Our family's journey to live the life we feel God is calling us to live as followers of Christ. August 2016 we sold our home and left our lives in Missouri. We bought an old farmhouse and 10 acres in WI. Our dream is to have a small sheep farm in the future, but in the meantime we are remodeling our 100 year old farmhouse and raising our boys.

Dining Room Progress
Dining Room Renovation
When we first purchased our home I don't believe it crossed either of our minds that the Dining Room would be renovated. We assumed we would replaced the laminate flooring and paint the walls, but that was about it. After we were in and realized that the walls were textured paneling and that the texture chipped off in chunks in random places we decided just to go for it.
Look a new wall paper pattern that we hadn't seen in the living room! I think this light green with pink roses is number 5 or 6, I lost count.
Plaster removal was a total family project, no one escaped that nightmare.
The plaster is gone... Nate and I contemplate taking out part of the wall between the kitchen and dining room. We debated this one. Do we want it open, do we like the kitchen separate from the rest of the house...
We took the wall out!
Nate conquered THE WALL!
Drywall goes up.
Somewhere at the point above exhaustion took over, we didn't care much about documenting progress, we just wanted it done! So we don't have any pictures between drywall mud and walls finished..
Nate did a wonderful job installing our new floors. They are absolutely gorgeous. Everyone who has entered our home has commented on them. I was slightly nervous about going with LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile Planks). Such a modern material in an older home just didn't seem right, but they are beautiful and we love them!
Looking from kitchen through dining room into living room
I love the dining room it looks great! Unfortunately as of today this isn't how it looks anymore... The dining room table is crammed into the kitchen and all of the fixtures and supplies for our brand new upstairs bathroom are spread all over! Yes, we are getting a bathroom upstairs!!! Woohoo!
Pretty sure this sums up how we felt when the walls and floors were done!
