interior like this:

Then we gutted it.  Seriously gutted it.

But soon, the transformation was complete.  Our little foreclosed house evolved.  

The shed transformed into something less hideous:

The kitchen ended up being something worth cooking in:

Once we moved in, the momentum continued.  A chicken coop was started.

 And finished.

Baby chicks were hatched.

Those chicks quickly grew up.

A corgi was added to the family.

A boat started.

Not a bad first year of home ownership.  Onwards!


  1. Happy one year! Hard to believe one year has already passed. I remember when Casa Crustante was actually... uh... Crusty. Heh.

    Cheers to you and your future years in this wonderful home you've made yours. Can't wait to see the scamp too!

    1. Thank you, Pear!! I hope that I'll have something worth showing SCAMP-wise someday. :) This year has flown by!
