I love living in a big old farmhouse.
My husband, Todd, and I moved into the farmhouse that we currently live in about seven years ago.
I cannot tell you how happy we were to find this place. My grandparents owned a farmhouse that had been in my family for four generations, but unfortunately, it was torn down to build a railroad. I was hoping to get that house, but my dreams were shattered when they tore it down. Todd and I found this house after about two years of looking, and it is very similar to my grandparents old farmhouse. I love living here. It feels like we went back in time about one hundred years. We have done a lot of renovating recently, and it has come a long way. We are trying to keep the appeal of the old house while also adding some modern conveniences. One place that we have not gotten to yet is the bathroom. There is one bathroom downstairs, and it has absolutely no heat running to it. It was redone about thirty-five years ago, but for some reason no one ever ran heat to it. There is almost nothing worse than a bathroom that is not heated. I dread going to the bathroom during the winter months. It is so cold in that room, and sitting on an ice cold toilet is never enjoyable. My husband and I definitely plan to run heat to that bathroom before we do anything else. I have a small space heater in there right now, but it really does not do much at all. I will be using two space heaters if we do not have heat yet this winter.
