About Us


Recently... My Husband Tony has jumped on the OpendoorStudio Bandwagon so we are now in this together!

 We  fill our days with dreams of Door County!

Tony on our property in Bailey's Harbor!

 are some views of MY  DC dream house

 Spring 2012 we worked on our little vintage travel trailer... Currently Tony's dream house...
* a place Tony calls his cabin up north .

 It is currently sitting on our property on the north side of the garage/Barn/implement shed... 
and just within reach of our wireless modem.
He is a Happy Camper there on the weekends!

 ( our little camper on our Bailey's property)
another view... it is a sunspot 12.5 footer ( which INCLUDES the hitch)
a full 10 feet of living space!
( according to the original sales booklet...sleeps 5)

I am an Assistant Manager at a local Resale Shop and Tony is a Mold Maker by trade.
I travel far and wide and have the chance to meet some amazing folks
