Who Are Ross & Ian?

We are Ross and Ian (Ross on the left and Ian on the right) and the boys behind Our 1930’s Fixer Upper.

We have been together since June 2014 and purchased our first house in August 2016. Around the same time, we set up an Instagram account to help document our renovation and allow our friends and family the opportunity to see the progress of the house.

Due to the success of our Instagram account, we decided to set up a blog to help provide more details on our renovation that will hopefully help answer some of the questions we get on a regular basis and allow us to share our experiences that may help those of you following a similar journey!

So to get to know us a little better, and to fill some space in this blog, here are 20 very dull facts about us that will probably send you to sleep. Well, Ian’s will anyway.
