Happy Tuesday everyone, hope this post reaches you at a happy time of your week! We are so excited about everything that’s going on and having this platform to share and document it all makes it even sweeter. The Farmhouse work is staring to go full force and I want to make sure I get this before post in because so much is changing in the next two weeks!
A little backstory, we have had our eyes on this 1920’s farmhouse for so long, feels like over a year but the starts finally aligned and we were able to purchase it, from our (Now) new neighbors! The sweetest couple owned this house and we are so grateful that they live on the same street so our relationship has only just begun! The neighborhood is full of awesome people, families with children and grandparents so we know we will feel right at home!
Like I said, this is a fixer upper and we have so many plans so keeping this simple (today will be tough because my mind is going a million directions) but I’ll start with the basics, the lot and the pictures!
The property inlcudes a 2 bedroom house, a guest house, a small playhouse, and a barn. The barn has been copeltey taken over by Gavin. He tells me don’t even look it it, its his for all his Bronco things! Having his own space will be good for us all, and if I look out my kitchen window I will be able to watch him and Wyatt at work and I’m so excited for that!
As for our timeline, we are going to address the guest unit first and get that all set up to rent out and then get after the house! I am serious when I say the guest unit will be nicer than our house for a while ahah!
Here are the photos of our little farmhouse I’m going to start with the hashtag #burkardfarmhouse so I can keep track!Last night we were down at the house with Gavin’s parents and his dad was helping us trim all the trees because fumigation starts here right away! Once the house is tented I won’t be so terrified of opening windows and uncovering furniture haha! Ill document weekly videos on our Instagram TV, and smaller details in my stories. Basically, if you follow along my Instagram, you’ll be set!
Have the best week!
