We were told the barn was built in the 1880's (I wonder what the original home looked like) and that there is writing inside somewhere that tells the amount of bushels of individual crops harvested by year! Can't wait to find that!
The chicken coop will house the goats, and future horses!
The corn crib is located at the back of the property near the well and power pole so we are looking into converting it into a woodworking shop for me.
That about sums up the exterior "BEFORE" photos of this project. Stay tuned to watch the transformation of each :) So far we have removed some fencing, built some temporary fences, raked MOUNTAINS of acorns and leaves, and mapped out a plan for picket fencing, goat pens, and an old fashioned front porch!
P.S. My next post will show you the INSIDE. So far I have already refinished some wood floors, painted the bathroom, painted the hallway, painted the kitchen cabinets, countertop and vinyl flooring (waiting to see how it holds up before painting the laundry and dining room floors as well), changed out 1970's doorknobs and put back in vintage glass knobs with various back plates, added some curtains in the living room and shelving to closets.
