Update: Here are the links to all the rennovations we’ve done, so far…
We just closed on this adorable 1940’s farmhouse! It was a foreclosure, so it needs quite a bit of work, but we’re having a ton of fun with the renovations. Our family has been so blessed, not only by this house that we can make into just what we want, but also by the land it is on!
On the left is the chicken coop and barn, in the middle is our five-year-old cutie pie and on the right is the well house. We have an acre for animals and another 1/3 acre with the house and plenty of room for all the gardening we can manage!
We have the original wood floors through part of the downstairs and all of the upstairs. They need some TLC, but we love them. The dog-urine stained, smelly, ugly carpet in the living room we didn’t love, so we donned respirators and ripped it out over the weekend. My hubby and I will be doing most of the work ourselves, with some help from my wonderful parents. We’ll be spending the next several weeks renovating while we’re still renting the house we’re in, then we’ll be moving towards the end of August and will be continuing to work on the house… pretty much forever, I’m guessing. 😉
So, please forgive me if I don’t answer your questions and comments right away or if I seem to fall off the face of the Facebook world over the next couple of months. I’m still here and I’ll be posting about our adventures as often as possible. I’m hoping to do some renovation tutorials, too, but some posts might just be fun or goofy pics, like these!
