Green Acres...

"Is the place to be....

Faaarm Livin' is brand-new-to-me-but-I'm-super-excited-to-give-it-a-try-and-there's-a-barn-and-its-super-cute-so-what-am-i-saying-it's-definitely....theeee life for me!"

Can't even tell you how ready I am to get those keys in my hand and start moving stuff in!



Welcome to 285 Jellison Rd.

My new home!

I am so excited because as you know, losing the house was never really something I A).  liked to talk about, or B).  looked forward to.

But now that everyone's gonna be "jellison" of our new farmhouse...I'm over it.  Hah, just kidding....but seriously, prayers have definitely been answered and I am so so so grateful!

Oh boy, where to start...I'll give you a little photo tour...



This is the driveway coming in, and the field where I really want to have a croquet tournament! Complete with picnic and fun attire!









Looking from one outbuilding to another...



Past the treeline in the backyard..



The red barn in the backyard...

Lets head inside now...



The homeowners built on this deck, and a master bedroom to expand the original house.  We're going to use that as our living room, and make the dining room HUGE.



Just a shot of the living room...can't give the WHOLE thing away yet...I need to save that for when we actually move in.. :)



This is the dining room, coming in from the master on the right...  hopefully we can paint the walls (or use removeable wallpaper), maybe put up a chair rail trim or some wainscoating.... and the gold on that stove can come off...and take that window treatment down ;)



Looking into the kitchen...which needs HELP. haha



The bones are amazing, and there's hardwood under them there floors....waiting to be explored....and exposed....for the love of all that is good, I HOPE WE CAN GET RID OF THAT CURRENT LINOLEUM CONGLOMERATION....my farmhouse light will go so perfectly up there in place of that current fixture as well...



So the bathroom really isn't that white...I messed with the colors to change it.  It's really pink.  Like peachy pink.  That needs to go as well haha...its a big bathroom though, and would look great with some tall wainscoating!


If you go back into the dining room and look right, there are stairs going up to what will be our master bedroom....



Our master bedroom and sitting room...possibly someday a nursery?


Oh the possibilities are really endless......hope you had fun taking a sneak peek!  We should be moving things in this weekend and then I'll have more pictures for you!  Thanks for all the awesome words of encouragement!  Love you all!!

Congratulations! I'm so glad I'm a follower because I don't want to miss seeing how you turn this home into your very own. As you said, there's huge potential! It's very quaint and the outbuildings are very cool, too.

P.S. I love your attitude! You are the best!!

Hey Jana,
I am gobsmacked! What an amazing location - I would live in a tent to have views like that. So much land. Gorgeous property. You are going to have so much fun making this place your own. What an amazing opportunity to come out of such a horrible situation. I'm really excited for you both.

Where's Jana? I searched for you. All of Whitefish is looking for you. I found Sweet Peaks the day they had their grand opening.
I'm so excited for you and the farm house. I hope the owners know how lucky they are and will let you take over.
I will keep hunting for you in July!
Enjoy your days!

robinbird said...

i came here via amber at tres birds and when i saw the first images of your new home i felt a lump form in my throat. all my growing up years i told my mother i would live on a farm when i grew up. i have never seen anything quite as close to what was in my imagination as this wonderful place. may your new home be filled with the gift of love, friendship and grace.

That looks like a great place! You seem to have a good foundation to work with and you have so many cute ideas already! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do with the place to make it "yours". I'm hoping for some good "renters" tips ;) Have a great day!

Our farmhouse... sigh.... bless its heart. It is a love affair... but more expensive and needs more diapers than my babies.
