Hello! I'm Suzannah, a serious DIYer and mom of two little ones. Follow along with my DIY fixer upper house renovations, sewing and crafty projects, real food recipes, and de-stressing goals.
I believe you can love your home just the way it is, AND have the power to design and make big changes to make it better.
I'm also the author of DIY Wardrobe Makeovers!

FIRST steps when you move into a new space!

Rent or own, fixer upper or brand new custom, any time you move into a new place it's exciting but also probably overwhelming! You want your home to look and function the way you like, but there's SO much to do. (I know, I am doing it right now.)
How to choose what to do first? And which improvements are much better to do sooner than later? This week on the Your Home Story podcast we're sharing our tips on what to do first (including when to bring that measuring tape and when to start shopping!) and what to wait on and why.

We talk about...

  • Getting rid of stuff before (and after) you move
  • Taking before photos!
  • Cleaning and what to hire out
  • How, what, and when to take measurements
  • Light bulbs
  • Painting
  • Minor updates like switch plates
  • Window coverings (check back to our episode 22 for more on how to choose them!)
  • and LOTS more!!!!

Some repairs for issues that came up in your home inspection can also be first on the list, unfortunately (boring things like replacing an old garbage disposal, we've had to do that the past two houses!). One inspiration we mentioned is Ashley Goldman of The Gold Hive, who revisits her inspection report annually. (Here is her before tour & floor plan, cool to see!) Here's her house tour.
