The Downsizing:

The Downsizing: Follow our adventure as we prepare to send one child to college, the other to kindergarten and attempt to renovate a tiny, circa 1950 farmhouse of just under 1200 s.f. The house has been sitting vacant for several years following a past renovation attempt that went awry by a previous owner. Our goal is to accomodate an active family of 4 (plus Mulligan the Westie) in a much smaller (yet stylish) space which will hopefully free up more of our time and financial resources. In addition to renovating the house and half acre of land, we'll be doing some serious editing of our possessions since we're coming from a home twice the size. The property borders an up and coming development featuring new homes along with a town center, shopping, and schools all set in a rural farm village setting.

A Few Details

Interior Doors- These are 5-panel solid wood doors from Jeld-Wen (Home Depot). I loved them from the beginning but had to push hard to get them into the project.  It was worth it.  When you don't have very many, you can splurge a little.

Interior Door Knobs- White porcelain with satin nickel trim by Emtek from Direct Door Hardware online.

Our bathroom towel rack... zig zag hooks from

Above the toilet storage, with very limited storage, you have to use every space you can find.  My constant challenge is editing!  The goal is to make "functional display."  Not just pretty stuff.  Wire cube storage from CB2.

Trying to pick just the right color lime green for the front door.  Looking for "fresh" but not shocking.
