House Hunting Part 6- Suburban Farmhouse

Over the past month or so I have been sharing with you all our journey of house hunting.
House Hunting-Famrhouses, Texas Hill Country- From My Front Porch To Yours

This journey actually began about 3 years ago. We were wanting to find a "make us move" house. We toured many beautiful homes and almost put an offer on one but in the end we could just not bring ourselves to do it.

That was until this past March! Yep, I have been sitting on a secret since March y'all. I can not believe I was able to keep quiet for so long! We wanted to get our home on the market and sold before we announced our plans. We went under contract after just three weeks and we close on July 22. We are truly blessed and so very thankful!

Our new home will not be ready till late September to early October so that means we are scrambling to find an apartment for 3 months.

So what made us finally go thru with the sale of our home?

The thought of building a home that will work for us for the next 10 + years, that was closer to work for Mr. Front Porch and near great schools for Oldest and Littlest.

We were hoping for a home on some land but after we found the "Blue Farmhouse" we knew we had found our next home! The "Blue Farmhouse" was sold but thankfully there was a perfect lot for us to build our own version.

It reminds me a lot of this Southern Living farmhouse that I have loved for so very long. I have had it saved in my dream house file for several years now.

 We kept ourselves from getting attached to our new house or getting excited but now that things have moved along and our current home is spoken for we are starting to get truly excited! 
We are lovingly calling it Our Suburban Farmhouse. We have picked out all of our options and I have already been purchasing some new goodies for it! I am looking forward to sharing our journey of building our suburban farmhouse and making it our home!

    1. Thank you Stacey! David Weekley builds in and around Dallas I believe. This is the second home we are building with them. We built our very first home with them back in 2002.

    1. Thank you Lisa! It has been a whirlwind. Stressful picking out options for what may be our forever home in just two design visits. We did it though and crossing fingers it all pulls together nicely.

  3. How exciting! I remember reading your post about that house and wondering why you didn't have the same model built for you. I look forward to seeing what you will do with your dream home.
