A Tour of the House for Hope

A Tour of the House for Hope

 

I have written 1,315 posts on this blog.

Some of them funny.

Some of them not as funny as I thought they were.

Some of them introspective.

Some of them room befores and afters and furniture makeovers and DIY projects and the occasional post about hay bales and gas station pizza in the country.

A Sneak Peek of the House for Hope

 

The House for Hope is done.

I can’t show you all the rooms until the end of the month, but I got permission to give everyone a little sneak peek.

Buckle up butter cup.

This house is a design roller coaster ride. 🙂Continue reading

Business on the top.

Party underneath.Continue reading
