I love that my home is a reflection of myself as well as my business. We loved that it had good bones; the possibilities it held were endless. I had an (almost) blank canvas where I could dig my heels in and do the work myself. The new opportunity stirred something in me. The new house pushed me to start working my business full-time. I loved the feeling of turning a house into a home, and I wanted to help others do the same.

I love the flow of neutral tranquility. So many are so afraid of the color white, but white does something to my soul. I love mixing the antique touches with the new. We're most proud of accomplishing all the hard work we put into the home to make it ours. Almost every room in the house has been redone. If I can't warm up something visually, it's my mission to use my abilities to recreate it visually, while staying on a budget—like painting my countertops, painting my laminate flooring, pulling carpet off my steps and using linoleum flooring for the backing and wood for the steps.

We moved into this house in 2015 with visions of a future home/yard remodel. We fell in love with this beautiful neighborhood with its established trees, nice neighbors, and “small town” feel. We love that people in this neighborhood stop to talk, wave as they drive by, and make us feel immediately like we are a val-ued part of what makes the neighborhood great. This 3 acre lot, along with the
location of the house, is what drew us to this particular spot. We feel like we have the privacy of country living while being only minutes from our children’s school and other conveniences that only an urban city can offer. So, in short, we feel we have the best of both worlds! The backyard/pool remodel was completed in the fall of 2015 soon after we moved in. The main/larger house remodel and addition was started in the fall of 2018 and was completed by the summer of 2019 by G-Lee Homes. We wanted our house to have a rustic/modern farm-house feel so that our guests would feel immediately welcomed and right at home. Our favorite parts of the house are the main open area with windows on both sides of the room, the patio and the backyard. We love that we have given this old house a facelift and made it feel like our forever home.

This gorgeous contemporary home built in 1982 is located in the Westside district of Omaha which is known for large lots and an abundance of trees. The 8,500 square foot home, completely updated in 2016 by Bob Torson Architects and SL Jensen Construction, has an open floor plan, four bedrooms, six bath-rooms, five fireplaces. The house, located on a one acre lot, has walls of windows facing the expansive deck featuring tiered retaining walls, an outdoor kitchen and paved patios. Rounding out the backyard is beautiful landscaping surrounding the pool and pool house. An addition, put on in 2021, was furnished with the help of LK Designs. This added space gave the opportunity for a gaming room with built-in desks and a huge family room perfect for entertaining with a pool table, oversized TV, and kitchenette. This remarkable home is certain to delight as it offers many unique architectural and design ideas for visitors to the 2021 Christmas Caravan Tour of Homes!
