About Us

Welcome to 12 Oaks!

We are Amanda & Ben, two DIY-addicts renovating our home in the Chicago suburbs.

Everyone thought we were crazy when we purchased this extreme “fixer upper.” But over the past 5 years, we’ve transformed the house and property, nicknamed “12 Oaks” after the number of trees that line the driveway, top to bottom.

Check out our house tour to see all we’ve done so far, and stay tuned for even more updates!
