I wish I was presenting something a little more exciting than a small bathroom, but small bathroom means small blog. My favorite kind of blog 😉. I keep a tidy house, but it is definitely not photo worthy at any given moment. This bathroom, though... It is basically always photo worthy because it is small… Continue reading Creekside Keeper: Main Floor Bathroom
Heyyyyy there! I am back with the loooooong overdue living room reveal! I never imagined that it would take me a year and some change to get around to shooting the living room, but that's how the cookie crumbled. Living rooms in today's open concept floor plans are so much more than JUST the living… Continue reading Creekside Custom: Living Room Reveal
When the main level of your home is an entire story above the backyard, a big deck is big deal! It is your savior from having to hike down a flight of stairs to enjoy the great outdoors. Said like a true lazy American 🙂 . It also makes a great kid play pen since… Continue reading Creekside Custom Deck Reveal
During our home building process, I utilized Pinterest more than any other resource. When Trent would ask me a question about how I wanted something to look, I would make him give me a few minutes on Pinterest (or pinutes if you want to get punny) before I could give him an educated answer. When… Continue reading Our Modern Farmhouse Exterior [on Paper]
Heyyyyyy everybody. Can we just pretend that I didn't disappear from the blogosphere for 3+ months, and get right to it? If you can't let me off that easy and are wanting a bit of an explanation, here it is.

Our house is finally to the point where it looks like a house you could live in! Our roof, or roofs I should say, were installed a few weeks ago, and our painters have just about wrapped up the exterior work. The only thing left on the exterior painting agenda is to coat all of… Continue reading Exterior updates!
Lots has happened at our Creekside home since my last framing post. Days where there is no one working at our house are few and far between. Trent has scheduling down to an art, hence why our house is coming along so quickly! Our plumbers began a few weeks ago and have completed the rough in, so all of… Continue reading Siding and then some!
In the last post, Trent had just completed pouring concrete in our ICF basement/foundation walls. Since then, lots more concrete happened. I mean LOTS. Like 6 of those swirling trucks full. I am glad to say that Trent handed this job over to Chacho, our concrete guy. From what I hear, he is THE man when… Continue reading Bye bye dirt, hello concrete!
As many of you know, we purchased a lot in our neighborhood to build a custom home on and are in preparation to put our current house on the market this coming April. Yikes! Writing this made me realize that's right around the corner. In an effort to avoid being homeless, our new house is finally underway!… Continue reading Creekside Custom has commenced!
Before you think it yourself, I'll start by saying that we are probably a little crazy. We are finally in a really good place with our ∗once∗ ugly house. It looks great and the to-do list is getting really small. Naturally, you would think that we would embrace the extra free time and smile at the… Continue reading For the love of a lot.
