The girls room.... Its never quite "insta-perfect" but still cute. These quilt covers were from my hubbys two sisters growing up and I just love them! Also the wardobe colours the girls could not agree on one colour, so they got to choose their own door each... One a lovely pale violet/grey, the other a pale blush pink... My older one wants to be a designer when she grows up 😂😍
I mean...doesn’t everyone build snowmen in a dress and flip flops? #onlytin #doyouwannabuildasnowman #farmgirl #withstyle #minime
Really enjoying finally having a huge wall of storage in our spare room! Dave knocked up these great built ins with sliding doors with panelling detail... This room is white but the kids got to choose their colour (from the options that I liked 😉) and ill show them next time their room is clean! 😂
Nothing but blue sky’s here. Let the melting begin. #springtime #coloradoblue #readyforsummer

We’ve been away for a week, but now I am back into the reality of unpacking. We have a temporary kitchen that is about 80% installed (temporary because we’ll be putting in plans for an extension and the kitchen will move hopefully 🤞🏼) and I’m jumping the gun and starting to fill cupboards. There’s been a few casualties in the move and I now no longer own a full set of any glasses.. guess I’ll be going for that rustic miss-matched look if we need to entertain any time soon! Cupboards that haven’t been installed are doubling up as in-house tool sheds 🙄 #builderswife #renovation #artdecohome #1930shouse #restoration
Is there really a blizzard coming tomorrow?? #colorado #march #thatsmeansbipolarweather
We all know one of each
Over the weekend the kids spent 48 hours with nana, which meant my kitchen looked like this 🙌 24 hours later, one banana loaf, homemade peanut butter, 800 snacks and dinner chaos means it looks nothing like this now! #itwasnicewhileitlasted Side note: Yes the scaffolding is still up 🙄 #builderswife #nuffsaid
Bedroom progress 🙌🏼 We have been working hard on this room and it’s now fully plastered...RIP hideous floral wallpaper!! So excited that we’ve now got a dressing room & ensuite as part of the extension. Can’t wait to decorate 😬 #selfbuild #buildingourdreamhome #essexhouse #carpentry #dressingroomgoals #ensuite #building #firsthouse #bedroom #blankcanvas #extension #houseofdreams #builderswife #builderslife #essexhomes #interiordesign #bedroominspo #bedroommakeover #dressingroomgoals #bathroomdesign
. Who doesn’t love a before and after 🙋🏻‍♀️ This time it’s the boys bathroom that got a much needed makeover. Thank you @barryholmes_72 once again for putting up with my ever growing Pinterest list. Better take a photo before it’s covered in hair dye and wet towels 😬 . #bathroomdesign #beforeandafter #bathroomdecor #homeinspo #builderswife #bubblebath #grey #exploredreamdiscover #teenagersbathroom #smallspaces #nowindows
. It’s been a busy few weeks at the new house, and an even busier few weeks to come. We’re having to move out of the rental property we had, so the pressure is on! . #buildingourhome #builderswife #creatingmyownfreedom #mumofgirls #girltribe #nonasties #doingwhatilove #myfoodbagnz #bargainboxnz #goodbyebabyweight #babyweightbegone #busymums #multitaskingmummy #livingmybestlife #38withababy #residualincome #forevergrateful #trayroofing
Office Interior Design... love being able to have fun with no restrictions. This is a little insight into what My personal design style is like ❤️#fusionreconstruct #officeinspo #mynewdigs #interiordesignerslife #majorrenovations #builderswife

We love a neutral colour palette and a blend of natural products like timber, wool and stone. All products available at Choices Flooring Echuca. Hope you all have a great long weekend (in vic) 👌🏽
Happy #internationalwomensday . Raising my own “little women” this is very special to me. Let’s face it, life is hard. Raising strong women is even harder. Voices all around us are telling us we are not good enough, strong enough, or even equal. God has a very different opinion. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14 Who is that strong woman in your life? The one that supports you, the one who is honest, the one who tells you the tough words, in love, we at times need to hear?
🖐🖐 Oh hello! It's been a while... I have finally taken my foot off the accelerator and had some time off work. I have worked SO much throughout January and February to save pennies for... more house projects of course!! (and a cheeky holiday💃) I have few DIY ideas of my own in the pipeline too... watch this space 🙈 . . . . . . . . #myhome #myinteriorstyle #myinterior #myhouse #myhousethismonth #cornerofmyhome #pocketofmyhome #weeklyinteriorinspo #iginteriors #robertsradio #hagueblue #naturalstyle #houseplants #jutelovers #1930ssemidetached #1930shouse #renovation #renovationlife #builderswife #buildershouse #openplan #openplanliving #dreamhome #interiorinspo #interior123 #interiors #interior_and_living #interiorstyling

Happy International Women’s Day to all the fabulous ladies working in the construction industry, our clients, our colleagues, our friends. We have witnessed and heard many stories of challenges faced by women in the building industry, but together, and through many wonderful organizations you are chucking on your hard hats and nailing it. CLG had a morning tea to celebrate and chose to donate to @sharethedignityaustralia to #endperiodpoverty . . #womeninbuilding #girlboss #ladytradies #builderswife #IWD2019 #strongertogether #balanceforbetter #buildingbetterqld #nawic #awesomewomeninconstruction #hia_member #businesswomen #IWD19 #womeninconstruction #womeninplumbing #hiamember #masterbuildersqld #womencandoanythingmencando
Crews are busy at both sites this morning! 2nd pic is the crews working on retaining walls at the remodel. We will end up with almost equal amounts of outdoor + indoor living space!

