“This Olde Farmhouse” Part II

The farmhouse project is well under way! It is amazing that such a small project can turn into such an amazing amount of history.

Here is a snap shot of the job site, though there is so much more to this land. You are never alone when you drive up to the site.

What do I mean? There are days that the construction is quiet, but what is amazing are the deer that run freely through the property.

When I drove up this day there were three deer just playing in the driveway. Two ran off, but I got a picture of one. I am going to start naming them. It is pretty amazing!

Sitting right in front of the half-torn-down, half-being-built-back-up farmhouse is a piece of history. It is nice to be reminded of what was and what is to come.

This is the stack of wood that was removed from the house during demolition. It is all going back in some sort of way. We intend on making the kitchen, laundry room, and bathroom cabinets from the wood. Also the existing hardwoods will go back down.

This is a view looking into the master bedroom. It is hard to make out right now, but soon it will be a cozy little bedroom with a screen porch off the back.

This is a view looking into the bathroom. Soon you will see a full frameless glass shower enclosure, with a decorative cabinet, and amazing tile!

These are the colors we are thinking about for the exterior. We want to go with a light grey tone for the entire house which will play nice with the brick red metal roof. All the old shutters and front door will go the darker grey tone.

A sneak peek inside the house:

Tile from Walker Zanger will help take the house back to its original time. This tile is from the Contessa collection which is a hand-painted tile. It will be accented in the bathroom and in the kitchen.

This is a shot from the local showroom, Byrd Tile, that we specify Walker Zanger tile from. This is a snap shot of the kitchen back splash. It will be accented by a rough natural wood cabinet.

Here is a sneak peak at the marble we are using for the kitchen and the bathroom – Vermont Imperial Marble. Laura, from Rockin’teriors, one of our amazing fabricators, found it for us.
