The Farmhouse Before Tour
You read that right! We bought the farmhouse!! It still feels crazy to actually get to type those words! It’s an 1800s fixer upper farmhouse that checked too many boxes for us to pass up! It needs a lot of love and we’re so excited that we get to be the ones who bring it back to life! The farm also comes with several buildings (1 being a big red barn eeek!) on just a handful of acres, which is perfect for us and the hobby farm we’ve dreamed of for so long!
What to Expect
This article will give you a tour of the inside of the house and the next one we’ll walk you through and discuss some of the renovations we already know we’re going to do. Then we’ll show y’all the property and out buildings! As usual I took way too many photos, but I really wanted you to get a good feel for the house and it’s layout. I also refrained from any kind of editing so you could see exactly what it looked like the day we got those keys!
We also started a YouTube channel (yay!) to give y’all a different way to see what were up to! And let me tell ya we have years and years of renos and projects ahead! Lol! Plus all the fun of farm life! You’ll find our video tour at the end of this article but if you want to get a jump on things you can check out our channel and subscribe HERE!
Welcome to Midcounty Farm!
When you walk through the front door you come into the kitchen. We love the big rooms, tall wooden ceilings, and tons of natural light that pours in through those big windows!
If you were to turn right when you came in the front door you would enter what we’ll be using as the living room. We also fell in love with all the original intact character the home has! All the windows and doorways have beautiful moldings and all the doors have transoms too!
You may notice that the house isn’t completely empty. The previous owners left us some building materials and paint but there’s also a very special piece of furniture they intentionally left behind. If you read one of my previous articles about the farmhouse then you may already know that the people we purchased from are very good old family friends.
Well the old pie cabinet you see below was gifted to them from my dad as a house warming present and it had actually belonged to my great grandparents. I recognized the piece the first time we looked at the house and thought it was amazing that there was already a piece of my family history there. I wasn’t going to ask but they told me it came with the house. A gesture that meant the world to me!
The other room off the kitchen is what we’ll be using as the dining room/sunroom. We have big plans for this space that I can’t wait to share! It was originally a screened in porch or sun kitchen.
Off of the dining room/sunroom is a bedroom. We have some pretty big plans for this room too! Eeek! So excited!
You can enter the bathroom from this room or the little door under the stairs. And I bet you already guessed it but we have some BIG plans for this bathroom too!
If you noticed in the kitchen shots the stairs are right off the kitchen. When you first go up you’ll be in a big open room. We love that all the rooms upstairs have the original beadboard walls and ceilings!
The smaller of the rooms upstairs has the best view of the farm for sure! And they’ve already exposed the chimney!
The other upstairs bedroom is a bit bigger.
Back downstairs off of the dining room/sunroom is a small addition to the house.

And that’s it! That’s the farmhouse before tour! Like I said I know we have a lot of work ahead of us and I’m so so grateful that we get to share this dream with you from the very beginning! Thank you for being here along for the ride!
