The Farmhouse

After living in nine different homes, we were ready to settle on some land and stay a while. Living on a farm has always been a dream of ours, and we were excited when it finally became a reality. We bought the farmhouse in 2012 and spent a year and a half carefully piecing it back together. The oak trees that surround the property are what drew us to the place. The house, however, was too small for our family of 6. It started as a two bedroom house and the attic was unfinished. The only add on was our master bedroom and we reconfigured the rest of the walls within the existing home and worked with what we had. My main priority was to open up the main living, dining, and kitchen area. We also finished out the upstairs and created a nice size family room, a guest bedroom and craft room. It took several months to get all my ideas on paper because there was a lot of reconfiguring to do to make the space work for our family.

No one really knew what year the house was built, but when we started tearing off the vinyl siding on the exterior we found paperwork from 1895. If these oak trees could talk I would love to hear their stories! As we started the demo and the renovation process I wanted to make sure all the character of this amazing old house would not get lost. Since we added on our master bedroom I used the flooring in the attic for my floors and I also incorporated old doors so the space felt like the rest of the house. I had the best time looking for older fixtures and doors to use and we salvaged all the existing trim and molding to preserve the timeless look of this home.

The process took longer than anticipated because we were juggling our business renovations with our personal one. It was a good day when we finally moved in late October of 2013.  I chose whites and soft neutral tones in the farmhouse so that it would be a clam place for the family when life gets full. We are finally in and settled and it is home sweet home for us. We are loving farm life and all the animals that call it their home too. It’s been quite an adventure!

    What a Blessing your show has been for me. Two and 1/2 months ago I was injured in an attempted Bank robbery in East Texas. I am now recuperating from being stabbed 5 times. I am trilled to have a God that blocked the knife from ending my life. While recuperating in Herman Hospital in Houston and home I realized how awesome your show was! Our daughter graduated from Baylor so knowing the Waco area I was so excited. I have watched the show for a while but really have had time through this life changing event.
    Your positive personality and the lite heartedness of both of you is a breath of fresh air for us. Your relationship with each other and with your precious children is so refreshing. Thank you for your heart and for share your visions with others. You both have touched my life through helping me mend during this time. My heart loves to decorate and create areas that express mine and others hearts. I have been Blessed and told my husband that I want to come to Waco and meet you both! God Bless you!!

    In His Name,

    The Kindle shows a small ribbon in the top corner with a percentage completed of that
    book while the Nook shows nothing more than the cover.

    The Nook version’s icon is larger brighter,
    more defined, and has a small nook logo in the top right corner.

    As you progress further into the game, the trains start appearing closer together,
    so you have to time your swipes right to avoid getting hit by the trains.
