FARMHOUSE UPDATE: December 1, 2016

FARMHOUSE UPDATE: December 1, 2016

We are wrapping up our final to-do list at the farmhouse! This has been the most predictable year yet, and I am not complaining. That just means we didn’t run into any major hurdles and our hired crews showed up on time! We knew that when we bought this home in January 2016, we would have to commit the entire year to this house in order to make our vision come to life. That is exactly what we have done. I can finally say we are reaching the end of this long tunnel; Hello December!

PROJECTED MOVE IN DATE: December 11, 2016

FINAL TO-DO LIST:

  • Finish laying flooring (carpet will be the very last thing done to avoid unnecessary foot traffic).
  • Carpenters wrap up floor and window trim, hang barn doors/tracks, and build permanent stairs.
  • Carpenter build our front porch and back deck (this project might exceed our move in date).
  • Install countertops (quartz for kitchen, marble for bathrooms, and butcher block that I salvaged in our pantry)!
  • Hang shelving in closets.
  • Paint trim and interior doors.
  • Hang shiplap on fireplace and on one wall in master bathroom.
  • Apply tile for kitchen backsplash (countertop to ceiling: white subway tile).
  • Apply tile for master shower (white subway tile + gray grout).
  • Finish grouting a small part of entryway tile floor.
  • Install appliances.
  • Install all plumbing fixtures.
  • Install rest of electrical fixtures.
  • Make our house a home (aka DECORATE!).
  • Hang vanity mirrors and other misc.
  • Paint the hardwood floors in upstairs bedrooms/hallway.
  • Get rest of railing made by welder and installed for stairway leading upstairs.
  • Get railing made by welder and installed in the office (there’s 4 stairs down into the office from the laundry room).

Most Current Pictures Inside Farmhouse:

Upstairs Bedroom. The original 1900 hardwood floors have been sanded up here. Next step: paint. This bedroom is blessed with a large walk in closet that will be used as a toy room for now until their clothes start overflowing a dresser.

Main Bathroom Vanity. A “white carrara” marble countertop will go on these next week.

Kitchen. This picture looks into the kitchen from the living room area. 3 pedestal legs will get installed around perimeter of island and quartz will get set on top next week. Finished island size: 40×80”.

Kitchen. From this angle, the kitchen will have these cabinets pictured here plus a farmhouse sink, stove, and dishwasher. No upper cabinets will get installed on this wall. Rather we went with 3 floating shelves to the right of the window and a stainless steel hood above stove to the left of the window.

This Farmhouse Renovation Process Through My Eyes…

Favorite part so far: Brainstorming and drawing up the floor plan for this house.

Least favorite part so far: Picking out the flooring for the open area (living, kitchen, and dining area)! I am not an indecisive person. Indecisive people might be secret pet peeves of mine… well I was my own pet peeve on this decision! I spent a solid three weeks in and out of flooring stores and brought home at LEAST 30 different samples before making my decision! Low and behold too, the flooring I decided on was our big splurge. Hence why we now will have carpeted stairs instead of a finished wood stairway 😉 Sometimes it takes a little compromise.

One thing I would do differently: Change the location of main bathroom door to the northeast corner of bathroom closer to stairs VS right off the kitchen/dining area.

Favorite feature so far: The light in the laundry/mud room automatically comes on when you walk in from the garage… So handy! Our electrician’s idea.

. . . . . .

I’m ready to slow down in 2017 and enjoy more time with friends and family! I’m ready to quit putting things to the back burner and spending more quality time with my kids and husband. This season of life with little ones is going by way faster than I ever anticipated. I cannot wait to raise our family in this reconstructed home!!! Cheers to December and bringing the year to a close! 2017, I hope you are filled with good health, spontaneous behavior, a little more relaxation, and lots of smiles.
