    ABOUT ME

  • I'm a creative person with a large interest in the rural victorian style of decorating and architecture. I work full time as a pharmacy technician at a local, independent retail pharmacy and spend my free time volunteer teaching for the GED program here in town. I love to cook, garden, and spend time with my wonderful husband.

    Ok now I have an additional question. I was told it's illegal to remove plaster walls without a

    The house I am looking to buy for renovation has evidence of termite damage in the wood behind

    Hello! My name is Brooke and my husband Ryan and I are in the process of purchasing a 1,470 sq
    ft home that was built in 1916. It has had very little remodelling work done since it was built

    Wow that's very helpful. Thank you! We are leaning more towards taking the walls all down to
    the studs, now. It'll be a lot more work and money at first, but well worth the benefits in the
    end. :)

    Thanks. It looks like it runs through the tree from the picture but there is actually quite a
    bit of space between the two. The tree also belongs to the neighbors to the right so I don't
    know how that...

    My husband and I are in the process of purchasing a home built in 1916. I have been trying to
    research and decide what is the best option for us to take, but I'm finding a pretty even list
    of pros and...

    The house has been inspected and now we are negotiating a contract! I'm so excited! If the
    contracting goes well, you can definitely see me around here a lot in the future. :)

    My husband and I are looking for our first non rental home and have always wanted to remodel a
    historic home in our small, southern Indiana town. We have found one that we believe is perfect
    for us bu...
