Okay, okay... I’ll spill! I’m excited to share with you that I’m working towards obtaining my Construction Supervisor License in Massachusetts!!!!
I’m in the process of navigating all the material (oh, the stacks of books) and preparing for the test. Thanks to an amazing friend who encouraged me and is taking the CSL course with me, I’m excited to get this license so I can grow and broaden Shea Interiors in the direction I’ve always hoped to. Bottom line, I’ll be able to help more folks in their homes in bigger and better ways having the all knowledge necessary in construction and design.
I’ve always been intrigued by building and construction as I grew up in the industry working alongside my dad, a contractor. My husband and I started our own DIY journey by researching how-to videos on YouTube years ago as well as a Home Depot How-To book in hand when we bought our home over 11 years back. We’ve renovated bathrooms, replaced flooring, installed tile, trim and so much more in our little fixer upper home. I’ve learned so much about construction over the years and am excited to finally make it official with a CSL license.
Thanks for the love and inquiries wanting to know the big news!! Off I go to dive into some more studying. I’ll leave you with this photo evidence that I do in fact know how to operate a tile cutter. Happy weekend, friends!
Welcome to The Blog at Shea Interiors (formerly Gardenia Home Design). A new name in a new year with new goals and tons of hope for the months ahead. It’s been a wild ride, 2020. Thanks for all the lessons.
Moving into the new year slowly and steadily, I’m reminded that 3 years ago I started my little business in mid January 2018 while I was still teaching elementary students. A few years later, I’m proud (and surprised) when I look back at what I’ve accomplished and what I’ve learned along the way.
Personally, I’ve had a rocky 2020 with health issues including several surgeries too. Now that I’m healed and healthy, it really felt like the right time for a business reboot. We all need a fresh start sometimes, right? Changing the name to Shea Interiors to reflect the new “2021 me” felt like the right way to kick off the new year and celebrate 3 years in business. Though I’ve got a new look and new name, my mission remains the same: creating peaceful and fresh interior spaces perfectly reflective of the home-owners.
3 years and many projects later: here’s a peek at some of my first projects in the early days.
