Terms & Conditions


Relative Renovations is a DIY, home renovation and lifestyle blog written and edited by both Rochelle Balkwell and Ashley Crites (referred to as Rocky and Ashley herein). We are two avid ”Do It Yourself” (DIY)ers who enjoy a range of projects, from a simple craft or cooking a meal down to a complete home renovation. However, Rocky and Ashley are not professionals and suggest that all readers use their due diligence when deciding to embark on a DIY project or any project listed on this site. We are not responsible for any possible injury or harm sustained by anyone while attempting to complete one of our projects, nor are we responsible for the final outcome of any project. As with any tutorial, we expect our readers to exercise appropriate and reasonable safety precautions while performing any and all projects mentioned on our blog.


Rocky and Ashley have taken all of the original pictures for this website, therefore they reserve the right to edit, remove or change any of them with prior notice.

All sourced photos are believed to be readily available on public domain (published according to the U.S. Copyright Fair Use Act, title 17, U.S. Code).

We created Relative Renovations with the hope of sharing our passion for design with a larger community. Comments and contrary opinions regarding what we share is welcome on our website.
