About Us

Being a homeowner comes with its fair share of challenges and rewards. From dealing with broken appliances to creating the perfect outdoor entertaining space, owning a home can be both frustrating and fulfilling.

As someone who has had plenty of experiences in both good and bad situations, I’ve learned a thing or two about making the most out of my home.

I want to share with you my journey as a homeowner, particularly focusing on my experience in California during the statewide drought and the luxury of living in Texas now.

I’ll be discussing the challenges I faced and how I overcame them, as well as the satisfaction I’ve found in creating the perfect outdoor space.

Living in California during the statewide drought was a challenging time for me as a homeowner.

The grass in my backyard eventually died off, but I was able to regrow it from scratch by using drought-resistant grass and making the most out of the limited water resources that we had available.

It was a lot of hard work, but seeing the green grass and being able to spend time outside once again made it all worth it.

But when I moved to Texas in 2016, I was amazed by the amount of space and resources that I had access to.

Our backyard in Texas is large enough for us to have not only a pool but also a space for outdoor games and entertaining. It’s truly a luxury to have so much space to make memories with my family and friends.

Of course, being a homeowner also means dealing with unexpected challenges. Recently, we had to replace our pergola with new pressure-treated wood as we experienced carpenter bees and a hurricane which managed to finish the old one in under five years.

While it was a hassle to deal with those problems, it was necessary to ensure that our outdoor living space was safe and secure for ourselves and our guests.

Despite the challenges, I’ve found that creating the perfect outdoor space has been one of the most satisfying aspects of being a homeowner.

From having a place to watch football games to just lounging around with a good book, creating a space that is both functional and beautiful has been a journey that I’ve enjoyed immensely.

Being a homeowner has its ups and downs, but for me, it’s been an experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything.

Whether I’m overcoming challenges or enjoying the fruits of my labor, I’m continually reminded of the reasons why I chose to invest in a home.

From the California drought to the luxury of Texas living, my homeowner experience has been fulfilling, rewarding, and full of surprises.
