We’re Brian (right) and Jason (left). We bought our (second) home in Salt Lake City, Utah in 2016. Although it’s not a total “gut job,” it requires some major projects. As we flip our home into our dream home we’ll share our DIY projects, renovations and maybe a few of life’s adventures along the way.

We bought our first home together in 2014. It had been partially flipped, but still needed some love. We were well on our way to making it our own, when a man chased us out of our backyard with a machete. Yes, a man chased us out of backyard with a machete. You can read more about that here. And see some photos from our first house.

The machete man is why we are blogging. We did some great, easy things in our last house, but we didn’t keep track of any of it. Plus, some great things happened while we were living in that home: we got engaged, got our first pup together and got married.  So here we are. Sharing our (mis)adventures in DIY and decor.

A Little More About Us

We dated for about five years before we got married in 2016. Before getting married, we got engaged on the Tower of Terror in Walt Disney World in 2015 (yes, we’re those Disney people). We originally met at a political convention and still stay involved and informed in our community.

Brian graduated from law school and works at a university. Jason has a less impressive graduate degree and works for a national charity by day.

When we’re not busy our house, we love spending time with our dogs Frodo (miniature schnauzer)  and Ellie (goldendoodle). We also enjoy staying active with Crossfit and running, going to the movies and binging on the latest television show and spending time with friends and family.
