If you’ve been following our journey for awhile, you’ll know I (Kelli) purchased our childhood home several years ago. Our dad and uncles built this house that we were born in. But since we’re number six and seven of nine children (yes, 9, that is not a typo), our family outgrew this little farmhouse so our parents built a bigger one next door. In the 8 years that my little family has lived here, we’ve remodeled several room and completed a ton of amazing projects. Let’s take a tour of the long way our popular front porch has come, shall we? Don’t forget to scroll all the way down for the big giveaway!

Ahh, our lovely brown home. My mom actually asked my advice when picking a paint color for the rental. (When they moved out, it became a rental property for about 30 years before we bought it.) I definitely, absolutely told her NOT to go with this color. Clearly she ignored me.

After a couple of years and saving up some cash, we were able to paint the whole house a fun shade of blue! I actually color matched it to an old bench my husband found on the side of the road. I still remember him sending me a picture of it shoved into his squad car from work, he knew I would love it. The concrete was screaming for a makeover too so we painted it white then added thick gray stripes. We’re on a county island, no one cares what we do out here so why not?

The door went from its original stain color to white, then yellow, then coral, then navy, then red and now light pink!

We’re getting ready to install dutch doors and I can’t decide on the final color: it’ll either be mustard yellow above or pastel pink below. Which would you choose?

We love the house color, whew! One thing checked off our list. But do you see all this land? We’re blessed to have an acre and a quarter to raise our children on. Lots of family time in the yard whether it’s the fun t-swing our dad built, the trampoline or lacrosse, this grass gets lots of love! Which means it gets lots of work. Do you know how much work it is to keep up an acre of land? A LOT. We need strong tools that can handle the job.
