Southwestern Guest Room Reveal

Time for another reveal post! Can you tell I’m trying to tie up loose ends on this house before I completely move onto the next one? Although this room turned out so well that I think I’m just going to move it right into the next house and try to change as little as possible ....more

We have a foundation!

Have you ever caught yourself wondering what roughly $35,000 worth of gravel, concrete, and manual labor would look like? Yes? I knew it ....more

The Flood

This last Memorial Day Texas was hit by devastating floods. It’s hard to imagine now since it hasn’t rained all summer and everything is crispy and dry, but there was water everywhere and it simply wouldn’t stop coming. It’s either feast or famine around here (though usually famine)....more

He just turned four months, but I swear that boy is teething. I instead spent hours online researching stuff for the new house ....more

Exterior Inspiration Pictures

Hey everyone, hope y’all had a great Fourth! So today I’m sharing some of the pictures Adam and I used as inspiration while designing our new home. But first, a public service announcement… If you’re using pinterst to design a new home or remodel an old one, STOP IT ....more

Floor Plan and Elevations for the New House

Here it is, the floor plan and elevations for the new house! I’m not even going to bother with a wordy post, we will have plenty of time to dig into the details later. No one is even reading this anyway, you’ve already scrolled down to see the pictures and I’m basically talking to myself at this point ....more
