I’ve always known we’d somehow get here. Call it faith, call it hard-core inner gps-system or plain stubbornness, but still, I always just knew, and I’m sure you can relate to that gut-feeling too.
Building a home for myself and my family in a way that is environmentally kind have been one of the biggest dreams of my life. Combining that with my passion for beauty when it comes to color, material, detail and texture, that’s what The Wildlyh Home is all about.
It’s a party of home-gorgeousness and earth-friendliness
I have a hard time grasping the fact that we’ll actually LIVE in this house (it kind of feel like it’s going to be a side ’project’ forever) but I’m so excited to finally be sharing the documentation of The Wildlyh Home with you.
So, backing up a bit..
Fabian, my husband and I began plotting this home years ago. In fact, the oldest sketch that I’ve found is from 2011. While the sketches have changed, the core vision has stayed the same, which is fun to see.
Going through the details of how we got to where we are now would take forever because honestly this process really have been so long. Finding and finally getting to buy this land, the insane amount of paperwork (local county-stuff, don’t even get me started), bank meetings, all the blue-print back and forth and emotional rollercoasters all play a part in this story.
We quickly learned to simply trust the process and let it take the time it needed. That way, we could focus on staying strong and positive because we did not and do not have room for worry or stress. The house will be done when it’s done. And right now we’re getting really f-ing close (EEEK!).
Up until now it’s been all paperwork, meetings, a gazillion decisions and countless late nights. However, as I’m writing this there’s actually no doubt about the fact that there will be a house up on that hill. There is a road, a well and the foundation is there. Yup, it’s really real.
I’m psyched that you’re here and I’d love for you to hang out with us on this crazy journey!
