Introducing The Treehouse Project

The past six months have been a whirlwind. I married the love of my life on April 21st here in Charlotte and we bought our first house and moved in just a few weeks following our honeymoon.

We've dubbed our first fixer upper The Treehouse and it's pretty self explanatory why. This home y'all. It has large, modern, windows, tall ceilings and more space than we really need but will thoroughly enjoy when we are able to host holidays for our families - comfortably.

Architectural Sketch

From the interior to the exterior, this one is a lot of work. Our project list is still growing but we are about to dive head first into our biggest renovation for this one, the kitchen. I'll be posting more in depth plans on each project in the house but for now, here is an overview of all the projects we've mustered up...so far.

We have our work cut out for us. The entire house needs upgrades but that is truly why we fell in love with it. We saw a house that needed love and that we could make our own for our future together.
