Last week the radiant floor heating tubes were installed in the basement.  We’ve grown to love radiant heat, which, simply put, warms the floors in your home, and performs as the heat source.


The tubes are installed over insulation and are then encased in concrete or Gyp-Crete.  The tubes will eventually have warm water pumping through them, which will heat the concrete and create cozy floors.  I’ve always suffered from incredibly cold hands and feet so this type of heat is a real treat for me.

Once the basement floors are poured, we’ll move on to the framing this week.  We’re looking forward to seeing it take shape!


Stay-at-home mom, Serena Thompson, dreamed of creating a fun and happy little event to sell her vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, she and some friends held the first event in her neighbor’s barn. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today the event fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces filled with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best vintage & handmade fair in the country. Serena describes it as the happiest on earth.
