Yo homeslice, I’m Kenz. Thanks for stopping by. If you are a reader of this blog, let’s throw the term “follower” right out the window and replace it with friend. Ah, much better.
You’re on this page because you want to know more about me. So here’s the dirt:
This is me and Aaron.
We jumped the broom on April 8th, 2011.
Aaron and I bought our first house, a dusty blue ranch in the greater Salt Lake area. It was a 1980′s Rambler. She was dubbed Green Meadow Manor. GMM for short. We worked our pants off to create a home we truly loved.
We sold our beloved starter in May 2014, and built our current house over the summer.
This blog documents our efforts to turn “builder-grade” into custom on a tight budget.
My design philosophy is that if it makes you happy and looks the way YOU want it to, then nothing else matters. Who cares if people judge my house? Extreme humiliation should not keep us from creating beautiful things! Let us be brave if we must. And we must.
Ever since I was 16 years old, different doctors told me I’d probably never be able to have children, and that my chances were less than 10%. We got the surprise of a lifetime after coming home from Disneyland in April.
Evelyn Faye Crowder was welcomed into our family on December 23, 2013.
10 Useless facts about me:
-My first major in college was Art History.
-I have my pilot’s license.
-I play first Violin in a symphony. The rehearsals are on Saturday mornings and cut into my DIYing time, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
-I am scuba certified.
-I have been sky diving twice.
-I hate onions.
-U2 was my first favorite band, when I was 6.
-I love musicals with a wild passion.
-My favorite car I’ve ever had was my 1995 Grand Voyager mini van when I was 16. Thing could off-road like you wouldn’t believe. (I also had blue hair. It was a horrid phase.)
-I have PCOS, and I deal with it by way of a gluten free/sugar free lifestyle. And if you need a soul-cyster, you’ve got one.
Now that you know me, I want to get to know you! That’s what makes blogging fun for me.
