The Memorial House: Year(s) In Review

Its the end of a year, and that means it’s time for DIY nostalgia–thinking about all the projects I’ve completed, knuckles I’ve scraped, holes I’ve dug, ladders I’ve fallen off of, pieces of drywall I’ve hung, and number of fingers I’ve managed not to forcibly remove with a power tool. 2009, you’ve been fun, but you just won’t be able to hold a candle to the kind of badass projects we’re taking on in 2010.

Robin over at Three Acres had a wonderful idea to do a visual timeline of the last 20 months of their home ownership and I thought it was an awesome way to take a look back at all that had been accomplished.

Then I almost fell out of my chair and died at the thought of re-posting all of those pictures here. Luckily I found a fun little tool over at Timetoast that helps create these interactive timelines in a jiff.

Yeah, I just used the word “jiff” but instead of making fun of me, why don’t you check out this timeline of the progress on the Memorial Property so far instead?

Most days it feels like I should have accomplished more in the last year and a half, and I know the workload doesn’t even compare to what’s coming up in our future, but all in all we’ve made some good progress. Enough so that I’m waving this year off fondly, so Happy New Year to all you housebloggers, DIY fans, family, friends, and other people of awesomeness.

See you all in 2010!

  1. Thanks for the link! LOL, yeah that post took me a couple of weeks to Photoshop, upload pictures, and hand write out the html. But your Timetoast thingy is awesome because you can explain everything! (noting for later)

    Hope you have a Happy New Year!

  2. I seriously love your site.. Pleasant colors &
    theme. Did you develop this website yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my own personal website and want to learn where you got this from or what the theme is named. Cheers!
