My name is Susan DeBow .
My goal is to make you feel encouraged and inspired. Hopefully, you will read something that helps you, makes you think, inspires you or at least makes you smile, in every post.
Design is more than just the way something looks. It is also about how it functions. How your home looks, functions and works for you and your family. How your life functions. Yes, you can design an outfit, a graphic, a building, a kitchen, and other segments of your life.
In the dictionary, the word ‘design’ is a noun (a plan or drawing, an arrangement) and a verb (to do or plan something with a specific purpose or intention in mind.)
- He unveiled his design for the new building.
- A good design can help the reader understand.
- That piece of pottery has a lovely white and gold design.
- I became a cook, by default, and not by design.
- He had designs on the family fortune.
- Set your designs on higher goals.
Our Life –
Since we have been married, we have built or remodeled 7 homes, not including homes we lived in, before marriage or places we rented. So, while we do not pretend to be experts, we do know there is joy and heartache in home ownership, renting, building, remodeling, decor and even landscape.
Here, you will read about our adventures of buying, building and maintaining a home, as well as just plain living in a home. You will see articles on the following:
Landscaping and Gardening
Building a home – why we made certain choices
Surfaces and Materials in Design and Building
Hopefully, you can learn from our mistakes and laugh at our adventures and maybe read something that will help you in your decision-making process.
Again, we are not experts. We are not responsible for what a reader does after reading something on this blog, but we do hope to increase your understanding of the process and learn by our mistakes and accomplishments. They say if your marriage can make it through building a home, it is a good relationship. I guess we are doing something right to make it through so many projects.
Thanks for reading and I hope you will come back, soon, as we will be adding pages and categories as we go along.
