alayna house

This week we chat with Alayna Benefield, the ultimate multi-tasker, about the process of designing and building her family’s home.  A designer, photographer and now sales rep by trade, Alayna’s family bought land outside town and started from scratch, ultimately taking over 3 years from start to finish.  We talk with Alayna about her design priorities, the struggles of doing all the contracting work, and deciding to have a second baby somewhere along the way.  While they were building, their family lived in a 950 sf apartment with a toddler and eventually their second child…so we also chat about getting creative with space, downsizing, and the perks of apartment living.

Plus, Sarah talks about poop and her kids make a surprise cameo!

In this episode we talk about:
