Names: Jackie, Joe Ages: 4-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son Location: Washington, DC Since buying their Mount Pleasant house a year and a half ago, Jackie and Joe have completed many major projects and renovations themselves. With two young children, they spend a lot of time at home and want the house to be minimal yet cozy and warm. The kids currently share a room filled with light, space, and lots of toys... Favorite Element: the light and air flow. The house was built before air conditioning was invented so air flow works well. Biggest Challenge: time constraints. I was pregnant when we renovated and moved in. What Friends Say: How do you have two kids with so little stuff? Proudest DIY: All of the renovations done by Joe. Biggest Indulgence: We don't have one, though we have a long lists of indulgences that we want! Best advice: We've learned to go with things, live in the moment, and enjoy life. Dream source: An addition the back with a screened-in porch. Resources: we repurposed a lot of stuff in the house in a new, different, and functional way. The bookshelf is from a DC store that closed a while ago (Sante Fe Style). The bed is Ikea and the crib is from Great Beginnings in Germantown, Maryland. The dresser was Joe's as a kid. Thanks, Jackie & Joe! (Images: Rachael Grad)
