Welcome to Barefoot Material! We’re Andy and Alexa and we’re so excited to share our home renovation inspiration and DIY projects with you.
A little bit on our background. Home renovation is in Andy’s blood with a family full of home builders, custom woodworks and trade specialists. Flipping properties began as a hobby and investment opportunity for Andy after the purchase of his first home in 2018. It’s grown to become a passion for the both of us – a creative outlet to express our love for modern farmhouse style and to make old homes beautiful again.
We purchased our current home (and our first home together!) in April 2020, just as the pandemic was starting to shut down the United States. We were incredibly lucky to close when we did and, in a way, our projects throughout this home have helped provide us with a sense of purpose and drive in a time where many people have felt confined. Over the past 10 months, we’ve renovated many spaces in our home, including our kitchen, our owners suite, and our yard and we’re looking forward to sharing all the details with you.
Our goal for Barefoot Material is to empower homeowners to create their own dream homes and spaces. We want you to feel confident in taking on any home project – big or small – and will provide tips and guidance from our own experiences within our posts. It will never be perfect, or as easy as you probably expected, but we know that there’s nothing more satisfying than finishing a project that is reflective of your unique vision.
We’d love to hear from you! Tell us what home projects you’re working on, what you’d like help with, what you like and what you don’t like (we appreciate constructive criticism), and what you want to see us do next.
See you back here soon!
Andy + Alexa
