Welcome to Home To Home DIY!
Some basics about us. We are 2 couples who have been longtime friends. Together we remodel houses, create unique crafts and parties for our kids, seek out delicious (and easy!) meals to make for our families, and basically enjoy living life together. With soon-to-be 5 kids between us, we know how precious time is when doing home projects. We started this blog to help make DIY projects easier to find by putting tons of great ideas (as well as time saving tricks for those who are time crunched) from lots of creative people all in one spot. Of course we feature our own house projects, but we also love seeing what other people are doing in their own homes and with their own families and sharing that with you. Whether you’re looking to be inspired, be featured, or you’re looking for a tutorial to help you with your next project we hope you love this blog as much as we do! Keep in mind if you don’t find it here, ask us! We’ll find it (or figure it out!) for you.
Here’s a bit more personal stuff about us
The “H” Family:
Hi y’all, let us introduce ourselves and we would love to get to know y’all better too. We are the “H Family” and are made up of Jesse, Taylor, Laila, and another baby girl on the way. We currently are living in the heart of Oregon, but have strong southern roots (you may see that reflected in our style, our use of y’all, and our strong devotion to Texas Tech.) We love figuring out ways to decorate and make things on a budget and this has become something that we have found a passion in. We love bargain hunting and looking for little treasures we can fix up and reuse, as well as building our own pieces.
We can’t wait to share our DIY projects, family fun, and the ins and outs of everyday with you.
The “C” Family:
Hi! We are the ‘C’ Family: Ryan, Greta, Kadyn, Kai and Lukah. Our first DIY project together was a “simple” interior paint job in a cute little rental that we were painting the week of our wedding. What started as one room with one color quickly became the entire house in 5 glorious colors. That rental never looked so good! Let’s just say we became hooked. Since then we have completely remodeled our first home purchase together, and then our second home purchase, created our 3 best DIY projects (our 3 charming, loud, wild, crazy, lovable, adorable, spirited boys), said goodbye before we got to say hello to identical twins, and recently purchased our 3rd home that we are anxious to get to work on. We take great satisfaction in seeing the potential in an ugly house and transforming it to a beautiful home that we could otherwise never afford to buy as the finished product.
Some things to note about us are that our hearts are with the ocean despite living in the middle of Oregon, we have an extreme love for coffee, a need for wine (did you see we have 3 boys?), a penchant for finding adventures to take the kids on, and despite Ryan being the one that does most of the big projects, you will hear the word “we” a lot from us because, as you may well know, as a couple living a DIY project, you’re in it together. So, grab a cup of coffee because we can’t wait to share our story with you…past DIY failures and successes, current home remodel projects, and everything in between. Hopefully you’ll find something to inspire you to DIY.
We would love for you to follow our blog on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram! And make sure to leave some comments or send us an email because as we said, we would love to get to know you better too!
