the new additions

It's no secret that we've been renovating our house for a really long time. Almost ever since we began renovating, we'd wanted to build a garage. Unfortunately, there were always other projects that were higher priority (read: the rest of the house.)  But with our little house finally renovated from top to bottom, we finally built our garage addition last year.

We're glad we finally got the garage built, because our next addition has been a new car! Our old Hyundai finally died, so over Christmas we had some time to shop around. I am happy to report that after driving my Civic for the last couple of years, Mr. Gryce has been fully converted to a Honda driver for life!  We finally brought home our new Civic this past Saturday and Mr. Gryce is certainly enjoying all the new technology and gadgets that this upgrade brings.

Our third addition will be taking place in the coming months, as we hope to connect the upstairs loft portion to the rest of the upstairs and to finish it into living space.  We're still working on a final blueprint.

Finally, while I have already told you about our addition Chester in a previous post... 

I'm excited to announce that our little family is growing again....

That's right! We are expecting a baby in June!

We can't wait to share this exciting chapter of our lives with you all. Please stay tuned for more updates.


  1. Donna and Jared. congratulations on the upcoming addition!!. I'm so excited and thrilled for you both. Will pray that all goes well with your pregnancy!

    1. Thanks so much, Jenn! We sure appreciate it. We are really blessed and thankful - and overwhelmed with all the support and well-wishes in the last 24 hours!

  2. Building or renovating a home can be quite a struggle. But, patience and perseverance produce fruit when the project is done and you have the home of your dreams. The most fun aspect of creating your perfect home is that you get to put your personality into the planning stage. That way, the home is yours from the start of the project.
