Hi! I’m Tandra, (along for the ride) is my husband Eric, and…

about us

These are our “kids with fur”, two spoiled dobermans Sutter and Sierra.

We live in Sacramento California, and this DIY blog is our weekend escape from the office cubicles!

We’ve loved our little houses, but living with two “super-sized” dobermans has posed a designing challenge. Add a tight renovation budget to the mix and you’ll see our “sweat equity” and creativity at work.

Our design rules are simple:

Keep it…

1. Budget friendly

2. Stylish

and above all…

3. Dog Proof!

Some of our little adventures and misadventures have even been featured on…
