We have grass!

It’s been a busy few weeks on Burns Lane! We have interior and exterior lighting, we have grass & gardens, front/back flagstone and side walkways are completed, glass showers are installed, and the driveway is ready to be paved. This week the quartz countertops will be installed, and kitchen/laundry/washroom sinks will be next, carpets in the two bedrooms, and staining of the staircase will be underway. We also conditionally sold the townhouse this week, so it looks like a move to the ‘burbs will be imminent (yikes!)

EandLee’s Favourite Things

I am not confident that I will be able to write a Pulitzer winning piece today, so instead I have compiled a list of our favourite features in the house. Starting with #10…

#10 – The NYC Styled car lift

#9 – Surveillance Cameras

Don’t steal the toilet paper roll…We’re watching you!

#8 – This fireplace

For those nights when a glass of wine is needed and a friend who never gets tired listening to my dramas over and over again

#7  – George’s shower

#6 – Master Bedroom Balcony – Cool, right? My idea!

#5 – The powder room inspired by below

#4 – Gas line to the backyard for this!

#3 – Our kitchen – LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

#2 – The Tree! –  the tree that has caused many sleepless nights, calls with lawyers, and captured the attention of every trade coming through the house. It’s become my 2nd favourite thing about the house. Go figure!

#1 – The freestanding bathtub – Can’t wait!


Best Gift!

For my 25th birthday (pfffft), Jess had this canvas picture produced for me. Isn’t it awesome?? This picture was taken a week before the demolition and was posted earlier in this blog. I can’t wait to find a home for it in the new house but for now it lives on the wall of our townhouse. Love it! Thanks Sista!gift from jess


Get Your Twerk On

Since E& is now a mature blog with hundreds of page clicks (see bottom left for the counter) and probably 3 followers (ourselves, my mom, Elliot), we have added a video compilation of the build to-date to keep you coming back! As you can tell, the blogger (me) is still inexperienced at this whole blog thing and have yet to determine how to post one video vs. three. Nevertheless, turn up those speakers and start practicing your twerk (or your Blurred Lines backwards bicycle moves – you know who you are!)
