About Us

Welcome to Our Blue Ridge House! If you’re here, you may be wondering who we are, and what we’re all about. Let me try to fill you in with the short version.

We are Sarah and Travis, along with our two girls and two dogs.

We were born and raised in Northeast Ohio. Although we loved our 6×6 mile city, it was time for a change.

In 2020, we sold our house, packed up our belongings, and moved to the mountains of North Carolina.

While the move went smooth, finding a permanent place to call home was a whole ‘nother story.

After months of looking for a house, and striking out, we decided to build a house. Nearly 7 months later, we purchased a beautiful lot in great location. I wish this next paragraph would be all about the home we built, but there’s a wrench in the story.

We purchased the lot in October of 2020. As of September 2022, we have yet been able to break ground. You can check out our Instagram highlight reels for updates as to why that has been so challenging.

Our Blue Ridge House was originally created as a platform to share the house building process and costs with y’all. Since then, it’s evolved into so much more.

Now, we love sharing all the things including healthy living, family fun adventures, tips for around the house, and updates about the house build as they come.

As a family, we enjoy hiking, being outdoors, watching live music, exploring, new adventures, finding good restaurants with vegetarian/vegan options, learning more about a holistic lifestyle, and connecting with y’all.

I am a former teacher, now content creator for Little Learning Corner and Our Blue Ridge House. Travis is in construction, and loves everything about wood working. In a sense, we’re both creators, and love what we do.

We are so glad that you’re here, and can’t wait to hear more from you. Join the Blue Ridge House newsletter, so we can stay in touch.

On the blog, you will also find homesteading information from Heather @Second Chance Farm. Her and I connected to combine our content, and offer you all the healthy living and homesteading info.
