Last week the radiant floor heating tubes were installed in the basement.  We’ve grown to love radiant heat, which, simply put, warms the floors in your home, and performs as the heat source.


The tubes are installed over insulation and are then encased in concrete or Gyp-Crete.  The tubes will eventually have warm water pumping through them, which will heat the concrete and create cozy floors.  I’ve always suffered from incredibly cold hands and feet so this type of heat is a real treat for me.

Once the basement floors are poured, we’ll move on to the framing this week.  We’re looking forward to seeing it take shape!


In 2002, I was dreaming of creating a fun and happy little event to sell my vintage and handmade goods. In 2002, I held my first event in my neighbor's barn along with a handful of friends. The sale became wildly popular and began attracting visitors from across the country and recognition in national magazines. Today The Farm Chicks Vintage & Handmade Fair fills the Spokane County Fairgrounds and features hundreds of creatively and carefully curated spaces packed with vintage and handmade goods. Many describe it as a bucket list event, magical, inspirational, and the best event of its kind in the USA. I describe it as the best weekend of the year!
