Casa de Jetplane in the makin'

So first off, thank you all for your support during my recent 'I suck at this' post about our work on our first home. I greatly appreciate it.

I appreciated it even more when I got a comment from Mrs. Limestone, who is a HUGE inspiration to me, as seen in my home office decor.

We all have trials and tribulations dealing with decorating our homes. Trying to determine what our style is and how to mold that into our partner's style, current home furnishings, lifestyle, budget, pets, kids, etc. etc. etc. Its always good to feel you are not alone in that battle.

A lot has been happening at the Jetplanes' household and I'm pretty excited to give you some details later this week with pictures. But just a lil taste of what's to come...


1. Deck is stained
2. Garage is organized and sealed the floor
3. New Furniture is purchased and arrived
4. Front Yard is almost completed

I think that's pretty good for living here under a month so far, don't you?

Side note: We see this house, while a first house for us, as an investment and will be a future rental property when we get stationed somewhere else. All decisions made (excluding painting my office turquoise) are to be cost effective, value adding, and easily maintainable for future renters.
Can't wait to give you all a peek...

I think it is great you are going to hold on the house and rent it later. Smart plan.

I can't believe you've accomplished all that in under a month. Want to help me move next month?

Hey - I wanted to comment last week - after I checked back in with your blog about your meet-up with the other families. . . and I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your candor and honesty - it is refreshing and supportive. I can only imagine the adjustments you have to make. Also - I love the info on your home improvements and the links you provide - Keep up the good work!
