The kids came out after Sunday School, had a pizza picnic, learned how to climb ladders and 'marked their territory' with 'chalk rocks.' The girls have decided on their rooms.....Oaklee picked the far corner -- really makes me question if she has insight into the next 12 years of her life.🤨🤔 #shewillgivemegrayhair 😉 Our niece and nephew, along with Greg came to help later on in the afternoon too!
Deconstruction can have it's own beauty. It's a display of determination and will. This specific job brought with it some serious challenges. You can see that underneath those cedar shake shingles is a layer of tar and gravel. What should have been 1 1/2 days of deconstruction + trips to the dump turned into 5 full days of tearing off TWO roofs. Has anybody ran into this before? My guess is the tar and gravel was used as a cheap alternative until the original home owner could afford the cedar shake. Surprises like this are inevitable, that's where grit and keeping a good attitude need to be used. A good attitude is one of the most important tools of any builder's toolbox. Always keep it safe, dry, and easily accessible, because you'll need it.
A couple days ago our builder sent us our plans to review after all the revisions we have made. Everything looked perfect and made us so excited for our new home! But we ran into one big problem: We originally had our house at 9ft for first floor, and 8ft for the second floor. But we decide to go with 10ft first floor and 9ft second floor. This means we had to add more stairs to our staircase which made the area between the stairs and the wall shrink by 20”! It went from being 64.5” to only 44.5”! UGH! 😫 Our builder is working on a solution now with the architect, hoping we can figure this out soon so we can just get our plans submitted already!🙏🏻
Home building isn’t easy! I’m here to keep it real for you all like so many have before me! I have learned A LOT from all my fellow home builders here on Insta. It’s important to share all the ups and downs of building a home, because it’s real life! I’m sure this is the first of many bumps in the road that we are going to encounter, but I am so thankful we have an amazing builder and designer to help us along the way! Not to mention all the amazing support right here on Insta! It’s a good feeling to you know you’re not alone! 💙

Happy Sunday, friends! I was tagged by two of my favorite IGers, @jettsetfarmhouse and @strangefarmhouse, to join the #gvt💕me (Good Vibe Tribe) and #girlbehindthesquare. And since I haven’t done a formal intro I thought it was the perfect time! So here we go!
🍁I’m Alison to most, but those close to me or have known me since I was little call me Ali. I’ll answer to both, but call me Al and we might have a problem haha!
🍁Me and my hubby are high school sweethearts and are approaching our 10 year wedding anni! He’s my bestie and my biz partner. I’m a pretty open book, but Josh is super private and is not into social media. And I respect and appreciate that about him.
🍁I grew up a vegetarian, so when I joke about being super hippy, I’m only semi joking, it all started when I was 6! I started eating some meat in college after living in Ellensburg (the country) and having a gnarly run-in with a flock of chickens. Long story, but the chickens lost. 🍁I laugh A LOT and am almost always joking. I think everything is funny and probably laugh at all the wrong times, I can’t help it. 🍁My two boys, 6 & 8, are everything to me. As much as my squares show all the crazy fun adventures we have, I’m not going to pretend it’s been easy. My first pregnancy was super easy and text book, until the delivery. I will spare you the details, mainly because it’s a story I don’t easily share, but it was traumatic, ended with the NICU and has been an up hill battle since. But it changed everything about me. It softened my hard exterior, taught me to lean in, and fight hard for my baby. 🍁I wouldn’t be where I’m at without my faith and my tribe. It’s what has gotten me through the tough times that cripple me and the best of times to celebrate with me. •
So there are a few things to get to know me a little more. Thanks for joining me on our journey of raising our fam and building & flipping houses!! 💜

#beforeandafter of the front porch and exterior at #930Taylor, an #OakPark#rehab. We maintained the charm of this classic stucco bungalow during our rehab. A new front door, windows, lighting, some patchwork and paint made a huge difference. We also updated the stairs and flooring. This is such an inviting porch now — a great way to enjoy the neighborhood.
930 N Taylor is one of my active listings. Contact me to set up a showing!
My man and his creation. It’s looking so good. After a few minutes the kids started losing it so we stuck them in the car with a movie and enjoyed our new home. It’s going to be amazing. #happysproutshomestead oh, and there’s a downstairs tour in my stories- also saved in highlights!
