6 Things To Look For When Buying Your Home | Ferguson Place

Well, it’s something we all say to ourselves or think inside our heads. All the things we want when we buy our home. Yah, know, the dream things… like white kitchens and sound proof walls. How windows overlook certain areas. I remember when we used to rent and we would dream all the things homeowners get to enjoy. The little things that make life just a little easier at home.

Home Security Anytime, Anywhere with August Lock | Best Buy Canada

I’m not sure if it’s just Drew and I but we get overly excited when we find new gadgets that we get to learn more about and play with. Especially when it comes to our home! Best Buy is always surprising us with fun things like this. We recently had the chance to learn more about the August Smart Lock Pro + Connect. I mean this smart lock is the smartest thing we have installed. It’s full of bells and whistles to keep your family safe and your home safe.  

First things first, we got out the manual and started to read all about August Locks and how to install. All the cool things it can do and how simple it can really make life for a busy family always on the go. You’d be super surprised to learn that installation only took us at the most 20 minutes. No locksmith was needed at all. It was just as simple as screwing off your old lock inside and placing the August Lock up and screwing that in. Only the interior lock gets changed while the outside stays exactly the same.

Finding That Perfect Dining Room Light | Before & After

It’s super crazy to think that we’ve been in our home now for just over three years. To watch it slowly and progressively change day by day is insane. I mean all of these changes have been made by us and with a small budget. So when we finally refresh something even just a little it feels like a million dollars in this place!

With each new project we get prouder and prouder of each other for accomplishing. We just recently started to search for some new dining room fixtures and found tons on Troy Lighting. I mean tons! It was really hard to decided but we found one.

Don’t get me wrong I loved the one we did have but in the space it just didnt seem like the best fit. It was chunky and long. It seemed that it was squeezed into a small space on our table instead of being spread out with more room and less bulkiness. Drew figured out how to install all by himself with only minor help from me. He did such an amazing job!

I’m so proud of him!

Measurements were perfect and the look is way better in our dining room. I love the look of it and love to look back over the years to where it was to where it is now! Love our home and the way we are making it our own in our own ways!

Bright Ideas about Recycling Your Light Bulbs. Q&A

If there is one thing blatantly obvious in our home, it’s the fact that I love lamps. I’m a sucker for that dim cozy light in every room you walk into. Soft and soothing, it’s just so relaxing to me. Every room in our home has a lamp. With that comes a large amount of light bulbs. Every light bulb in our home does get recycled properly thanks to learning more about light recycling. But like myself, I’m sure you have some questions and need a little help in the right direction when it comes to recycling light bulbs. Where to take them? Why we do it? The benefits?

ENDY Giving You A Good Nights Sleep | Q&A

For months I have been receiving so many questions about our Endy Mattress. Today I’m sharing some Q&A and how much we love it! Drew and I first received our queen sized mattress, queen sized pillows and sheets last October. It’s been such a dream (literally) to have this mattress to ourselves every night. I remember the first day it arrived how exciting it was to quickly open and set up. Our first night we slept on it and looked at each other in the morning asking the same question “How did you sleep?” We both answered the same way. When we fell for Endy we both fell hard!…

This home project feels like it’s been taking us forever, in reality it really hasn’t. But because it was on our “list to do” since finishing our bedroom it feels over due.
