When Sleep Doesn’t Come

I don’t know if I’m nesting due to upcoming birth in our home. I’ve been cleaning every room and purging like nobody’s business.

What do you do at night when you can’t sleep?

Read?

Watch TV?

Toss and turn?

All the above?

Currently my mind has gone to the current renovation…. the basement.

I love the planning phase.

I love to research and draw out, measure and allow the internet to fill my brain full of the possibilities.

The middle of the nights are long. Maybe I’m feeling compassion for the kids who will soon be filling their nights with a newborn.

Maybe I’m just a post menopausal woman and sleep is hard.

Whatever the reason, I’ve been searching for small space design tips, saving pictures of things

I love and creating mood boards

280 square feet is not much

It means that every square inch needs a purpose.

It means that you can see every space while standing at the front door.

I’m really enjoying the challenge and I can’t wait for the next step.

But for now……… it’s framed walls and dirty floors

It’s open walls that allow you to see all the way under the big house.

It might not be the fun part of renovation but every step brings us closer to the pretty parts.
