    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.

    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.

Thoughts on the matter may vary in different parts of the country, but in our area it is a touchy subject. However, Henry and I both love the look of painted brick and are planning on using it on the exterior, and also in a few places on the interior of the new house.
