The New Chapter

Blogging

…I think I’ve forgotten how to write a blog post. Is this thing even on? Hi! We’ve missed you. We aren’t even sure if many of our “back in the day” readers will even see this post, but this is a post we’ve needed to write for some time. If you’re a reader from way back, leave a comment below and say hi and let us know you’re here! Before I get to what the future holds for 7th House, I feel like I have…

Long Time, No Type…

When Pigs Fly / 7thhouseontheleft.com

First off, sorry for the delay in getting this post to the Instagram/Facebook followers. I promised an update post a few weeks ago whilst Greg was making some background site changes.

Two weeks until Thanksgiving. Two weeks, people! I know it sounds cliche, but time has flown by this year. It seems like just a few weeks ago, we were outside bearing the sweltering Virginia heat while working on our little landscaping project. Now… we’re bringing plants inside to protect them from the 29° nights. This weekend, we have a conglomeration of things going on including celebrating my grandpa’s 80th birthday, working on a small update in the guest room and…

WEEKEND READING MATERIAL

The Design Cookbook by Kelly Edwards  /  7th House on the Left

Since we do projects and post them in real-time, you’re normally reading about a project less than 24-hours after it’s been done. That being said, for the past three days, Greg’s been super busy with a project at work, and I’ve been doing a whole lot of nothing due to the fact that I have a killer cold. Not just any cold… the kind that comes with baggage like chest congestion, blowing your nose every three minutes and feeling your…
