It all started at 7 years old when Seth and I were children...

His family moved into the neighborhood I grew up in and Seth was instantly smitten. He told his little brother then and there that he would marry me one day.... Fast forward 15 years and I was finally convinced! We now have 5 children that we homeschool and travel with as often as possible. 

About four years ago Seth quit his day job as a financial advisor to build a different kind of life for our family... literally from the ground up. He started his own custom furniture company in our home garage where he would build by night and together we would style and photograph during the day. 

In just four short years, our dream has grown exponentially. We purchased a 16k square foot old blue welding plant from the 1930's and turned it into a shoppe for woodworking, metal manufacturing, and more. We now ship our custom work all over the world and have turned the front of our building into a venue where we host hundreds of weddings and events each year. 

Between homeschooling our 5 babes and running our own business, we decided to use the extra 3k square feet of attic space in our building to transform into a cozy place we could call home, our very own White Shanty.  

Here you will find a smorgasbord of our family life; our business, our family, our faith, furniture, travel adventures, wedding venue, homeschooling, woodworking, and our newest adventure-  "The Orchard House". 

Cozy up and stay a while! xx
