Wife, mom, home restorer; I'm Aletha VanderMaas, named for my maternal grandmother. I grew up in West Michigan, ventured to Chicago for college, and settled in Grand Rapids shortly after graduation to find a job in Corporate America.

I married the hardest working, must humble man I know in 2007. Greg and I now live in Grand Haven with our two young sons, Eames & Adler. We purchased a 1959 midcentury home after months of searching for just the right place to settle down for the next 15-30+ years. We bid on three other properties before our bid on this home was accepted.

We ended up in an midcentury modern home because we believe in indoor/outdoor living, an open floor plan, and natural materials being used in the building details. We also loved the idea of finding an existing home in a established community, with great schools for our children. We found a solid house that suits our needs and love the history that comes with it.

My love for the 1950s began in middle school and I still cannot get enough of all the details - from the clothes & music, to the homes & cars.
