Hi, I’m Jenna Ruhe.

I live in the Northwest corner of the natural state…the place where we call the hogs in the fall and ski away the summer on Beaver Lake. I was born here, and though I’ve tried out a few other states since then, Arkansas is where I want to be!

Since 2006, I have been married to Brandon, a big guy with a big heart, and a contagious zest for life. We have a sweet little girl, Vail and a crazy boxer, Moose. My cup overflows.

I have always loved anything house-related, especially home improvement. From an early age, I watched my parents fix up the houses we lived in. Transformation is an incredible thing. This has definitely translated into my life as an adult. I am a licensed realtor with Crye-Leike and co-owner of Simple Spaces with my mom, Laurie. I also love to buy houses that are in rough shape and transform them into comfortable homes for a new family!

I believe that home improvement = life improvement. Our homes are the single most important physical space in our lives. It’s the place where we reconnect, recharge, and relax.

Thanks for finding me. I hope you enjoy the transformations, DIY projects, and insight that you’ll find here. JENNA
