Michigan House – Plans

As many of you know, Mr. LMB is getting out of the military at the end of this year. It’s going to be a huge change not only because he will be leaving the military, but also because we will be making the move from North Carolina to Michigan. We currently own a house here in NC that we are about to put on the market & we also own a home in Michigan that I blogged about {here} & {here}. In short, we completely gutted the entire house. I’m talking no flooring, no kitchen, nothing. To some that may seem awful, to me it’s probably the most fun thing ever. I just wish I was there & not doing all of this from afar. I will be making a few trips up there in the next few months so expect some updates very soon. & of course when we move home in the fall expect huge before & afters & tons of large DIY projects. I can’t wait! I have been getting a lot of questions lately on our “plans” for the new house so I thought I would share some of our inspiration photos so you can see the direction we are headed for our Michigan house. I really want you guys to be a part of every second of this journey with me, even these times where we are planning & setting everything up to get worked on. Imagine white walls, warm wood floors, white shaker cabinets, subway tile, & lots of light. Today I’m sharing the main large details about the work that will be done on the house this spring & summer.


White shaker style cabinets in the kitchen: I got so many questions about our kitchen tour the other day & why we did not have white cabinets because everyone knows I love white cabinets. Well, it’s simply because we knew that we were moving & didn’t want to take on a project like that. But, in the Michigan house we have picked out white cabinets that are a shaker style. I will be sharing the brand & type in another post.

Subway tile: We are planning on using subway tile as our backsplash in our kitchen like this kitchen from The Inspired Room & possibly in the bathrooms as well. The hard part? The size of the tiles & the color of the grout… I will need your help to decide on that! More on tile decisions later.

Stair runners: Our house is a tri-level so there is a few levels of stairs & we will have wood floors through the whole house, so stair runners will be a must like these from Young House Love.


Warm wood floors: We are doing vinyl wood flooring through out the entire house even the bathrooms & bedrooms. At least that is the plan right now. This week we have a guy going to the house to measure & estimate it all for us. We are wanting a warm wood tone to really contrast with all of the white cabinets & white/neutral walls in the house.


Gray cabinets in the bathroom: We are really wanting to add some gray cabinets in the two bathrooms. We really wanted to do two tone cabinets with white and gray in the kitchen, but for now that isn’t in the cards due to cabinet placement, so gray in the bathroom is perfect.

Wood panel ceilings-  In the second lower living room there was a drop tile ceiling. We removed that ceiling & we will be putting up wood panels & painting them white. In the upper levels there is popcorn ceilings that we may also be paneling over as well, but that will be a DIY project that will be done after we move in.



Carrera marble countertops: We are going in between carrera marble or DIY cement countertops for the kitchen and bathrooms. The winer so far is carrera marble like this one from DIY Show Off. We both love the simplicity & beauty of it. We also love how it looks with white cabinets & subway tile. 


So many other things will be happening like all new windows, trim, & doors. & it’s crazy to think this is all happening before we move in next fall. To follow along with all of our pins & planning follow my Pinterest boards {here}. & of course check back here on the blog, Instagram, & facebook for updates. So what do you think of our plans so far? Have you ever gutted a house & re-did it before? It’s quite crazy for us to be doing it so many miles away, but I’m hoping the visits home will be productive & make this seem a little more real. Leave your thoughts & opinions below!
