Our Farm House

The garage looks like an old gambrel style barn, and that’s exactly how we planned it. Siding went on last week and it looks so cool. The wood is 100 year old planks that we installed in board and batten style. They’ll get grayed and aged to look even more worn in the coming weeks. […]

Now it really feels like walls and a HOUSE. Insulation went in this week and it’s so weird how all the sound in the house is deadened. We did it right and this house is going to be tight! We did blow-in style on the exterior walls along with spray foam. Then we did standard […]

Flooring was the easy part. I’m a mom. I have a boy. I have two dogs and I’m going to be living on 10 acres. Can you say DIRT and GRIME? So, I went with luxury vinyl plank flooring. These days, it’s so high quality and looks like hte real thing. We have 100 year […]

Tile & Floors, Oh My!

It’s really starting to look like a home now. The windows and have been installed and the roof is going on. All of sudden, you can see what it will be like, and the views from inside are picture perfect and framed for beauty. I went with black windows. I know it’s a bit trendy […]

Roof Is On! Windows In!

Who would have thought picking faucets would be such a drama inducing flood of emotions? LOL. It is! Every one is so pretty and sparkly, it’s enough to make a girl want to rinse her eyes out. How does one choose? It was daunting. But here’s a few pictures of we selected. The house plumbing […]

Anyone who knows me understands I am obsessed with photography AND books. My dad used to take me to Borders Books (remember them?) when I was a kid and I would wander the aisles for hours. Books have a magic to them that digital will never meet. The smell of them; the feel of them; […]

The second floor is on! It’s not complete yet, but we can now climb the ladder to get up to the second floor deck. And you know that that means? The VIEWS!! WOW! We had no idea they would be this good when we bought the property. Plus, it makes the lower level feel more […]

Oh it’s so slow. Weather really put the brakes on things for a while. While I was at WPPI, 3 FEET of snow fell in Bend. It happened right as the guys needed to install the trusses on the garage. The trusses are those roof beams. And it’s super dangerous to do when it’s icy. […]

The ONE thing I have really hoped for this entire process was a La Canche French range. I love to cook. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and cooking on a high quality range is my dream. Good gear makes your hobby fun and exciting.  Today, hubby said yes to my stove. He […]

I went to Portland this weekend to find my bath tub. We need it now because the plumbing lines are about to be installed into the foundation and Rob needs dimensions of the tub I plan on picking. I’m a huge bath person, so this tub is important. Who knew shopping for a bath tub […]

So here it is! The final house on paper. We got permits and it’s full speed ahead! The house will sit up on a rock outcropping, giving it some height. It’ll be almost directly in the middle of our lot. This will allow us to capture the views.  The color renderings really give you a […]

So, we can’t really build the new house until we sell the old. The money has to come from somewhere, right? So today, we said good bye to our sweet house on the butte. It’s the house where Rob and I officially married in the backyard, and where Dean was born. So many memories here, […]
