By: Alicia Feb 12, 2014

Curbly House Mudroom & Laundry Room

Sheesh. Apologies to Mr. Shakespeare. Anyway, as you might know, our family is in the middle of a very exciting house addition (you can follow along in the Curbly House section of this site). A big part of keeping a large-scale project like this moving forward is the ability to make decisions (hopefully good ones) quickly without second-guessing yourself.
