The Contractor and His Wife

The Contractor and The Contractors Wife.
Spencer and Amanda.

Spencer and Amanda are new to the world of Do-It-Yourself blogging, but not to the idea of doing it yourself! They married and purchased a home 2007 and working side-by-side gutted the entire house and began building a home for their family. From replacing sub-flooring to plumbing and from framing to cabinet doors, together they have done it all. They have quite the tool collection and Spencer has taught Amanda to use almost all of them. Spencer is the contractor side and Amanda is the creative side and together they create projects that work for their home. When they were first married they developed the motto “He makes it work and she makes it look good!” Amanda is a stay at home mom to their three small children. In between playtime, dinner time and naps, Amanda thinks of fun ideas to add to her home and for Spencer to build! When Spencer isn’t working on a honey-do list, he is a busy Contractor working on and building homes for others. Spencer grew up working in a cabinet shop with his father and loves wood-working and cabinetry. His very favorite wood is Cherry, with Walnut as a close second and firmly believes painting wood is a sin. Amanda doesn’t share the same sentiment which makes for an interesting dynamic! They are best friends, partners in crime, eternal companions, loving parents, dance partners, builders, creators and believers!

Hey there! We are Spencer and Amanda, a DIY husband and Wife team, sharing projects we build and create together for our home. Since buying our home in 2007 we have had the saying that Spencer builds it and makes it work and Amanda makes it look good. We hope you will stick around because we always have projects in the works!
