2014 White Rock Home Tour – Rolling Rock Lane

Wouldn’t you know it – another house brought me to my proverbial knees on a tour. What I loved about the Rolling Rock House (everything), was that the general footprint is very similar to our own home. My imagination has only taken me so far, but the RR House took it to the edge and...

Modern Home Tour Austin, TX – Daugherty Residence

A persistent problem with me and home tours is that occasionally I will stumble into a home that completely blindsides me. I didn’t see it coming and next thing I know I’m sitting on the curb with a bruised ego and a lot of self-doubt. I’m left wondering What in the ever-loving fuck was that?...

It’s no secret that I would like to eventually move out of Texas. I have strong feelings about the state’s future and would rather live somewhere with water and a strong infrastructure. Texas is just not one of those states that people are ambivalent about. When I first announced my plans to move to Texas,...

Jeremy works a lot. When I say a lot, I mean a lot. We do not get to spend as much quality time together as we would like, but when we do, we try to make it count. If we get a weekend together, you bet we’re going to do something epic, or at least...

Entryway Evolution

The entry, or foyer, is arguably the most important area of a home for first impressions. This is where your house extends a firm handshake. This is your home’s howdoyado?.  That photo you see? That is why we didn’t invite friends into our home for so long. Can you blame us?
