I am also a newspaper columnist and blogger who homeschools her kiddos (we have 3), we just bought a 35acre farm in TN with a host of chickens and a home that needs a LOT of work. Loved your perspectives on so many levels. Thanks for sharing!

I’ve noticed, too, how few times South Dakota homes appear in the design world; glad I got to share a little bit of our beautiful state with the rest of the world. Thanks for taking the time to leave your kind comments.

We appreciated the advice from the “Not So Big House” books so much. They helped us to focus on making small choices with a major design impact. Best wishes to you as you work toward your forever home.

Carey, I read/love your column in the Journal (I live in Rapid) and have thoroughly enjoyed your home tour! Thank you and way to go!!!

Thu, 29 Aug 2013 19:56:20 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=40024#comment-705376 Your home and the way you speak appeals a lot to me. I’m only planning to build my house, but I’d like it to be somewhere on the seaside. What do you think? Have you ever thought about leaving somewhere near the ocean or big sea? Not in vain is said that “My home is my castle”. Do you agree with this statement?

Spending summers as a child with cousin and grandparents in Rapid City, I have always had a heart for the Black Hills. You’re family traditions are beautiful!

How precious–and how wonderful that your in-laws made it!

The shot of the door on my daughter’s dollhouse is the same color as the one on our house.

We eat breakfast here as often as possible, and it’s the best spot in the house to watch a thunderstorm roll through!

Getting to this point in our lives has definitely been an adventure! We’re glad, nevertheless, for everything that led us to this place. I wish you well as you continue looking for your family’s “sweet spot.”
