It all started when one of her children was born, and she knew she wanted to get the perfect house for her family.
So, she went to a local thrift store to pick out a sofa and a couch.
She spent two weeks designing the home, which she said is perfect for her four-year-old daughter, Ella, who is learning to crawl.
She even hired a furniture designer to help design furniture for the house.
But the home didn’t fit Ella.
“We’ve had three children, and it’s a big house, and I was very worried about it being too big for Ella,” she said.
But she was told that her son, Max, would be so thrilled by the sofa and couch, that he would love them both.
“When we started to see them grow, I just thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to have to build this one,'” she said, adding that she knew it would be a home of “quality.”
“The best furniture can be bought for $200,” she explained.
“But if you can make something for a lot less than that, you’re on a good track.”
After three weeks of work, the home was complete, and Ella was ecstatic.
“It was a beautiful, luxurious, well-made home, and that’s exactly what she wants.”
She also learned that the couch, which was not a big deal to her son because he’s very picky about his food, was actually the most expensive piece of furniture in the house, with an extra $1,800 to pay for.
“She loved it so much, I knew that I had to make it,” she laughed.
Now, Max spends time at the family’s home on weekends, and his daughter, Zoey, works on the farm, and their three other kids, Zoe, 8, Ellana, 8 and Max, 8 also play outside.
“My daughter, as well as my husband, were very happy with the way the house turned out,” she added.
“I’m just very happy that I did it and that I’m happy with my family.”
Now, she wants to share her experience with other parents, so they can learn from her.
“The more we hear from people, the more they understand what it takes to make a home that’s right for you and your family,” she told ABC News.
“And then they can have that conversation with their children and their family.”
“What are you going to do to make your home fit the needs of your family?”
“I think the biggest thing is to be mindful of the things you don’t like, and take those things out of your life and work on your other priorities.
You can’t always be on top of what you can control, and so it’s important to look at your life in a different way.”
