We are plugging away with our trim. The baseboard on the main level is now complete along with the upstairs room. We have enough to upgrade our basement trim down the road, so we are excited about that. http://capturingroots.com/blog/2015/01/02/more-before-and-after-just-keep-trimming-just-keep-trimming/ http://capturingroots.com/blog/2015/01/02/more-before-and-after-just-keep-trimming-just-keep-trimming/We plan to now add casing and sills to a lot of our windows.


December was a great time to get kicked out of our bed while we finished our bedroom and closet trim. Who wouldn’t want to relax and sleep by a glowing Christmas tree and a wood burning fire?


Here are some more before and after pictures of where we were a year ago and where we are now:


Bathroom by kitchen BEFORE:

Goal for this year:

  • Finishing casing and sill around window.
  • Make a light above the sink.
  • Add a door knob (I’m sure all of our guests will appreciate this one. So far we have been dealing with peepers or stuffing wash clothes into the door knob opening.)


Laundry Room BEFORE:












Goals for this year:

  • Add casing and sill to window.
  • Finish off ceiling can lights
  • Add doors and barn door track system to be able to close this area off

DURING – We closed off the extra door and got rid of the closet opening up into the hallway. This allowed us to have a double vanity.








Goals for this year:

  • Make a light for above sinks
  • Fix vent area above shower
  • Add door hardware for this bathroom too!
