In a FIRST for the podcast, we recorded this episode “live” as we walked through the hundred-year-old-farmhouse we’re going to be fixing up. (OK, technically not really live. But with enough background noises to sound live.) Join us as we give a quick tour, starting on the front porch, talking about what needs to be remodeled and what we love and wouldn’t change. Like the views. Plus, food ideas for Sunday’s big game and big news for people looking for a flexible planner to help keep organized.

Farmhouse Fixer Details
Here’s the view from the porch where we started the show. This is one we haven’t shown yet – the hills you can see with their current dusting of snow.
And this is yet another view that wasn’t shown in the before tour of our new farmhouse fixer on the blog – our cute little barn with our “One Acre Woods” behind. Most of the trees are oaks with a few firs thrown in for good measure. (Can’t you just see this painted white and sagey green with “X’s” on the doors and a cute barn light over them?)
This is a much better view than any from the Before Tour of the stairs and the um, interesting, railing choice. We saw a lot of houses in our search and the metal outdoor railing inside is a first!
We’d like to find some salvaged home materials to use where we can, like doors, molding, and floors. And we’ll need to match the original siding, since I know there’ll be a lot of patching to do. I’ve heard about Good Wood in Portland which looks promising, and of course will hit up our local Bring Recycling as well as Habitat for Humanity’s Restore.
If any Willamette Valley locals know of someplace we should try, leave a comment with the name and address (or use the phone number below!).
- Sriracha-Honey Nut Mix
- Make mini hot dog pigs-in-blankets with this easy recipe, cutting the hot dogs in half. Dip them in mustard and/or Addictive Tomato Chutney.
- Quick Pickled Bean (or asparagus) Roll-Ups
- Homemade Hummus (without store-bought Tahini!)
This is Really Cool!
