The Farm House
The main home on the farm has been here since the company bought the farm. They did quite a bit of updating (i.e. painting, new cabinets, etc.) the last few months. I was able to pick out the new paint colors so it feels a little like our home in Kennewick. It is a great house and the only thing they will do next year is replace some more of the windows. I didn't take pictures of the bedrooms or family room. The girls each have their own rooms and the boys share. The family room is a good size with two couches, a TV and a computer desk. Maybe I'll get some pictures when we go back next week.
This is a picture that we took when we visited in November. The house was a tan color outside:
Another major project was redoing the master bathroom. There used to be a big jetted tub that was nearly impossible to use because it took a very long time to fill. So, they took the tub out and added a glass block wall to make a large walk in shower. It is wonderful. And all of the cabinets/vanities were replaced in the bathrooms.
Kids bathroom with one vanity outside the bathroom. Perfect for the girls!
The living room area just inside the front door. There is a piano keyboard in there and the kids are excited to start lessons.
The dining room. Another addition to the house is ceiling fans in every room. Such a simple idea that makes a huge difference!
The last major project was installing new cabinets, sink, hood fan, faucette, fridge and dishwasher in the kitchen. The old cabinets were warped & damaged and some would not even close all of the way. The sink was about 3 inches deep and very difficult to wash dishes in.
Here is what all of the old windows look like and will eventually be replaced like all the ones in the bedrooms.
