Our beginnings

This post serves as a re-introduction (or just a plain old introduction) for those who may want to catch up or get to know us a bit. We are the Lavender's. A simple, Midwest couple in our late 20's. Newly weds with no children and no pets. We enjoy picking out Redboxes, trying new restaurants, and dry walling together.

The Lavender's Longshot blog was created about 6 month's ago after the purchase of our first ever home. Now, when most people think of their very first home, white picket fences usually come to mind. We decided to scratch the white picket fence and go for something a tad more adventurous. We found our little home on a foreclosed website in September, purchased in January, and then affectionately named it Longshot.

Once we demolished out the inside of Longshot, we started talking game plan. The idea of developing our unattached garage into a small apartment didnt come forth until April.  Our thought was to turn this space into a small studio apartment to live in for a few years while we work on redoing the house. We named the space, Bunker, and got right to work.

We should be finishing up our loft apartment in the next few weeks. Of course there will always be things on our To Do list, but we are just so excited to get on our property!
