The Lichte's New Farmhouse.... Week 17


I am a couple of days behind... I usually like to blog on Sunday afternoons - but that didn't happen this week. The second floor is all framed up and now they are working on the roof.

Take a look at Week 17...

 
 
Below is the floor plan for our upstairs. We do have a vaulted area in the foyer right when you walk in the door and in the hallway - in order to get a complete open staircase we also has to vault our hallway. It's something that I was hesitant about at first but now love it so much. 
 

This is the first front bedroom. I love how there is a little window build out section.




"Budget permitting"  I would love to add a couple of little book cases and a window seat, kind of like the picture below. Wouldn't it just make the sweetest little girls room. (Someday)


This is the back bedroom...



And... straight North from the back bedroom window you can see my in law's house...



Here is the playroom. In the original plan it was much smaller, I am so glad that we made it bigger. Without any kids it's really hard to visualize how we will use this space and what we will need. I am a HUGE fan of built in's but that pesky budget doesn't allow for it everywhere.



I don't have a photo because it was just too hard to tell what it was, but we have a Jack and Jill style Bathroom. If you will look on the floor plan each room has their own sink area, and there are little pocket doors that go into a shared bath tub and toilet area.

Windows will be in within a week or so and our front door too. I am really anxious to get this house out from the weather. My farmer and I need to pick out our roof. What I always wanted to do was black shingles on the main part of the house and black tin on the porch roofs (front and back) and the little roof area by our garage windows.

 Something similar to this... Ahh look at how beautiful



Oh hello beautiful farmhouse house.... You see how there is just tin on the porch - it's just such a timeless look and reminds me of something so old fashioned.




I don't think that this look can happen with our particular plan- Our porch roof flows into the rest of the roof on one side of the house. SO...No tin roof on this farmhouse... Our siding will be white and our shutters will be black, so I am sure that we will end up doing a charcoal roof. Hopefully keeping it simple and classic.
 
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone....
