About Angie’s Roost

Here’s the story, of a lovely lady…..no, no, no….not that story!  The story of a lovely lady (Angie…that’s me), her handyman…I mean husband (Colby), and their dastardly dog (Goose) and their misadventures in DIY.  And other stuff too since we tend to get easily distracted.  Who doesn’t love a good post about when Goose learned to swim?  He’s still really bad at it.  Oh…and I can’t forget my travel blogging from my big trip to Russia in 2011.

I bought my first house in May of 2010.  While most girls want move in ready, this girl was looking for a disaster!  I’ve always wanted a fixer upper so that I could make the place mine and have a personal creative outlet to unleash my inner designer fury.  And boy did I find it!  The 1910 old farm house in the heart of Maine was oozing with potential home improvement projects.  It actually looked like the seventies threw up all over the interior of the house.  Don’t believe me?  Check out a few of the before pics here!  Believe me now?

I created this blog as a creative outlet (I love to write and take pictures) but mostly to keep all our friends and family out there updated with our projects and life (hi mom!).  Without further ado, welcome to our home and we hope you enjoy following our adventures as much as we enjoy creating them!
