Studio - BEFORE & AFTER

If you've been itching to see some photos of our new studio space, I'll give you a little scratch in the form of some photos!

I still want Ryan to do some real nice photos of the space, but for now you have to put up with my poor iphone photo taking skills :)

Here is the BEFORE:
I really did LOVE this home, just the way it was. In fact, it's always been my dream home! Close friends of ours lived here before us, and did such charming things to this house. Walking inside feels like being hugged by a warm cozy blanket. 

Ha, but I did NOT love this garage! It was, well.... you can see for yourself!

And THE AFTER:

The exterior is James Hardey white board and batten and cedar singles. The gooseneck light above the garage door and front door, really helps add a farmhouse feel.

And just for fun, here are some shots of the studio interior and sleeping loft:

This drill board shelf may not be in the studio (its in the kitchen), but I just HAD to share! My dad built this for us and made all my drill board dreams come true. Isn't it DREAMY?! I don't know what I would do without a Dad who can build anything and everything for you

We are so so happy with our new space! It's so bright and cozy. SUCH a great creative space!

A house to a home

It's been about a week since we moved into this tiny yellow house of ours.

It is less than 600 sq ft of beauty and loveliness. It is just enough space for Ryan, me and Ruby and we are truly content and THANKFUL for what we've been blessed with. 

I feel more at home here than I ever did in the old house, and I think it has something to do with the tinyness here. I have learnt now, that we will fill whatever size space we live in with STUFF, not always necessary or even useful stuff. We got rid of SO much of that stuff before we started the 4 month transition of living in a camper and it felt SO good. I am content in this house because it has everything I need, it feels good, and healthy to be living with less. Less stuff, less financial stress, less space, LESS. 

Journey with me as we continue to make this house, our home.
