Our First Home

My husband and I purchased our first home together in 2004, building from the ground up. There are so many advantages to building a brand new home, I would definitely do it all over again, especially knowing what I know now.

These are pictures from our first home.

The foyer entrance, my husband installed the picture frames on the 2 story foyer walls.


Honey oak floors were all the rage in the early 2000’s.Unknown-64

We installed and painted all the picture box wainscoting throughout the house.Unknown-65



Shortly after we moved in and had the whole house painted beige, my grey obsession started.

One of my first renovation projects was to repaint the living room to more modern grey tones.Web_Main Level-Living Room_1
