Eight years ago when we started thinking about moving, buying land and building our home.
I wanted a old farmhouse, but Papa John wanted new.
I think he is wishing he bought the old farmhouse now.
Anyway seven years ago we bought our land ,planted trees ,put in many crossings and a well.
Five years ago we built our home.
My goal since we have moved in was to make this home look old. ( I still would like to take chains to the floor)
It has a very open floor plan and makes it cold.
I want a more warmer cozier feel.
So we are buying old barn wood and my carpenter Papa John is going to build me barn doors for this giant opening.
They will go on a track and slide back and forth just like barn doors.
My daughter and family also live in the downstairs of our home.
(The only thing we share is the front door)
So it will also give us all a bit more privacy.
We found this awesome company "The Barnyard Boys".
They tear down old barns and salvage all the materials.
Well lets just say I was in wood heaven Saturday.
Papa John and I could have stayed for hours dreaming of ways and things we could use this beautiful old wood.
Let me also say we have a few other projects in our heads too.
The above wood is three we are choosing from.
I think I have made up my mind between the brown,
grey and white.
Whats your favorite?
Oh you should have seen the beautiful old wood
they have for floors and so much more.
I am wood dreaming.
So hopefully I will have beautiful old/new doors to share
with you soon.
