Hi my sweet friends! I always wished to have a simple life out in the country, but never actually thought it would come to fruition. We were blessed to come accross this property at the right place and right time, and were able to build our dream home ? Words cannot express my gratitude for being able to live here and raise our kids here. There is just something so tonic about living in the countryside. I’ve had some inquiries about the layout of Birdie Farm, so I thought I’d give y’all a tour of our home!
Welcome to Birdie Farm!
My husbands and my goal was to have an open floor plan that still felt cozy! It’s so nice to be able to see the kiddos playing while cooking in the kitchen, or to be able to chat with visitors in the dining room while cooking…I must cook a lot ? in any case, back to the tour!
The kitchen bar is where the kiddos eat breakfast and do their homework ? We use it a lot more than I was expecting to which is super fun!
The pups are our four legged family members, meet Beau!
My favorite little nook! The coffee bar!
The dining room is right off the kitchen and entry ?
View looking up in the dining room. We really loved the idea of the house being open, and being able to hear the kiddos playing upstairs while chatting in the dining room.
View from the entry up the staircase. And you can see the kitchen too! So far so good with the open floor plan!
Light fixture above the entry, and the bridge to the extra bedroom we added while building when we found out we were having baby #4!
View down the stairs. We used rebar for the staircase spindles, and pipes for the handle pictured on the left (code said there had to be one, and I think it turned out pretty cool!)
We put our kiddos initials in the steps ?
We made it upstairs!
View from above the dining room
Boys bathroom. We installed galvanized metal roofing for the siding and I couldn’t be happier with it! Bonus: super easy to clean!
Laundry room- we won’t be peeking behind the curtains today because it’s a disaster area ?
Bunk room/ Dormitory perfect for sleep overs and company
View peeking around the coffee nook
Screen porch off of the coffee nook directly to the left, and the living room through that open door.
Screen porch off of the master bedroom. Our sanctuary
Outside the screen porches
Little bird playing in the pond ?
My hubby built the pond last year and it’s just been amazing seeing all the wildlife in the mornings and evenings! We live out here in the summertime!
Thank you for stopping by lovies! I hope you enjoyed the tour! xoxoxo lr
