#framefarme: mud + garage

#framefarme mud + garage

I feel like I always come in from the car with my hands full of groceries, babies, the babies’ stuff (he’s obsessed with carrying his backpack around) and messing with keys is just not gonna happen. Kwikset partnered up with us for our home build and one of their awesome locks solved all my full-hands problems! Their Kevo line is all smart, blue tooth technology locks and we have loved the look of their Contemporary lock! You sync it on your phone with an app and then all you have to do is wave your hand across the lock and … Read more

#framefarme: ali express

Ali Express Faucet - $90

If you’ve been around for awhile you know we purchased a lot of of our home stuff via Ali Express. Ali Express is a branch of Ali Baba which is basically a direct link to shop in China. They cut out the middle man and you buy right from them, saving a TON of money. I know people have fears and worries about factory conditions, quality etc. Ali Express is like Amazon in the sense that Ali represents thousands of smaller companies. Lots of which show you pictures of their factories right in their shop home page. There are reviews … Read more

#framefarme FAQ links

I’m glad you guys are enjoying the house posts lately because I feel like it’s taking up ALL my brain space. Can’t seem to think about much else currently, so my apologies if you are over it!! But, I wanted to put together a post of all the house links you guys have asked about as I’ve shared peeks here and there! So how about a FRYday meets FAQs for you today! I did a quick series about ways I’m trying to simplify some of the everyday processes with my kids. This one got a lot of questions after the … Read more

white coffee table books

Modern White Entry Way

I pitched this question the other day on Instagram because I was on the hunt for coffee table books with white spines for my entry. Runner // Light custom order from Echo Neon (Ten-Twenty is our anniversary! 10/20/2005) // Credenza – Besta via Ikea! (high gloss Selsviken fronts) // Custom Door via CBW Doors // String of Bananas plant (locally for $30 at Cook’s!) You’d think it wouldn’t be that hard, but since you can’t usually see the spine in any online images, and so many of the books I have or saw in stores had white covers, but a different … Read more

Frame Home Tour

Have you ever heard the saying “Write from your scars, not your wounds”? The last few weeks was all so fresh with the move I just found myself with nothing to say. Not that I have any wounds from this experience, but you get the idea. So, I have just taken my sweet time! To experience it all just for me, just with the fam, and let all the feelings move through me. You better believe I still RAN outside to get a pic of this sunset though. I am starting to feel things become more settled (school helped SO much!), … Read more

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. 😉 Black Marble Laundry Pan Floors // White … Read more

wallsburg IV

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
