Hi, I’m Sandra.
I have a passion for taking a blah home and making it beautiful.. I’ve been designing and building for over 15 years. I’m in the process of remodeling my fifth home.
I do most everything myself– because I’m a perfectionist and I like to stretch my dollars.
I studied Interior Design in school and for a final project, I had an opportunity to design a room in my own home. For my class project, I designed built-ins for all four walls in that room.
Outside of school, I REALLY wanted to bring my design to life – in real life. We could not afford to hire a custom cabinet maker to build everything. But I am a determined person when it comes to figuring out how to achieve my goals. My younger brother had worked at a custom cabinet making shop. I talked him into spending 3 days with me to help me get started building. He lived in Idaho and I lived in Arizona so it was a one time, one-on-one mentoring session. We borrowed tools from neighbors and friends and build the beginnings of one wall of my design. That was all I needed to take off and I’ve never stopped building.
I grew up on a farm, and learned how to work hard. I was expected do hard things and so hard things have never intimidated me. If I want something done, I figure out how to get it done. If I don’t know how to do something, I gather information until I feel confident tackling it.
I learn and get better at what I do –with every new project.
My husband, Wes, is not too involved in our home projects. That is my thing. He is always happy to help me when I need extra muscles or a third arm. He tolerates the messes I make in our home because the outcome is always worth it. But he prefers being involved in the process as little as possible.
And that’s me Yo! 😀
