Peeks into our everyday life, from yardwork and home maintenance to guitar playing and everything in between.
Every year, we host a Christmas lights show, complete with singing trees, Candy Cane Lane and even hot cocoa nights!
The Albertson Homestead is home to Derek Albertson and Torey Berndt (she’s not an Albertson – yet ). We met on Bumble and have been together three years.
Derek purchased the Homestead in May of 2019 and immediately started on house projects, both inside and out. Major projects include considerable work beautifying the yard, refinishing furniture and building out a work-from-home office and lounge in our basement.
Torey’s specialty includes buying home decor and trying to talk Derek into paying for it. We moved in together March of 2020 and she got right to work decorating the inside of our home, creating a space that represents the two of us perfectly.
We love hosting people and strive to make our home feel like an Airbnb – without the fees. If you’re ever in Kansas City, stop by the Homestead!
Welcome to our Home. We’re glad you’re here.
