This Land Is Our Land | Bringing Design Home

This Land is Our Land

Apparently we’ve been keeping a lot of secrets from you guys! Not only are we expecting baby #2, but we are excited to announce that we are moving forward with building our own Modern Farmhouse! With Grandpa’s help we picked the perfect spot on top of 5 acres right next to Cale’s mom’s house. Some might think it’s crazy to build next to family, but we’re excited to live within walking distance and share in all the responsibilities of a caring for a big garden and future pigs, cows, chickens, bees, etc.

Lots of potential!

Since we have been married it’s been a dream of ours to build our own little homestead. We’ve loved every second we’ve had in our current 1910 farm house, but we are looking forward to having a place we can really call our own. After talking to the bank and doing some serious financial planning, we are aiming to break ground in 2016!

Two years seems like a long ways away, but we’ve got some major designing to do!

In the mean time Cale’s working on getting his architectural license and continuing to gain as much experience as possible in the construction industry. We can’t stop sketching and laying out every nook and cranny. Our ideas are still rough, but we look forward to sharing our design process with you along with picking out furniture, finishes, and flooring!

Any tips for building and/or designing your own home?!
