We are a husband & wife fixer-upper team – Ben does the lumber/remodel part of things, and I do the painting and decor. We love working together, and thankfully, most times agree on the style that we’re working toward! :)

However, we do not think that beauty is an end in and of itself. We only desire to share a bit of the Beauty and Creativity of our Creator God!

Edith Schaeffer said it well:
a Christian, above all people, should live artistically, aesthetically, and creatively…
If we have been created in the image of an Artist,
then we should look for expressions of artistry…
There should be a practical result of the realization
that we have been created in the image of the Creator of beauty…”

That is the motto that we attempt to live by as well!

Feel free to look through our home with these links.
