Blue Farmhouse Tour


The blue farmhouse tour.
Bought it April 30, 2016 for $102,000
Sold July 4, 2017 for $165,000.
Renovations were complete on this property end of November 2016, 
listed on the market December 2016. 
Sat on the market for almost seven months.




I bought the house in April 2016, but didn't start the actually renos until June 1.
We finished end of November.

A truly amazing before and after.

Living Room

We removed the dropped 8ft ceiling, to discover 9ft ceilings with original beams.




It's all in the detail.

Cute rustic barn star.
The slim table I got from a yard sale at the 127 Mile Yard sale that goes from Michigan to Georgia.
The vintage barnboard piece came from my barn at my last farmhouse.




The old barn door came from my previous barn as well.
I was able to rescue it before the barn collapsed.

After we removed all the paneling in this room, we discovered a mystery door.
Not much of a mystery really, it at one time lead to the outside front porch, but over time all entrances were blocked off.
We covered up this door with shiplap.  Looks amazing in this space!

 In the picture below, the ceiling walls are coming down.
You can start to see the original beams and the high ceilings.
What a truly exciting find this was.




Peeking into the kitchen.
I wanted to open up the entrance between the kitchen and living room,
but there was a load bearing wall right above the entrance.
So the entrance stayed the way it was.....the joys of an old farmhouse.
I did remove a door and frame that was attached to this entrance, trying to make it as open as I could.




The kitchen
We removed the paneled ceiling and replaced with drywall.
We replaced most of the drywall in this room with fresh new sheets,
 I did keep a few older ones to see how they would blend in with the new.
Turned out rather well I would say.

In the kitchen, there is a rectangle window and a door leading to the front porch.
I kept this original door, just gave it a bit of fresh white paint.

An arched entrance separated the kitchen from the back entrance.
I squared up this arch.

After




The best part of the kitchen decor, are the vintage mason jars.
Found a bunch of them buried in the backyard barn.
What a cool discovery!




The bathroom

Before




After





The tiles on the wall and glass shower door were removed.
We planked the walls with tongue and groove boards.
Surrounded the tub with ceramic tile.
New toilet.  New flooring.


Now a bright, clean, fresh new space coming from a dark, outdated room.

The master bedroom
Before




After




This room was divided into two section.
Was once a bedroom and nursery.
We took that wall down, added a beam and shiplap to the walls.

It is actually a very large room.




The second floor bedrooms
 The new second floor bedroom of the farmhouse.
  Before the renos this use to be an open space with a row of closets.
Walking up the stairs the space was to the right, opposite was a single bedroom.
I removed the closets and enclosed this space to make another room.

Outside
In the backyard we added a deck.
What was once a rundown square frame for an old carport, we converted it into a brand new deck.

  1. How lovely! It seems to be located in such a beautiful peaceful area. Overlooking fields ... That's my dream. Maybe one day? Hah! Looks like you made a good profit on it too. I'm curious: did you sell it furnished, or was the decor only used for staging and will you use it again for future flips?
