“Our goal is to help foster inspiration, encourage, and teach others to create homes they love to live in. Anyone can have a home that they want to come home to, no matter their budget. It simply takes a little homework, elbow grease, and imagination.”
-Mandy, author of Midwest Southern
Downsizing in order to end a massive work commute, Thomas and Mandy purchased their second fixer upper in the late fall of 2017. Mandy is a full time mom, ETSY shop owner, and self taught interior designer as the family fixes up their home on a real life budget. The family of three make their home in the farthest corner of Northwest Missouri.
