~the artful homestead tour~

I just recently found Hollie on Instagram under the name @artfulhomestead.
Her home has a great story.
{via home bunch}

“We own the HGTV Dream Home 2012 and no we didn’t win it! The winner opted to take the money and we bought it. I call it the home that HGTV started because right after we moved in I went to work on the addition. 
Why, you may ask? Because I wanted a home where my 5 children and their families could come to bond and be together as a family.  It is located right outside of Park City in a little town called Midway Village.  Our town is so small we don’t even have a stop light, but that’s what makes it special. 
I immediately got started by designing the addition, looking for a contractor and finding products. The family kitchen was built with a 20’ table and 20’ island.  I wanted all 31 of us to be able to sit and eat together.  The table accommodates 22 and the island 10.  We also needed to sleep everyone so 3 more guest suites and two bunk rooms were added to the plans.  The other room I wanted was a studio for designing and quilting.  I wanted it to be attached to the home but not accessible from the home so I added it to the other side of the garage and designed it like a ‘pied a terre’ in Paris.  It has a kitchenette, 4 piece bathroom and the sofa has a pull out bed.  
When the building started it wasn’t long before I realized I needed to be on the job site daily. I became the contractor, designer and site manager.  Luckily I had the main house to stay in and I would go home to Southern California on the weekends where my husband was still working.  The addition was finished in June of 2014 and it has become our forever home.
A little bit about me… I always lived in big cities. I grew up in Philadelphia.  My husband is Canadian and we have lived in Chicago, Denver, Calgary, and Southern California.  We raised 5 children and have 19 grandchildren.  My husband retired in the fall of 2015 and we live here full time although I think I have at least one more remodel in me because we would like to have a 2nd home back In California to escape the cold of Utah. I always need to be learning new things and look for opportunities to be creative so I’m sure there is much in the horizon to still explore and become.”
A portion of the exterior that I find so dreamy:

Would you like to take a look at the inside decorated for the season?
You are in for a treat!

dear,
sir/mam
I read your blog, its really awesome,
Container homes are becoming a popular alternative for home builders wanting something different. They are cheap, easy to build and have many eco-friendly benefits. For many excited architects and builders shipping containers are providing a new form of architecture, where containers can be used as building blocks and structural elements for houses, offices and even cities.
