I live in San Diego with three crazy but amazing boys, two wild dogs and a fabulous handy husband. We have a huge love for DIY! We enjoy turning our little slice of suburbia into our dream home while remaining functional and practical. Over the past 12 years we have little by little worked at making our cookie cutter house into the home of our dreams.
~Hope you enjoy the tour~
One of our first projects was turning three small rooms (living, dining, family) into one large great room by knocking down a wall. This created a space that was 100% usable and functional which was so important for us.
We turned the fireplace around so it became the focal point of our home, you can see more pictures here.
One of my favorite seasons is fall and I love to add little touches of it around our home.
I guess since I am showing you the front of the home I should show you the entrance.
The Kitchen renovation was one of our biggest accomplishments. We went from builder grade to custom made with lots of paint, elbow grease and trim.
You can find all the details below
With three boys we were quickly running our of space. We converted part of the garage into a Craft/mud/play room which has come in very handy.
We recently completed adding wood floors to our Master Bedroom, after 12 years I don’t want to know what was lurking below the carpet, yuck.
Back in July of 2011 a candle burned our Guest Bathroom down, we were very fortunate that was the only loss and everyone was safe.
The beginning of 2012 I tackled the Loft by repainting the desk and bookshelves and making it more of a hangout for the boys.
We have lots of family that stays with us on a regular basis so it was important to have our Guest room as comfortable as possible for them.
Two of our boys share a room and we are in the process of updating our oldest room.
We had lots of fun transforming the boys bathroom into a beachy escape for them.
Living in San Diego we are blessed to have wonderful weather so we have created a space where we can relax and entertain in our back yard.
The last few months we have been working hard at updating our dated bathroom, we are almost finished, stay tuned!
I think that completes the tour.
