Know Me...

Coleen uses her unique skills and construction experience to streamline remodeling through her tip books, online course, plan review, and consulting.

After starting over at the age of 60, I realized how unique and special each one of us are. 


I’m married to my best friend, DK, 43 years and we have two amazing grown children. At the moment we have two horses, three dogs and three cats that are our four legged grand-animals. 


My husband introduced me to the world of residential construction at the young age of 19. As life took some pretty wild and crazy twists and turns, it’s been construction expertise that helped us pick back up and move forward from this unplanned event in our lives.


I went from being a city girl all my life with all the necessities (at least I thought they were vital) to moving to another planet ! ! ! Most people call it the “country.”


We used our knowledge, skills, tools, and resources to start over with our  “fixer upper” home and life.


At the same time I saw how life was paralleling what we were doing to make this “fixer upper” livable, and what I needed to do to get back up again, and be the unique person I am today.


Five years later, yes I am now 65, I published my first book “The Starting Over Toolbox Reinvent Yourself at Any Age.” I am launching a speaking career and in the process of writing my second book and, I am on a federal health plan called, Medicare.


I am looking forward to my dream #GlamCloset being finished in a few months.


Whether you are looking for the Move-In ready, Fixer-Upper, or Dream home the steps are similar blueprint as to how we figure out which architectural plan is right for us to move through life.
