Farmhouse...El Fin!




Welcome to the Gaddy Farm

Well boys and girls, we are done painting the house! What a wonderful experience to see the transformation of this beloved farmhouse. Every day got better...we couldn't help ourselves from walking around the house pointing out and talking about our favorite part. We have so many favorites..so the conversations can get lengthy!

We enjoyed working with Paul and Renee and their team Ken and Cory. They do amazing work and every second of it was a good time!

We knew this day would come and it is here! Farmer is beside himself with happiness and I am so glad he was part of the whole experience.

We sure saw a lot of neighbors too...I think half of Bluff Dale stopped by to quench their curiosity.

Just in case you are curious about our color selection we chose Sherwin Williams Creamy for the trim, Butternut for the accent color (windows), and Artichoke for the siding. We were kind of excited about the whole vegetable theme since I am a huge butternut fan (butternut soup!) and my dad always has an artichoke around when we come over for dinner. I believe the house will bring good luck to the garden and the farm in general. Creamy=cows... maybe one day I will get my Jersey :)

Who cares about my rambling...I am sure you want to see some pictures!

Taaa Daaaa!!!

The Old Worn Out House


This house has always been loved but it needed a little bit more attention. Over 100 years old, it is clear why it started to slouch and sigh with years of rain, wind, and sun. Not many people believed it could shine again..but with anyone or anything..it can. It has always been loved and that is the reason why this home had the chance. Otherwise it would have died.

Here is the farmhouse's progress in four years...Now that it has had a little bit of a nip and tuck here and there...As Farmer says...she is now ready for the makeup to complete the transformation.





































Next Monday or Tuesday I will show you what work has been done!! It is really lookin' good! Sorry for the suspense but we are enjoying each stage of the transformation!
