We invite you to our happy slice of Michigan, nestled among the trees in the heart of Harbor Country.

Our renovated cottage is located 90 minutes from Chicago in the heart of all that Harbor Country has to offer! The bright, open home encourages conversation, gathering, and relaxation. Nature-inspired hues invite you in, while the outdoor spaces entice you with toasty s'mores under the stars. Get cozy, sleep in, and may there be (lots of) pancakes.

Makeovers by Room

A choose-your-own-adventure style deep dive into each room of our homes. Get a closer look at each unique room transformation by selecting the home and your room of choice, then sit back and explore every tutorial within that space.

Built in the late 1800s, what began as a worker’s cottage was turned into a Chicago Two Flat in the 1900s. We’ve renovated and fine-tuned this home for over a decade, and she provides for our family daily.

This was our first big investment property, and we learned countless lessons along the way. After a whirlwind 18-month renovation, we decided to keep her in the family and rent the two-unit house to tenants. Step inside – you won’t believe these before and afters.

Our little cabin in the woods is located in southwest Michigan, a small fixer we restored with thoughtful decision-making and practical space saving solutions, all while designing the home to reflect the nature that surrounds it.

The Red House is the neighboring home to Tree House, and we are humbled and grateful to be the ones to restore her in all her mid-century glory. Purchased in the spring of 2023, this one is still mid-renovation!
