Not too many words in this post...
I am in awe and bowing to Mr. HB and his expertise.

His firm has been nominated for a  BC Wood award for their latest project at our local university.
It's all good.

Mr. HB has been working his magic with the help of the tradesmen.....
here at home and things are looking good!

the new cabinet
arts and crafts window details
no hardware yet
it's in transit
from Rejuvenation

Quartz countertop
100 pounds and then some
bevelled edges
(bit of a splurge)
installed this morning.

Wide window ledge
ready for some orchids
or Pepper!

My old stackable Frigidare washer and dryer
still swirling, swishing
washing and drying
and it's been eons!

The lacy knickers are at the drying post
they'll enjoy a new steamy machine :)

Looking for that new set
the LG's or Miele's in every flyer that graces our doorstep....


  1. I would love a handy man, we have to call the AA to change a tyre!

    1. We have BCAA as Mr. HB and myself are not at all excited about changing flats!

  2. Men at Work, Love handy men! I am so excited to find and follow new special places. I have no doubt I will enjoy engaging and supporting this wonderful space you have created. Thank you for sharing, I am so glad to meet you. I hope you will find some time to come visit me soon. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

    1. Hi Special K...
      welcome to the Humble Bungalow.
      I'll pop over and pay you a visit.

  3. Exciting to see something new being created and even more exciting to be nearing the finish line. Congratulations to your hubby!

    1. I am feeling excited looking to the finish myself.
      Can't wait to do a bit of decorating...

  4. Congratulations to your husband for such a great nomination. Looking forward to seeing your new laundry room all finished.

    1. I'll have to host a virtual party when it's complete!

  5. If my husband sees this he will know he is in big trouble! My basement reno is still going on...of course he can only work on it when he isn't at work which doesn't seem like very often these days.

    1. Oh let's not tell your hubby as he sounds far too busy.

  6. Hit enter too soon...Congratulations to your husband!

  7. Congratulations Mr. HB! And looking forward to the unveiling...

  8. Your very own handyman/crafstman! Lucky you!...and congratulations on the nomination to your Mr HB.
    All the improvements look very interesting! I can recommend the LG - great workhorse with lots of versatility.

  9. I have one of those handy husbands, too, and treasure his abilities. What a great affirmation of Mr HB. Your kitchen/home is going to look gorgeous when it's done.

  10. Congratulations to Mr H and his firm.The A&C touches are so in
    keeping with the rest of your house..so looking forward to seeing
    the grand opening.Ida

  11. Congratulations to Mr. H and you!!
    Waiting to see the grand finale :).

  12. Congrats to your husband and his firm. Your reno is already looking splendid -- you must be so looking forward to getting all the finishing details in place.

  13. That countertop is mesmerizing! And congratulations; it is a pleasure to share in one's partner's achievements.
