Farm House is a NOT for us house, darn it!
Well I had already started dreaming about the possiblilies of moving into a 106 year old farm house on 32 acres, could it be a bed and breakfast, could we have our childrens wedding receptions there, could we host movie night with family and friends, showing the movie on the side of the barn, would we host family Sunday dinners??? The answer to those questions was a big fat NO! That's right all my dreams were crushed today when we actually met the agent and got to tour the home. The house was in horrible shape, they had updated everything, and not in a good way, and had left NONE of the charm and personality that this old home surely had. They even had gotten rid of the front door, thats right, just sided and drywalled right over it!!! What were "they" thinking??
We will keep looking, we wont give up! I have a love affair with old barns and we will find a house with lots of charm and possibilities on a bunch of land, it just wasnt meant to be today!
Here are a couple barns that i thought were pretty, what do you think? Do they do anything for you? Or am I alone in my love affair, lol??
HAve a great week! Sue
