Hi, I’m Kathryn. And I like making a home. And cooking. And gardening sometimes. Mostly I like transforming things. I rearrange the furniture here almost constantly, despite the frequent eye-rolling, not again comments of my family. I’ve spent years working around the challenges of our century old home, slowly renovating our small bungalow on a budget, finding ways to make this crazy house, where nothing is built to any sort of code and there are almost no closets, modern and family friendly. I design around narrow living spaces, a complete lack of storage, low ceilings, surprising building structures, a house in which nothing is level or square, active, growing children and general life. I bet you do too. This blog chronicles the before and afters we’ve completed and those we’re still dreaming about, as well as the ins and outs of daily life with two children.
