We bought a house – and we’re so excited!! We mentioned a little about our new home in the last episode, but here we tell more of the story: how and why we’re buying a nearly hundred year old farmhouse out in the country – that’s going to need a lot of work. We take a little walk down memory lane, talking about why we sold their converted ranch-to-cottage, why it took us 15 months to find this property, and what our plans are. Plus some wonderful, classic holiday films we’ve added to their must-watch list. And more!

Road to the Farmhouse Fixer
We sold our house in August of 2016 and moved in October after it closed. Here are some places you can catch up on this home:
And here’s the podcast where we talked about our house-hunting process: Episode 6: House Hunting, Underwater Lot & Salad Dressing Secrets
Finding Our New Home
Here it is – the farmhouse fixer we bought!! We have LOTS of work to do on it, but we immediately saw the potential – and that pretty view.
The house sits on three acres, with 1+ acres being a grove of oak trees on a hill (the firs you see behind the house are on another property). There is also a manufactured home on the property that we will be living in while we work on some of the major updates like the foundation and master bedroom bump-out.
This is Really Cool!
