In August ’14 we moved from just outside Chicago to Wisconsin (south of Milwaukee). We were ready for a change and when Evan got a great job opportunity, we were excited to stretch our legs and have some more space. So we bought this hunk of a house and are slowly bringing our sense of design to each of the rooms. It is a big house, and our family is a lot busier these days than in the past so our speed of DIYing has slowed a bit. All of the rooms are currently still in progress, and many as you will see haven’t even been touched. But we love our home and are picking away at it room by room.
One of the biggest reasons we bought the house was because of the location. We saw it as a house that we could grow into and raise our family in.
Walking by the pond is one of our favorite weeknight activities to do as a family. We try to do it every night with the dogs.
