We’re heading up to Kohler, Wisconsin this weekend for our housemoon. What is a housemoon? you ask. It’s the last hurrah before becoming homeowners. The last worry-free getaway we will ever take–no cares about flooding or burglars or the house burning down in our absence, just a chance to enjoy and be present with our family.
Newlyweds get their honeymoons and “babymoons” are all the rage with parents-to-be, so why shouldn’t homeowners-to-be celebrate?
Kohler is the perfect place for a housemoon as visitors can relax and scope out the latest and greatest ideas for kitchen and bath renovations. If the name sounds familiar it’s because, yes, it’s that Kohler, the one whose name you know from your own abode. Faucets, tubs, toilets…they make it all.
We will be guests of the Kohler PR team at the American Club Resort, where the younger members of our family will enjoy Kohler Kidz Package goodies and the older ones will revel and relax in the Kohler Waters Spa.
Hubs and I visited Kohler years ago taking part in the free factory tour. I’m a factory tour geek and witnessing the production of large cast-iron bathtubs did not disappoint (molten iron!). This time, however, in fitting with our renovation mojo (and kids who are too young for the tour), we’ll be spending time at the Design Center soaking up all the planing, design and product information we can.
After the stress of the contract negotiations and house inspection (I’m not kidding when I say we’ll never head out of town again without worrying about flooding), I’m looking forward to a relaxing and inspiring weekend. And I’m crossing my fingers for a smooth closing just around the corner.
Stay tuned. We’ll soon be sharing some American Club goodness with our readers in the form of a giveaway. I’ll be writing a review of the resort over at The Vacation Gals, and will use this space to share what we learn about kitchen and bath trends.
