After growing up in an Army family that moved frequently, Tina Bliese is happy to have put down roots in Roswell with her husband, Mark Bliese.
“By the time I was 15 we had moved 15 times,” said Tina. “So it’s nice to sort of be grounded now, now that we’ve done the house the way we want it.”
The couple purchased their home in 2010 after moving to the area from Dallas, Texas, where they’d lived for less than five years. Being in their Roswell home for nearly a decade has allowed them to really settle in and add homey touches that make it feel permanent.
“It’s really the first house I’ve ever felt like I’ve owned,” said Tina.
In 2011 they worked with Masterpiece Pools to put in a pool, and in 2018 they worked with CSC Contracting Inc to renovate. They put their personal touch on their home by remodeling four of their home’s bathrooms, replacing dated hardwoods and carpets and refreshing the kitchen with a new backsplash.
“If we’re staying in this house for the next 10 years then we’re going to make it a house that we’re really going to enjoy,” said Mark.
