Portland, here we come!

So I sort of glossed over this in the first blog post to this site, but we bought a house! In lovely, rainy, Portland to be more exact. We officially closed on it today! We're very excited to start working on it, and have many plans for it. Its a large space with plenty of potential (including the fully working art studio of our dreams!). 

Fairmount House

Fairmount House

Ever since I was a small child, I've always dreamt of some day living in a treehouse in the mountains somewhere… all of which seemed like such a foreign concept considering the actual landscape of where I grew up - super flat and tropical natured South Florida. But our Portland home, herein known as Fairmount, kind of realizes that dream. The house is situated near the top of the mountain range South of downtown. The back of the house has a bunch of trees and lovely views of the city in between the tree clearings. 

We really can't wait to get started soon on all of the renovations and to start documenting the process. Stay tuned!

Hello world!

/me taps mic and clears throat

Hello, and welcome to Xanthicasa! I mainly intend to use this blog to catalog the design process of our new house (more on that to come…), but also to post about random life occurrences and events. Most of the posts will probably be written by me, but occasionally Jon, my husband, will probably make a post every now and then. 

Thanks for stopping by. We're very excited to share more updates soon!
