modern dining chairs under $100

Put a tiny house update on Insta Stories today, but not gonna lie I am feeling so panicked about finishing. Is this normal? I just see so much work left lots of which is solely on him. Keeping this between us since (not like its hard he doesn’t read the blog and isn’t on social media. Ha!) I am preaching to the pastor putting that pressure on Russ, and he is still confident in his timelin, luckily! He really always pulls through so, just trying to find my zen and calm the frick down! Ha. You can go catch those … Read more

We are officially in the flooring stage of things and everyday the house feels like so much progress! You can catch a video tour on Instagram Stories and today I wanted to share plans and inspiration and a few design dilemmas that we’ve run into! Tile galore. We opted for tile throughout for its hardiness and wearability. Everything with the exception of the loft is tiled! The loft will have carpet, even though it is my mortal enemy. My plan for sore feet and backs is house slippers for all and area rugs. ūüėČ Black Marble Laundry Pan Floors¬†// White … Read more

Since our last update, Russ has started and nearly completed sheetrock for the house! It’s been a solid month of full days of hanging, but he’s really close to finishing. We spent a lot of time up there on this particular day and it was the most peaceful, spiritual experience for me. It is so quiet up there the only thing I could hear was Russ’ music, the boys playing, the occasional screw driver and Raleigh playing with his truck¬†down a ramp. I can’t describe how lucky I feel to be able to create this life with my family. Let’s … Read more

wallsburg III

I cannot believe the¬†last house update was in September! So much has happened in that amount of time and also it feels like very little has. Ha! We started sheet rock yesterday and I’ve been told drywall means your halfway, so if that’s the case, we’ve got a-while. The thing that truly blows my mind is that the sketch we gave our architect who in turn rendered it and then Russ built it… looks exactly like the drawing. So crazy! We have had to make a few changes but I’ll tell you all about it! So, since our last update … Read more

20 places you need a plug

Last week I asked where you would put a plug or light switch in your house if you could go back in time. Hundreds of DMs later here are the top suggestions in order of popularity! Pantry Closets – all of them. Multiple on and around the kitchen island. Waist high next to each side of the master bed. Plugs and switches. Charging Station- basically wherever you plan on charging devices in the house prepare for several plugs. (I heard at least 8 for Laptops, candle warmer, Alexa, iPhones, diffusers.) Hidden charging station in closet with cleaning supplies. To recharge … Read more

FRYday

Holy smokes this week was nuts. There are so many wonderful things in the pipeline for Small Fry and that always means exhaustion and then waiting and then I get to share. So, step one is hopefully complete for while! We have UEA this weekend so the kids are home and it is also mine and Russ’ 12 year anniversary today! We had plans to go to Vegas for a couple days but we had to cancel due to some needs at the house. So we’re sticking around here! We’d love to go somewhere special for dinner either in Utah … Read more

House update #2 (find the first one here!) as promised! Since we last posted SO much has gotten accomplished. It felt like we were underground for an eternity – with the footings, foundation, underground plumbing, getting the septic and propane in order. And then once we had that done it felt like things have really sped up. It’s so fun to see progress everyday and to see our sketches, our dreams, our heart on the line, take shape. Russ (gratefully) hired a team of 4 or so guys to work on the framing with him and that makes all the … Read more

15 Modern Built-In Beds For Kids

Before we dive in, we’ve got our house-build update #2 post coming next week! (#1 right here.) Woot woot! You’ll be able to see what I’m talking about better then, but ALL the kids will be in the basement, and Russ and I are on the main level. (Yay/Oof!) Since we’re building for long-term, we had to factor what would work when they’re teens, when they’re adults and coming home to visit and basement bedrooms just made more long-term sense! Hayes and Cal talk a big game about wanting their own rooms, but I have a hunch they might end … Read more

Small Fry | Home Build Update

I know I teased¬†our first home build vlog, but with Bijou last week and transitioning Small Fry everything has gotten a little out of whack the last month! I promised you’d get Russ on screen and I swear it’s still coming, I just need like 3 days on a desert island. So while we all wait for me to get my act together, I CAN¬†give you the basics of our plans! And also answer some of the FAQs we get. I have shared updates on my personal Instagram because it didn’t feel right to do so in a partnership here … Read more
