Tom and I have been buying homes to renovate, live in and eventually sell. We are true "do it yourselfers". I work on the designs and my seriously skilled husband does most of the work himself. We create what we love, which for the most part are spaces that are casual and rustic with a touch of European charm. We love the entire creative process associated with design, DIY projects and especially enjoy the salvage and antique excursions to find just the right pieces that can add character and soul to a home. Our current project is our home on the Monterey Peninsula in California. This little house inspired our design style- European Farmhouse, and this blog, where I share its story, along with our projects and adventures while renovating and creating our home.
We've been married for 32 years and have four grown children. Three daughters: Amy, identical twins Briana & Caitlin, and a son, Daniel. We live with two adorable yellow labs and one very old tabby cat.
We both have full time careers. I work as a 1031 Tax Deferred Exchange Specialist assisting Real Estate Investors, and Tom works in the legal field. On nights and weekends, we continue to renovate our home in our current design style-European Farmhouse.
