Deuce Cities Henhouse

Going Digital with Analog Media

At home, on the weekends we spend a decent chunk of the mornings listening to records, sipping coffee, and flipping vinyl. We absolutely love the ritual of it. That's not so easy to do at the cabin where we have run into problems with wiring speakers. Recently the clouds parted, and the vinyl gods pointed us in the direction of Sonos wireless speakers to solve all our listening problems... READ MORE

Progress Report : Cabin Half Bath

Hey guys! Just wanted to pop on in and share a little progress report in the bathroom. I was hoping to be able to share a more finished look sooner, but working on a project remotely means that project come together very slowly. Take a look down below to see what it was looking like a few months ago before I started its facelift. So how do you pump a bit of charm and character into a tiny bathroom? In a nut shell, I took elements from the rest of the cabin and put them on blast in the half bath. I wanted it to be a bite sized version of cabin. The exterior of the cab is clad in board & batten, so I thought it would be cool to repeat the look in the bathroom, the wallpaper in buffalo check is a pattern found repeatedly (maybe even too much, but who cares!) throughout the cabin, and the flooring was used in our kitchen and main floor bath...

I wanted to take a physical and mental break. READ MORE

Of course, some of that slowness is by necessity, renovating a small cabin kitchen when you leave 120 miles away isn’t going to happen over night. When I get presented with a design problem like our kitchen cabin, my first instinct is to make the most trying to maximize design on a budget... READ MORE

I had decided in January, that 2018 would be my year of saying "Yes" to everything. Trying new things, meeting new people, all that stuff regular confident people do. As a result, in February, my friend Ashley Goldman from The Gold Hive dared me to go to a local Twin Cities book panel event to introduce myself to Melissa Coleman (aka The Faux Martha). I begrudgingly said, “Sure” because Ashley is my Accountability Partner (™). I was terrified. Big social events where I don’t know anyone are NOT my thing... READ MORE
