    Easy to Follow Porch Swing Plans

    Last Fall, I built a porch swing bed for my mother-in-law. I documented the process and posted the tutorial here on our blog.

    We’ve heard from a lot of people who have used it to make their own swing, which is awesome! But we’ve also been asked if we had plans for our original swing which was a different design, and was actually the one my mother-in-law ended up with. I built it long before we started this blog, which means I didn’t document the process or take and pictures of being built.

    How to Add a Media Kit Page to your Blog

    If you’re a blogger or influencer and you plan on working with brands, it’s a good idea to have a media kit. If you’re not sure what a media kit is, it’s basically a way to tell a potential partner a little bit about you and what you can do for their brand. It should contain your logo, a bio, your most important social media and blog stats, as well as brands that you’ve previously worked with. You might also want to include your rates and and some testimonials.

    Working with an Architect and Progress on the House Plan

    Brooke has been busy finding vaulted ceiling inspiration like the image above. It’s images like that one that really got her thinking we needed to go vaulted with our great room and kitchen in the new house. We started off searching on line for a stock plan, but we quickly realized that it was going to be impossible to find a plan that had vaulted ceilings and everything else we were looking for. So at that point, we started the search for an architect. This was going to be a completely new process for us since on our other houses we had always used a stock plan and modified it to fit our needs.
