Ernstopia is home to my beloved crew of 5 and our loyal dog Ginger…we are the Ernst family and we love to work hard and play hard! My name is Alyssa and my husband, Dan and I created the Ernstopia blog to chronicle our life after moving to the country. We have spent the past few years remodeling and updating our 1980’s Tudor-style country home. Room by room, we are slowly transforming our outdated house into an inviting and cozy place to raise our family.
We love how well our comfortable little space meets the daily needs of our family and gives us a welcoming place to relax with friends. Because our home is shared with those we love, it has become our little paradise oasis away from the stress of the world, it’s our own practically perfect Ernstopia! Along with renovation inspiration, Ernstopia is the place you will find DIY tutorials, budget saving tips, decorating details, ideas for entertaining, fun crafts, tasty recipes and a little travel mixed in for good measure. We hope you will laugh and learn along with us as we continue to navigate the tricky challenges of creating the home of our dreams on a tight budget.
