construction2style home along the Mississippi River

We are finally building our Outdoor Staircase!! Our 2nd home was love at first sight for us when we first went to view the beautiful property along the Mississippi River last fall. We were immediately sold with this gorgeous view. Our property goes right down to the Mississippi River but it is not easily accessible.

Herringbone Tile

Our herringbone tile flooring, one of my favorite projects to show off! Ok, who am I kidding, I think I say that about everything Jamie does for me. I am one proud wifey!

When we first purchased our home we knew we wanted to make concrete countertops. At first we were even contemplating putting them into the kitchen. But then we decided being we had never made them before we better start out with a smaller project, so we opted for our Master Bathroom. I have been hearing the rave on these for awhile and Jamie was up for the challenge. We did some research on how to make these but Jamie decided… Read more »

Call me crazy but I knew if we had a deadline to make we would have the house in order by then…and we did! There are so many different types of installation for hardwood floors and endless grains, styles, and colors. It is also hard to decide on the perfect floor without sacrificing a lot of cost. Hardwood floors add a… Read more »
