About Us

IMG_1400 copyWe are a family of four, plus one if you include our Airdale Terrier. We have a passion for everything home! My name is Gretchen, I am a stay at home mom to our two children, Sebastian and Penny. Steven is a carpenter/woodworker. We have always had a dream of buying an old home, filled with character but needed some TLC, lots of elbow grease, and imagination to make it our own.

After searching long and hard, we finally found a 1929 center hall colonial and it was love at first sight. The moment we walked into the door we immediately knew that this had to be ours. Our imaginations ran wild with all of the things that we wanted to do to restore it, and although we knew we were taking on a big project, we couldn’t wait to jump in. I have been reading other house blogs for years, following other peoples home and decorating stories and projects and wanted to share ours with you. This is going to be a long project and we want to share our story, learn some things, teach some things, and inspire people along the way.

  3. Also, did you have to remove your cabinets to take out the BlockHead ( I think that is what it’s called?!) Was that difficult? We have the same and are curious how to go about doing it all!!! Thanks you so much!!
