We're Annie and Greg Witkamp (aka the Wits). We salvage, refurbish and design furniture and remodel homes. Right now, we're remodeling our second 1949 home near Seattle after following our dreams in late 2014 to move to the Pacific Northwest. It took many many years of hardwork in the Midwest, but we made it!
After college, we moved from our home state of Indiana to a small college town called Northfield in Minnesota, spent a few years going stircrazy in apartments, then found our first home. We put a lot of our time into remodeling and finished the house over the next 2 or so years. We loved it so much that we found another fixer-upper in Washington.
For the furniture side of our lives, we use craigslist, estate/garage sales, and free items found on the curb. Greg and I give them a makeover, or under in some cases. For home improving, we rely on (other than craigslist) outlet and architectural salvage stores, flea markets, and our skills from years of budget living...which involves a lot of using our own two hands to get projects done. It's not much fun or as fulfilling if we're not sweating and getting dirty.
We're all about passion, determination and the challenge of bringing things back to glory.

Henry our Old English Sheepdog and Vivi our Corgi would love for you to follow our journey.
