I’m so glad you are here! The Roosting Place is a blog manifested out of the desire to document and share our journey as we build up our home(stead) on 5-acres inside the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area. When we bought this property in March of 2020, we had no idea the challenges, and the joys, that it would bring as we have tackled the projects that make this place our own. The best is only yet to come, so take a look around!

Here we wear dirt, sweat, and saw dust as accessories. Here, we believe that good things come with time and hard work. Here, we dance in tiny kitchens. Here, we make home.
