Our Home in Tyler
Our Dream Home in the Piney Woods of East Texas



last updated October 2013


In 2003 We purchased our Dream Home, nestled among 5 acres in the Piney Woods of East Texas.
At that time we began, what is a continuing journey, though major home remodeling. We've enjoyed it through thick and thin and are happy with the results.
We invite you to come inside and view our progress.
Thanks for visiting.

Outdoor Spaces


An unused area on the side of our house was turned into an outdoor sanctuary June 2010


Indoor Spaces

Family Room


I love using frames to highlight found objects, and turn them into wall art.


My husband has a collection of various vintage musical instruments. In a "if you can't beat em join em" move, I use more vintage music related items to decorate around his collection. Vintage organ pipes and autoharps continue with the music theme in this area

Garage Conversion



This was practically built from scratch. It had been the garage, Now it's a great Craftsman style office for Roger to come up with his great ideas.
Roger built everything in here, the walls, the shelves, the framing and trim, and the ceiling detail.
All the trim, and the basic styling of this space is inspired by the Interiors of Frank Lloyd Wright

This is the Ceiling-Wow!!!

Framing October 2003, Sheetrock March 2004, Ceiling Trim August 2004,

Ceiling Trim August 2004,

Roger removed the garage doors, and enclosed it to become his office

The old garage was completely enclosed and trimmed out to look like the rest of the house.
in August 2004 we poured a concrete walkway between the new driveway and the new side entrance.


Detached Garage
