we are so broke
but we bought a house anyway
now comes all the fun.
We are Nate and Emma. Accompanied by our little girl, Callie, and three scruffs, Bridget, Seamus, and Teagan, we are on a quest to live in and design our 1905 Federal home in Central Michigan.
Nate is currently going to school for HVAC/R and spends his days working for an obvious but shall not be named car company.
Emma works as an Office Manager part time and stays home with Callie as much as possible (someone has got to watch Seamus...)
When we first started this blog, it was about redoing our home, which we have named Blue. Buying her was fast paced and crazy, living in her is slow and enjoyable. Although, in our house there is never a dull moment. As with most families in America, the economy has hit us pretty hard, so we are scaling back and enjoying the cheaper things in life which we hope to share with everyone else.
Take a look through our lives and let us know what you think! And PLEASE, contribute, so we don't feel like the only broke people on the planet.

Also, we want to take a minute to state that we are not trained in anything DIY (other than what a couple months of Habitat for Humanity can teach you). We do not know what we're doing and we do make it up as we go more often than not. This blog is not to be used as a solitary reference material. If you are going to attempt any project that we have documented, please do additional research before doing some stupid (I.E: Anything beginning with the words, "I saw this thing that Emma & Nate did....") as we can't be held liable for any shenanigans you get involved in or injuries that result from it.
