Our journey to household awesomeness


Hi there! I’m Karrey.

On Monday, October 27th, 2008, my partner Kevin purchased his childhood home. This blog is devoted to our journey of renovating and decorating that house, which is a 1956 Ranch-style home nestled in one of the loveliest neighborhoods in Iowa City, IA, a cosmopolitan little college town in the middle of one of the flyover states. We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us, and you’re welcome to join us for the ride.

We like midcentury home design, cooking/baking, brewing homemade beer, and riding our vintage scooters around the countryside, so you’ll probably see a little bit of everything on this blog. Welcome!
