We also started renovations on the old 100+ year old farmhouse. We removed the “modern” paneling and layers of older pasteboard from most of the farmhouse walls to reveal the original tongue and groove planks underneath.

The farmhouse renovations are nearing completion, at last! It was a much bigger project than we originally imagined renovating the old house, due to quirks in original construction and the need for completely new electrical wiring, plumbing, and HVAC. Although we did much of the demolition last summer, we quickly recognized the need for professional help, and getting tradespeople out to the farm was a challenge at times. But it’s getting close to habitability, and it looks beautiful, inside and out.
