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. After 5 renovations (and moves) in as many years, we had finally found our forever home. While this old beauty was in good shape when we moved in (by our standards), we’ve done a few small renovations and are decorating it slowly. psst: sources are below
