    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.

    Is a Three Car Garage Worth the Extra Cost?

    Is a three car garage worth the extra cost? This is a great question! It is one we always ask ourself before we start a new build. If doing a poll, I’m sure most would vote to do a three car garage, but the number one thing holding people back would be the cost and the space.

    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.

    Dark Home Office Inspiration and Ideas

    If you look at my feed and home, you will find out very quickly, I am a lover of light neutral colors. Although this is true, I do find that there are places where darker colors are appropriate. For instance, I love a dark accent wall, darker painted interior doors, or even an entire office painted with a darker color.
