From Builder Basic to Beautiful


News Flash! We’re No Longer “Flashing”



This may be the single most exciting thing that has happened since our offer was accepted and we closed on our house. It’s amazing how something so small can make such a big difference. I didn’t even realize how much it bothered me until the blinds were up. The house is instantly more homey.

Apparently once I’m not subconsciously worried that the neighbors are spying on us with binoculars its much easier to relax and enjoy being home. I was pushing hard to get the master bedroom and bathroom blinds up – as far as I was concerned the rest could wait. But Ken is a doer and he outfitted the entire house in one weekend.

Our first weekend guests post blinds will appreciate it as well. Especially since the guest room is the only bedroom whose windows face east… now they will be able to sleep past sunrise.

Was there one small but impactful update to your home that suddenly turned it from just a house to a home?
