Hi there!  I’m Karrie Trowbridge, the voice behind maker of home.  Welcome to my little corner of the internet where I share both my personal and professional creative endeavors that revolve around all things home improvement.

I was born with a creative brain and a maker’s heart.  I’m an interior designer and own a construction company in Bend, Oregon with my family.

I’m married to a great guy and we have 3 amazing sons!  I love the outdoors and have been a tomboy my whole life.  We’ve lived in Bend for 17 years…. In 8 different houses: 2 of which we fully gutted and remodeled, and 2 that were my own personal designs and builds. My husband Patrick is a real estate broker and investor.  We’ve subdivided and developed property, as well as built multiple custom homes and renovated over a dozen houses.  I manage the design and construction aspect of our business. I LOVE what I do!! We are small scale, so that we can focus on doing the best work, while maintaining a healthy, balanced work/family life. 

In my spare time, you can find me in my workshop tinkering with power tools, sewing machines, or refinishing/reupholstering vintage furniture.  

 We try not to take life too seriously! This photo was taken at the end of filming a home renovation pilot episode for HGTV which aired in 2017. We’re excited to announce that we got picked up for a  series ! We hope to begin filming in spring of 2018.  If you live in Central Oregon and would like to work with us and have your home renovation project featured on the show, please click  here  for details.
