Redneckmodern started as an inside joke, then became a blog, then something else.
At the core, it's blog about the renovation of an Eichler-built home in Northern California and a sister site to Norcalmod.com. However, when we purchased the house, it was simply meant as a space to share photos with east-coast, southern relatives — the joke was: it took a move to California to motivate the purchase of a beat-up pickup truck (and not something that was otherwise part of growing up south of the Mason-Dixon line). At the same time, we started Norcalmod as a space to feature our design-build and product work.
While both sites got their start over 10 years ago, the renovation project took over (as they tend to do) — and interest grew in what we were doing grew. The site and house got a bit of attention at spots like Dwell, DWR, ApartmentTherapy, DesignSponge and West Elm's Front+Main.
Since the renovation project has almost) wrapped, there's less going on here, and more going on over at Norcalmod — and now at Cyanovox. There's still stuff to do around the house and there's still stuff to discover if you're tackling your own new renovation (so dig around), but don't be mystified if there aren't weekly updates — that's how it's supposed to go: you are supposed to finish projects, right?
Since the renovation wrapped, more time has been dedicated to your house (not my house) — and the NorCalMod projects... from built-in cabinetry to bespoke storage units (with integrated audio!) began to flourish.
