Welcome

Welcome to our old farmhouse. Over the past year I have learned so much history of this house and the people who lived here. Ninety six years of love, loss, hopes and dreams. Preservation continues and there is always a repair to be done. We are trying to be purest in our preservation as much as we possibly can. I hope you follow along and each week I will try to give you a little history of the house as well as the first owners of the house. I've been lucky enough to find a journal from a Granddaughter who talks about the house as well as her Grandparents. So come follow along and learn about this old house as well as the occupants, old and new.

Making A Bathroom Work

 
 
This old place is finally feeling like home. For the past year I have moved furniture from room to room and probably will continue to do. Why does it take so long after a move to feel settled in? When we left our house in WV I felt, I had just gotten things placed and settled felt and that everything had its place. Then onto the rental and now here. A little hard to go from this.....
 

To this and make things work.
 

 
Now onto my post. I have been working in the guest bath a little, trying of course to squeeze a little more furniture in there that I'm not sure where else it might fit. A little history of this bath, it was added from half of the back porch. This is a picture taken before we moved in . You can see the bathroom on the right. Before the bathroom was put in there were two doors going into the house the one on the left that you see going into the kitchen ( back portion of the center hall at that time) and one on the right that would have gone straight into the bedroom. There were sinks in each of the bedrooms as well as doors leading from one room to another.
 
 
A view into the bath from the guest room. It works really well for anyone visiting because they have their privacy when needing to use the bath. This is very unusual feature of a house of this time frame, but I think the previous owners did a beautiful job of incorporating it into the house and making feel as though it's always been here.
 
 
The walls have a lime wash on them, which I love! I know allot of you don't like the brass and gold fixtures, but I do and I think they fit well with the rest of the brass and copper found in the house.
 

 
The window you see from the porch.
 


 
And one of the oldest bathtubs in town. This baby was moved here on the back of a rollback!
 








Notice the great molding they added.
 

 
You can see the shower on the right and I have an antique wardrobe for storage of towels and toiletries.



 
So enough history for today.
Thanks for visiting.
