About Us

Little Si

Thanks for checking out our blog and welcome! We are Karen and Lincoln Smith, owners of a 1931 Gingerbready Tudor in Seattle, WA. It is our goal to share our trials and tribulations of owning a fixer along with the fun stuff that occurs in between. This is our first home so we have a lot to learn. We hope that you enjoy following along and hopefully rooting for our homeowner triumphs. Please feel free to provide tips/recommendations to us along the way. We welcome your experience and hope you will share it.

The perspective of the blog will mostly come from me, Karen with some featured posts from Linc. He was the editor of his magazine at Western Washington University so it makes sense that every now and again he steps in!

We met while pursuing the rather rigorous business of becoming Physician Assistants in my home state of Connecticut. A physician a what? No worries, click here to get the deets. Fast forward to today and we are both full timing PAs in beautiful Washington state with a healthy side passion for fixing up this fixer.

Between the two of us we bring very little experience of house fixing to the table, but we are determined and excited to make it work. Riley, Lincoln’s and now our (my) golden retriever will be making appearances here and there. He specializes in napping and looking desperate for treats. Please follow our adventures while we fix this fixer and enjoy!
