Our Farmhouse

The Grit and Polish - Farmhouse 1 7-14-16

We found our 1912 Farmhouse in the summer of 2016 and immediately quit our jobs in Seattle, packed up our kids, and moved our lives to Ellensburg, Washington, the town where Garrett and I grew up.  It was an easy decision.  After 5 renovations (and moves) in as many years, we had finally found our forever home.

This page will be updated as we lovingly renovate our Farmhouse.

The Nursery

This space was designed for our second son, Brooks, when we originally moved into the Farmhouse.  Once we were expecting our third child, we moved Brooks into Wilder’s bedroom and transformed this space into a feminine, summery, Farmhouse nursery for baby girl.

 

When Brooks’ used this room, it looked like this:
