Farmhouse Entryway and Hall

Facebook Twitter Pinterest

As soon as Brian and I walked into our Farmhouse and walked around the first floor, we knew that we wanted to open the floor-plan as best and as much as we could.  First, there was an entry room a wall and two door openings to the right and left, then there were two hallways and two stair-cases with lots and lots of doors and low ceilings.

Hours after closing on our home, the walls started coming down!  I can remember picking up Rocco at his bus-stop, then Roman at pre-school (all within 5 minutes) and by the time I got back to the house to show the boys, Brian already had the entry wall down.  I was shocked.  I was gone for all but 30 minutes!

After opening walls and knocking down other walls, we accomplished what we set out to do!  When I look at these photos that Roseanne took (just yesterday!), I’m overwhelmed with emotion.  I simply cannot express to you how impressed I am with my Bri.  His hard work and skill just amaze me.  While this project was one of the most challenging experiences we’ve had as husband and wife, I know it paid off.

And now, we get to enjoy our home and make lasting memories in it!

Welcome to our Farmhouse!

The surrounding rooms of the entry-way and two first-floor hallways are the dining room, living room, family room and powder room.  These hallways also lead into the kitchen which is the biggest transformation of the entire project!

If you scroll back to the first couple of photos, you can see a little peek into the kitchen!  I cannot WAIT to show you the transformation!
