When we purchased our 1781 Vermont farmhouse in 2015, it was in need of much love. Back in the 70s, our home was saved from imminent destruction by a couple who loving brought it back to livable. The remodel salvaged vintage doors, a slate roof, and original wide pine floors. Now, much of the remodel needs repair. In the words of our home inspector, “There’s nothing majorly wrong with the house, but let’s just say there are a lot of medium projects.” Follow along as we lovingly restore our Vermont country home.

Take a tour of our vintage, 1781 farmhouse on the day we closed on it. This dream home of ours is in need of quite the restoration but we are up to the DIY challenge and already breaking out the tools.

Craft Room

Ah…my favorite room in our home and where I spend the most time. Can you blame me?! Take a before tour of the craft room and browse all the projects we’ve tackled in this space to-date.

The nursery, across the hall from the craft room, is a mirror of the space. We finished the small, moody nursery for our first baby girl in 2017 and have since updated it for our second. The room has been going strong for 6+ years and I still adore it.
