House Tour

~Hope you enjoy the tour~

One of our first  projects was turning three small rooms (living, dining, family) into one large great room. This created a space that was 100% usable and functional which was so important for us.

Our old living room became our dinning room and we opened up the bottom of the  staircase and turned it into a small wine cellar.


I guess since I am showing you the front of the home I should show you the entrance.

The Kitchen renovation was one of our biggest accomplishments.  We went from builder grade to custom made with lots of paint, elbow grease and trim.

With three boys we were quickly running our of space.  We converted a small storage room into a Craft/mud/play room which has come in very handy.


We recently completed adding wood floors to our Master Bedroom, after 12 years I don’t want to know what was lurking below the carpet, yuck.

Back in July of 2011 a candle burned our Guest Bathroom down, we were very fortunate that was the only loss, everyone was safe and we were able to rebuild.

The beginning of 2012 I tackled the Loft by repainting the desk and bookshelves and making it more of a hangout for the boys.

We have lots of family that stays with us on a regular basis so it was important to have our Guest room as comfortable as possible for them.

Two of our boys share a room and we are in the process of updating our oldest room.

We had lots of fun transforming the boys bathroom into a beachy escape for them.


Living in San Diego we are blessed to have wonderful weather so we have created a space where we can relax and entertain in our back yard.


The last few months we have been working hard at updating our dated bathroom, we are almost finished, stay tuned!

I think that completes the tour, thank you so much for stopping in.
