I know it’s been a while since you’ve heard from me (Rob), but I’m here to share huge news for us: we have the keys to our new home! Maria and I are renting an adorable house in Royal Oak, one of the coolest suburbs of Detroit.
We’ve been working on painting all weekend, so we’ve been super busy. But we are making great progress and Maria is starting on the last coat in the living room as I type this.
If you’ve been on Instagram lately, you’ve seen that they have added the Stories feature. My Maria, ever the social media bug, has been posting updates of our painting progress all weekend. We’ve got a few of her updates below, but you can keep track of our progress by opening up your Instagram app on your phone and checking us out.
Ok, enough blogging, I need to go help my wife paint!
We can’t wait to give you a tour of our new home when we have it just the way we want it.
Exciting! I can’t wait to see it!
Interesting that you are allowed to paint a rental! Well done!
I wondered the same thing. I never heard of anyone being allowed to paint a rental. Must have a flexible landlord.
Rob Gavin says
Carin and Ann, we’ve been lucky and had very understanding landlords. We’ve rented from individuals, who can be pretty flexible. Also, it helps that we’re pretty much just painting a shade of white, haha!

So happy for you!! Love royal oak so much, would love to live there but it’s just too far from my school on Commerce ;) Congrats on your move!!
Rob Gavin says
Thanks, Kelly! It’s a great town, but I do understand about the commute. Mine was an hour each way before we moved here.
Enjoy! I can’t wait to see the new place. You both have great taste. ♡ You are blessed to have each other.
