My name is Alison Allen. I started Deuce Cities Henhouse in 2009 – a blog about fixing up and restoring my 110-year-old Minneapolis home and updating our tired and out, dated Wisoconsin cabin.
Our home and cabin are a constant work in progress and I love pushing myself to learn new skills as I go! I went to art school for photography and was obsessed the entire time with interior spaces and all things hands-on.
I’m passionate about empowering women to take on projects that they might have normally not had the confidence to do, incorporating modern design and aesthetic into my home, thoughtful design solutions, and landscaping. I’ve done it all, from easy do-it-yourself home improvement projects to full on renovations and remodels.
