It’s great to see Contractors passionate about not just remodeling houses, but helping turn whole neighborhoods around. 👏🏼 #Repost@jon_dawson
This has been a huge project!
We don’t just go into houses looking for the cheapest way to get it done. That is why We don’t like being called “flippers” or even “Real Estate Investor”. We go into each project with the intention to bring the home back to life as well as the neighborhood it is in! We don’t want to just put in a few bucks and try and get a few more bucks out of it. We want to put time, care, thought, and most of all Life back into these properties and neighborhoods.

This storybook house is in Huntsville, Alabama, the Rocket City 🚀.
Here in Cleveland, we’re called the Forest City. What’s your city’s nickname?

When all the world seems turned upside down, a quiet corner at home becomes a haven . I went on a vigil this evening with thousands of fellow New Zealanders, including my Syrian friends who came here as refugees, having left behind torture and bombings. I left feeling a bit empty, but so blessed to have a cosy tranquil space to call home and good kind people around me. #serenity#hyggehome#passementerie#reddecor#antiquehome#artsandcraftshomes
I volunteer at an old house museum and it just so happens to be where Ross and I got married. Gushy stuff aside, it’s a pretty special spot. I shared a peak at the interior of the 1905 house in my Stories today, check it out! 📷 by @stacykeck
Latest work featuring architect @lincolnmilesarchitecture and visual artist @lisa.traxler. These two are a joy to be around and their visionary creativity is something to behold. Just take a look at the beautiful home they co-created out of an abandoned World War II Bunker…overlooking the gorgeous southern coast of the #IsleofWight . I believe this is one of the better things I’ve made so if you have 7 minutes to watch, link’s in my bio. Thanks for commissioning this @Richlite!

I love snow too... not a fan of driving in it though. Sidebar I never knew Arkansas got snowed on. Beautiful blue skies... that’s a rare sight with snow!
Yes it’s another snow pic of our home. I love snow and I don’t care who knows it. And this time the Christmas lights are down! It’s a celebration all the way around
We adore our 80-year-old foursquare; it is truly a reflection of our family. Yesterday I was working at the dining room table and glanced into the living room. Those floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, the radiator covers and coffee table...all were designed and lovingly hand-built by @michaelallenstudio. He designed one cover with three-dimensional cattails as an accent. The coffee table has mushrooms inlaid at the base of each of its legs. The Viking ship? He and Benjamin designed and built it too! I also see antique textbooks (gifts from my parents and a good friend) and a hurricane lamp, bought on our honeymoon.
The table lamp belonged to my grandparents, as did the side table (out of frame). The hand-turned mushrooms were all made for me by my Benjamin...the box on which some of them sit was handmade by my father-in-law and held my engagement ring. See that gnome there on the bookshelves? He was hand-sculpted by my mom...and the mohair hedgehog next to him? Hand-made by my mom. The shelves also display minerals and bones, a wasp's nest and turtle shell...all found by my dad. The skull was found by my mom when we were hunting for morels. The red marble apple was given to me by Michael - when I earned my teaching certificate. Those are *my* shelves. Less visible are Michael's shelves which display an antique paint set (a gift from my parents), a handmade clock built by his Pap Pap, brass Peerage monkeys that belonged to his Nana and myriad art books (some of which belonged to his Grandpa, also a painter). Three Gwen Frostic books (circa 50s & 60s) featuring her lovely block prints are found on the second shelf of our coffee table, a wood decoy carved by my grandfather rests beside them. Michael's paintings and drawings adorn our walls. The room is filled with stacks of photographs. They are my maternal ancestors. For weeks their images have graced nearly every surface and covered our floor. With my mom's help, I have recently had the pleasure of learning about many of my late relatives. Images now reside in my mind alongside names....

We will be posting our favorite photos of Phillip’s house over the next few weeks.
Earlier this year we lost our long time client and friend to cancer. Phillip Auth had very specific taste and loved supporting artisans. Over the years we made it our mission to help him transform his house into the home of his dreams. We don't always get to work with people who share our vision and love of traditional craftsman style, but when we do, great things happen.

Let it snow! ⛄️ #Repost@hollandavenuehome
We were supposed to get a lot of snow last week, so I bought groceries and mentally prepared myself for a weekend of snowy retreat indoors. We didn’t get any snow. 🤷🏼♀️ We are supposed to get a lot of snow this week, so I am mentally preparing myself again for a snowy retreat indoors. Hopefully it will be as peaceful and pretty as this big snow from last winter. As long as I don’t have to drive in it, I love the snow!
What about you? Do you get snow where you live?

It’s worth seeking out vestiges of the Arts & Crafts movement in glorious Colorado’s foothills and beyond #linkinbio .
