Farmhouse Renovation Progress Photos

Pin It

I can't believe that it has been such a long time since I've posted here....Yikes! To be honest, I wasn't sure that there was anything to show you but I've had more than a few of you send me messages asking how things are progressing over at the farmhouse so I thought I'd share a few photos. The renovation at the farmhouse is moving forward slowly....
                                                                                                                                       but surely.

Rather than rushing through this process, I've decided to allow both myself  and the artisans who are helping me with the renovation to take the time that they need to create the details that will make our home special.

Farmhouse Construction Update: Roof and Windows

Pin It
The outside of the farmhouse is finally beginning to look more like what I had envisioned and less like the rundown ranch that I first saw almost three years ago.  The new cedar shake shingle roof is complete with the exception of some copper flashing and a small section around the new chimney.

Did I mention how nice it is to go in the house now and not have water dripping from the ceiling when it rains?!
                                                                I never thought that I'd actually utter those words but it is.

Craftsman Style Residential Remodel

Pin It
A few months ago on Facebook, I shared a photo of the green stucco two story home below at the early stages of a renovation and addition. At the time, It didn't look like much and I had just been asked to consult on the project.  Today, I'm sharing the "after" photos of the inside of this craftsman style residential remodel. I got involved in this project in the middle of the reconfiguration when the owner was beginning to make selections for the exterior..
 I really wish that I had some "before" photos but you'll just have to trust me when I say, "you wouldn't recognize the place".

Spring Garden Themed Bridal Shower

Pin It

Hi! It's been awhile. For those of you who don't follow SR on either Instagram or Facebook, I'm sure that it feels like a very long time.  I haven't fallen off of the face of the earth, honest.  I've been finishing up a couple of  projects and it's the end of the quarter at my day job so I've been a little "absent" but I'm back and I've got a lot to show you in the next few days so thanks for hanging in there with me.  I've decided to share the pretty thing first: a spring garden themed bridal shower.

Choosing Plumbing Fixtures for the Farmhouse: Porcelain and Unlacquered Brass Faucets

As I start to share the final selections for the farmhouse, I wanted to take a moment to say,

Thank you!

I truly appreciate all of you hanging in there with me for the last two and a half years while I navigated the difficult parts of getting a project of this size and scope off of the drawing board and into reality.  I know that it hasn't been particularly fun or pretty to look at photos of excavation and framing but now that we're only a few months away from completion, I think that I can safely say that we're finally getting to the good part!

And a special thanks to my sweet friend Kelly from My Soulful Home, who posted the photo above just as I was struggling to finish choosing the plumbing for our master bathroom for finding the perfect faucet...the one with amazing proportion (and enough handle choices to make me happy). It's the one that finally felt right. She's renovating a 100+ year old home. If you don't follow her, you should. We're kindred spirits.