These four babies have been delivered to a very special client this week. I cannot wait to see them in their new home! #hamptonsstyle #brisbanemade #builderswife #sophiesfinds #planterbox #sidehustle #mystyle #hamptons #justaddplants
Why do I bother..?
Sneak peek at a few of the new pieces a certain someone built this weekend while I was gone.
It may just look like a cup of tea, but this was the first cup of tea I’ve had a chance to make myself since having this house. I didn’t actually get to sit down, zone out and savour it, but it was still bloody lovely. Definitely appreciating the small things at the moment! #builderswife #renovation #restoration #1930shouse #takeabreak
Appreciation post for my husband ❤️ swipe across to see our finished home. Dex has built this cottage entirely himself, from foundations to stone work, including electrics, plumbing, heating and decorating. He’s currently building our kitchen! He’s a plumbing and heating engineer by trade but he’s so talented in all other aspects of building a home 🏡 I’m so proud/lucky to have him ❤️ even though I haven’t seen him for about a year - can’t wait to get my husband back! #wifeofabuilder • • • • • • • • • • #buildingahouse #buildingahome #buildersofig #buildersofinsta #buildersofinstagram #homesofig #homesofinsta #southwest #mycottagefarmhouse #mycottage #myshabbycottage #mycottagestyle #stonework #stonemason #stonemasonry #countrylife #builderswife #builderslife #myhome #myhomevibe #cottagelifemagazine #cottagelife
I definitely got a good one!! Husband that is!! I love how his brain works!!! I am so impressed and amazed at what @surfweaz is capable of!! This year the day before Valentine’s Day, this brought home these gorgeous tables tops and told me I could choose my favorite!! Beyond thrilled here!! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I chose the one on the right, the larger of the two for our new coffee table! I think the resin painted on it looks like the branches of s family tree!! We are just waiting for legs to arrive!! Of course this project has inspired all kinds of other changes. That’s how we roll... at least we roll in the same direction most of the time!!! So excited to show what’s next!! 💜☮️ . . . . . . . . #mermaidtears #mermaidtearsjewelry #fashionista #fashionista #healingstones #styleblogger #jewelrydesigner #table #tabledecor #familytree #happywife #artistlife #happywifehappylife #builderswife
6 weeks after settlement WE’VE MOVED IN!!! Gas is on and we have hot water. No oven/cooktop/laundry yet though... all in good time. Loving sleeping in MY bed though. Glad the kids aren’t tall enough to reach the switches 😬 . . #artdecohome #renovation #restoration #builderswife #1930shouse

Swipe ➡️ to see the after picture! Just less than 3 years since we bought our home and we’ve finally got round to sorting out the front of the house. New porch and driveway and finally it looks as good on the outside as it does on the inside. #ourhome #foreverhome #builderswife #slowlygettingthere #countryliving #countrylifestyle #homesweethome #frontgarden

Brass is all the craze right now! We picked this amazing brass faucet from Strom Plumbing by The Sign Of The Crab for our guest bath! One of the best things about it is that it’s made in the USA 🇺🇸!

The life of being a #builderswife when he says "let's just drive by the job site" and thirty minutes later you are still there watching as he tidies up and checks on every trade that has visited (this man runs a tight ship 😆). This beautiful house is coming together nicely, very soon she will be finished and ready for her grand reveal! Happy Sunday home lovers 🌸. #queenslander #brisbanebuilder #brisbanehomes #hamptons #beautifulhomes #sconces #home #newbuild

Good morning! It’s a rainy Saturday morning yet again! Rain makes me lazy I just want to lay around drink my coffee and watch Netflix. But that can’t happen I have way to much to do on this rainy Saturday. It’s time to fill my Yeti up and get this day started.! Thank you @carolinatractor for my Yeti it’s the best! Just a little perk being married to the builder! 😜❤️🚜#carolinatractor #yeti #farm #tractors #farmhousesink #notraedunn #farmhouseliving #farmequipment #countryliving #countrygirl #builderswife #farmhousehappy #simplyliving #sharemysquare #tractorgirl #tractorlife #farms #farmgirl #lovemybathroom #shiplap #shiplapwalls #whiteshiplap #kingstonbrassfaucets #kohler #rockfamily #rockfamilyfarm
Loving the light coming through our kitchen / dining area. Got us dreaming of summer days moved back into our house... BBQs, doors open, music on, glass of vino, garden that doesn’t look like a building site 🙈🤣 #builderslife #builderswife #extension #bifolddoors #kitchendecor #diningroom #summerdreaming #selfbuild #essexhomes #project #housetohome #dreamhome #bringonsummer #kitchenisland #kitchendesign #diningarea

So hot
So we’ve opted for a very chic open look for clothes storage, aka a metal clothes rack. 🤣 Another temporary measure to see us through. We think the current master bedroom will eventually be the guest bedroom when we extend so we trying to work out what wardrobe space is required long term. We’ll have built-in wardrobes designed when we have the full house layout finalised. . . #renovation #builderswife #restoration #1930shouse #artdecohome #interiordesign
