Welcome to Day House

Hey, thanks for stopping by to check out the very first Day House blog post! We are Joy and Tell Day, and we want to help you create the home of your dreams.

We’ll use this space to discuss:

For this first post, we want to share with you how Day House got started.

From the chaos of 2020, Day House is born

It’s early January 2021—the time of year for reflecting and goal setting. Looking back on 2020 is tough; it was a whirlwind year for everyone. But, as the old adage states, “Every challenge is an opportunity.”

At the start of 2020, we found ourselves working without passion. Perhaps it was the turbulence of the year that forced us to change that. If the pandemic reinforced anything, it’s that life is unpredictable, and way too short. Time is a non-renewable resource, so you better spend it doing things you love.

In June 2020, just a few months into the pandemic—while times were still very uncertain, Tell turned down a stable machining job to pursue our dream of creating a home design and renovation company. With no clients and no clue how to run a business, we got started. We can thank 2020 for being the catalyst.

This decision may seem crazy, but to us, it makes so much sense. Here’s why:

  • First, and most importantly, we are following our hearts over a paycheck so that we can do work we truly enjoy.

  • Tell has a background in various trades: electrical, machining, mechanical, and automotive. He is an all-around handy guy, and just the thought of spending most of his time working with tools lights him up.

  • Joy has a background in design, architecture, and structural engineering. She cannot walk into a room without designing it in her head. She also loves helping people visualize their ideas by bringing them to life in a 3D model.

  • We are risk takers. We live on the edge and take the road less traveled (ask us about where we plan to live next). And we are ok with failing, so long as we gave it our best. We are entrepreneurs at heart.

Looking Ahead to 2021...

Day House is off to a rockin’ start! We just set up our website, we’ve got tons of exciting renovation projects coming up (of course we will post before and after shots), and we already have many wonderful clients who found us either through Instagram or word of mouth. We consider ourselves so fortunate to be starting the year booked through February. Guess taking the risk was worth it :)

We decided to start this blog and hope to grow it into a helpful resource for homeowners who want to renovate their home but don’t know where to start. Let us know if there are any topics you’d like us to write about, we’re here for YOU.

Here’s to an amazing 2021. We are so excited to see where the year takes Day House!

Have a home renovation project in mind? Reach out, we’d love to work with you!
