A short while ago I shared that a dream of ours had come true. We are the proud owners of a little farmhouse in Sonoma County, that we affectionately call The Farmhaus.
I thought it was about time to take you on a little tour of our little slice of heaven. The house is 1200+ sq ft, 2 bedroom 1 bathroom on 1.5 acres of land. It’s not tiny, but it’s not big. 1.5 acres may not seem like a lot to some, but for Hubby and I who have grown up in cities, 1.5 acres is ENORMOUS and we’re not entirely sure how we are going to make the best use of the land.
Here are some before pictures. As you can see it’s kinda charming, but kinda not. The best thing about it is all the beautiful mature trees on the property. I’ve been told we have cypress, redwoods, chestnut, walnut, oak, willow and a few fruit trees.
The inside isn’t nearly as charming as the outside. I have big plans to remedy that, but need to be very careful with the budget. It is a farmhouse afterall.
The project we’ve decided to tackle first is transforming the rather large, dysfunctional bathroom into two smaller, but more functional bathrooms. I drew up the plans and pulled the permits and we’ve done quite a bit of demo.
You can check out the demo we did on that bathroom wall. I’ll be posting updates, but if you want more insights into the day to day progress of the project as we demo and rebuild, follow along on Instagram. It’s going to be fun transforming this little gem.
