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!
