We have been renovating our home inside and out for nine years now. All DIY here. We are turning the place into a bnb hostel style, if that makes any sense. We have completed the small pool house, heated pool, spa, outdoor shower, outdoor kitchen, bunk room, dance room with ballet bar, craft room. Eventual; gardens and various patios for sitting in the winter sun.

My husband is from England and I from Arizona. He is educated, I am not. He is a retired actor, I am retired truck driver. We live in the desert, both well traveled and becoming minimalist's. We live in a sent free home; no artificial personal care scents, scented laundry or toxic cleaning products like bleach are used. Essential oils and other non toxic products are used in their replacement for our health and the environment.
