As most of you know, we sold our home and moved about 6 months ago. We just moved a few miles, but we now have a couple of acres. Just enough space to grow a big garden, raise some animals and give the girls room to run and play. The house we bought is a classic ranch and we are slowing adding a little farm house flair.
Construction for the barn started a few weeks ago. This beautiful barn is actually very similar to what ours will look like. Matt put a lot of thought and time in to designing the barn….I can't wait to see the walls go up! I won't bore you with all of the details (widths of batts for the board and batt siding, color of siding, style of barn too, etc.…..but we sure had fun figuring out all of the details)! Our goal is to make the barn look likes it's original to the house (1948).
We have plans to add 'farmhouse flair' next Spring. We will paint the exterior, add corbels, cupolas, shudders, all of the extra touches that give a home personality and character. We are having the chimney re-built and I am struggling with the type of brick to choose. All of the little details that can really make a big difference! In the mean time, we started switching out the exterior lighting.
Here are a few inspiration photos….
Arn't those homes darling?
I am so weird about remodeling my own home. I am always wanting to hurry things up and just be finished, but on the other hand I really enjoy the process! Does anybody else have the problem when it comes to projects around the home?
