Farmhouse Renovation Update and Being Authentic

Pin It
This month marks the second half of 2016. Since there are only six months left in this year, I decided to take a look back at my goals for 2016 and to take another look at my word for the year, "authentic". July also marks the third anniversary of our purchase of  the red brick ranch that is slowly becoming our bespoke farmhouse.  In honor of those things, I thought that I'd share a little "before/during" comparison of some of the initial shots that I took on the day that we officially took possession of the farmhouse and fill you in on what's been going on at our renovation.

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.
