When we first purchased this home, one of its charming quirks was a Geriatric Walk-In bathtub, complete with LED lights and whirlpool jets. I was about 4 months pregnant at the time of move-in so I loved having a nice space to soak and relax, but Dillon was a bit too tall to be able to enjoy the bathtub in the same way. We knew we would need to rethink the bathroom, not only for aesthetics, but also for functionality.Read More
When we first looked at this house, I immediately knew that I wanted this space to become a nursery. It only had one window, meaning that during the day, the light is minimal (perfect for naps). The location of this room is also perfect as it is right next to what we have deemed the master (though all of the rooms are 30' x 30' max). As I continue to post before and after photos of our house, you'll notice the copious amount of paneling. IRead More
Each year around the beginning of November we begin to think through Christmas ideas for friends and family.

When we initially purchased this house, we had known that it would be full of projects and opportunities to make the space our own. We have been slowly working on the interior with painting all of the bedrooms and hanging decor, but we knew that one of the first projects we would need to take on was the roof. Obviously, a new roof isn't the sexiest project, nor is it something that you can see and appreciate daily (like a new kitchen or flooring), but its definitely an important feature and something we were thankful we could replace. Thanks to our family and friends who helped us knock out this massive project in just one day!Read More
Dillon and I have always enjoyed gift-giving and trying to creatively use our skills and talents to creatively find ways to give to others. So it came to no surprise to me that when me sister and now brother-in-law got engaged, Dillon asked me if he could make them something for a wedding gift. They could pick it out and design it to fit their needs, and he was given a fun project to work on. Perfect trade.Read More
