"Dans le Townhouse" is my Bugs Bunny-esque French for "In the Townhouse".
I'm a turquoise-loving, tile-destroying, fox-feeding, abstract-painting, DIY-loving, design-snooping, puppy-loving city mouse turned country gal. Oh yeah, I have a PhD too. From painting a car to grooming our giant pound puppy, there are few DIY projects I won't try, as long as my Handy Hubby is game too.
I started this blog a year after Hubby and I bought our first house, a townhouse. We've been DIYing together since we met as teens, so of course we bought a fixer upper. We spent years updating our little 1970's townhouse. In 2013 we sold our place (with disappointing results) and moved 1600km to our second house, a lovely but dated year-round cottage on Lake Superior. We're updating this little gem - transforming it from a 1990s oak bonanza into a sleek, mid-century inspired abode - and trying to make our budget stretch while we save for larger-scale renovations down the road.
