A Totally Remodeled Home and It's Available Now! A Dream Home Once Again….

We had a grand adventure the last few months. We did a total remodel of a cute house in a kid friendly cul-de-sac in the city of Provo (Utah).  The house was in good solid condition but it needed a total update.  In fact Builder Chad changed, remodeled, gutted and rebuilt everything in the home except for the upstairs bath tub.  So basically it is a brand new house in a beautifully established neighborhood. A Dream Home!


The kitchen was built in a U-Shape and was basically closed off to the dining/family room that was just to the north.  We gutted the entire kitchen including the pantry and the laminate flooring. We removed the out-dated soffit around the ceiling, the cabinets and appliances and took down the wall the separated the two rooms.

With the wall gone you now have an open view from both rooms and the kitchen is so much larger. You cold get a lot of people in this kitchen cooking and helping with the preparation now.  The white cabinets lightened up the area too. Everything in this Kitchen is brand new including the subway tile back splash.

View from the family room/dining room. There was a wall where the bar now sits. 

Here's the view of the side of the kitchen and the pantry.  We painted the walls a beautiful light grey with the base and trim a fresh white paint.

The countertops are granite and we purchased new stainless steel appliances. (Whirlpool)  We installed wood flooring from the front door to the back of the house. The pantry shelves were replaced with adjustable shelves so you could store big and small items. The large opening is for the refrigerator, of course. What a difference!  We are very happy with this transformation! 

The fireplace was basically a wood burning stove that needed to go along with the rock. The mantle is on the floor in front of the fireplace.  Builder Chad had a time getting the rock off of the wall but he did prevail. Everything had to go. We put new rock on it and converted it to a gas fireplace.  

We love this grey stone and it was, I wouldn't say easy, but it was a good project and we were pleased with it when we were finished.  The mantle was purchased at Euclid in Heber. There is plenty or room above the mantle for a good sized TV. There are also two large windows so you have plenty of north facing light. A warm fire and a great movie would make a nice evening for the family.

I love that we live so close to this to Euclid!  They do amazing work at this place ! We get all our wood/mantles at Euclid Timber. 

Here is the lovely piece of wood that we turn it into a lovely mantle. 

This house is currently for sale and we would love for you to come by and see it.  It's in Provo in the Riverbottoms. If you have access to the MLS then look up this number to see more photos and get more information about the house—1534696 (Agent Scott Murray-Rock Canyon Real Estate) or email us and we'll arrange it for you.  You've gotta see the entire house! 

Check back soon as we are showing more Before and After photos including a totally gutted and enlarged master bedroom and bath.

Check out our Teacher Appreciation Candy Bar Wrappers-So Much Fun To Give!

We've been on a roll lately with fun ideas for Hershey candy bar wraps. I will confess that I LOVE Hershey chocolate and here's our newest design for a Teacher Appreciation gift. What better way to say  "THANKS" to your children's teachers than with a Hershey chocolate bar and a sweet message. Our kit is super simple to put together. Whether you're  a beginning crafter or a seasoned crafter you can put these together with no problems.  Give teacher something unique, new and sweet! 

We purchased this container at Hobby Lobby. It was $5.99 after using the 50% coupon.  Then we filled it with brown crinkle paper. (you can find crinkle paper at The Dollar Store for $1)  You could also get a large clear cellophane bag to put the whole thing in. The Paper Store and More in Orem, Ut has large clear bags just for this purpose.

5 different messages for the teacher makes this such a fun gift.  All the supplies are included....all you need is glue and a Hershey Bar. Easy to follow instructions are included.

Each kit comes with 5 wraps in 5 different colors and 5 different messages. (red, green, orange, yellow and blue)  You can order up to 5 kits if you like.

Also included in the kit are clear cellophane bags so you can "Gift Wrap" each individual wrapped candy bar. Just fill out the tag and tie it up with the twine.

This container is just the right size to put the 5 candy bar wraps inside but any container will work. A apple crate, apple basket or any wire baskets will work. Hobby Lobby has an amazing assortment of baskets to choose from.

Sweet Ideas for Father's Day Gifts-Gotta See! Gifts For Your Dad

Does Dad have a sweet tooth? This wrapped Hershey chocolate bar is the perfect gift for him.  Fill a container with a mixture of each design. Is Dad a fisherman, a sportsman and a business man?  Fill a container with all designs or select the one that reflects Dad the best.

Here's a fun design for the Dad that is all business.  The heart pinned to the twine says "I love you Dad"  It's a kit that comes with everything all cut out and ready to assemble.  If you can glue and use foam dots then you've got it.  

The outdoor sportsman will appreciate this one with the fishing pole an fish on it. "My Dad is awesome"  We think the navy blue cardstock and the green cardstock really compliment each other and are very masculine. 

It's football all the way for your Dad and so this is perfect for him. The football and "My Dad" are popping off the paper by using foam dots.

These candy bar wraps even come with a cellophane bag and twine to tie it up so you've now got a gift wrapped present for Dad.  It's a unique design.

Candy bar wraps make the perfect party favor. Whether it's a birthday or another kind of celebration. You can choose what tag you need for your wraps.  (See more tags below) 

You're having a slumber party, a birthday party, a Welcome Spring or Summer party.....or you are just barbecuing for family and friends......We've got you covered!  We've even got a friend that uses the Happy Birthday tag for the candy bar wraps and gives them to the senior citizens in her ward on their birthday.  (They put a smile on their face)

Decorated straws are a kids favorite thing. They add something special to your celebration. These party straws come pre-made for you so you don't have to do anything. Choose from bumblebee straws or ladybug straws or some of each kind.

A sweet gift of a chocolate Hershey candy bar will make all your guests happy.

These party straws will add something special to a outdoor summer dinner too. Are you barbecuing this summer? Of course you are. Get some ladybug and bumblebee straws for that event. 

Here's a closeup of the ladybug cutout. Comes fully assembled. All you do is attach with a foam dot to the treat box and/or the candy bar wrappers. Isn't she cute!

We've even got you covered for one type of treat you can put into the treat boxes. These ladybug Hershey nugget wraps come in black, red and white.  You could put several in a treat box.  It's a digital file that you download. Hershey kisses are great for the treat boxes as are other wrapped treats like mini size candy bars or snack size bars. 

This little bumblebee has beautiful wings of transparent white and cute black antennas.  The flowers on the top have yellow enamel dots for the flower centers.  Our treat boxes are simple to assemble. Easy to follow application instructions are always included in all our kits.

You could fill the treat boxes with crinkle paper if you like. It's an optional step.  Crinkle paper is available at The Dollar Store for just $1 in a lot of different colors. It is also available at your favorite craft store.

Here's a front and side view of the treat box.  The back flap is secured with a foam dot. We include the foam dots you need to assemble these boxes. All you supply is craft glue or double-sided tape. 

A gift card would also fit inside this box. Have a fun Summer night get-to-gether with our treat boxes, candy bar wrappers and straws.
