We are just your average family – up at 2am because someone is scared of the dark, forgetting where we are supposed to be at any given time and having a perfect dinner table set… but eating on the ground, in front of the TV or running out the door. Life is crazy and not always perfect. But we embrace it and can always count on renovating spaces to bring us back together. It’s something we all enjoy and can contribute to.
Gabe is the logical, style maven (if he doesn’t like it something is off). Christine is the visionary, risk-taker (she finds opportunity in what most turn away from). Emelia is the renovation critic (she has many opinions and isn’t afraid to share them). Jenson is the family cheerleader (he thinks everything is a great idea and helps mom justify any purchase).
Our family dynamics work. We each have our own ideas and dreams. But at the end of the day when a space is complete we get to break away from the hustle & bustle and enjoy our time together as a family.
We live in Evanston, IL, have a cottage in Holland, MI and farmhouse in Fennville, MI. We will be working on a barn conversion in MI this summer.
