    Planning and Designing a New Porch Swing Bed

    It’s no secret that we kinda like porch swings. I think every porch needs a swing to enjoy and relax on. We have had some type of swing at most every home we have ever lived in, and we know that has been a few. There is just something about a swing that takes me back to when I was younger sitting on my grandmothers porch. I have fond family memories of swinging and relaxing on the back porch. I can’t imagine having a house without one!

    The Benefits of a Butler’s Pantry

    So when we started planning for this build, we discussed lots of things, but a pantry was not one of them. Im not the typical mother or wife that cooks every night or has a stash of food in the cabinets. Actually, I would be kind of embarrassed to show you my pantry right now. You would probably call me a horrible mother or think that I do not feed my children. I can assure you this is not the case, but I do not buy in excess and really don’t have much need for a huge pantry.

    Master Bathroom Inspiration and Ideas

    As we are in the planning stage of our new custom build, it is very important to think about each detail and each room. Henry and I plan each room separately. They will all follow the same overall theme, but each will have features making them unique.

    Mudroom Inspiration and Ideas

    A mudroom is a high traffic area and a place where you as a family will enter and leave every single day. It’s where the clutter gathers and even sometimes where the dog takes a bath. It may be one of the most used rooms of your home. So, it is really important to take some time and make sure it is functional for your family.
