The farmhouse is definitely a lot different than anything we’ve owned before. I really wanted something with character and this house has all the charm. It makes me feel like we have one of those cute homes back East, not typical of Arizona and I love that. We both knew we wanted land and this place offers it. Lastly, location. Close to great schools and close to both sides of our families. Everything else was cosmetic and we knew it had potential. A lot of potential. I thought I’d write a post about all the before’s. That way you can see a glimpse of the farmhouse before the make over. It’s currently in renovation mode, painfully slow but I’m also the most impatient person ever. I’m starting to see progress though and every time I see something new done, I get totally giddy. Here is the before house tour. All pics are unedited so you get the real idea of things. I hope you can imagine what it could be though 🙂
Here’s the front porch. One of the most favorite parts about the house. It makes me so happy to see the kids running and playing while I can sit and relax. What’s even more exciting is that it’s getting cooler, so gimme blankets, some wine and I will be one happy mama.
Great room. I personally love this floor plan. We hardly used our formal sitting | formal dining room in our last house and actually turned the front room into a studio. I love how cozy it already feels and can just feel all the warm gatherings in our future.
One of the bedrooms, the other looks exactly like this but has a connecting door to the bathroom.
The kids will have to share bathrooms which is totally ok and it will also host as our guest bathroom.
I’m so excited to start revealing the fresh look to you guys. Hope you follow us along with our journey. XO
