Hope everyone had a great weekend! I left the hubs and babes at home for a quick, relaxing getaway with some girl friends and it was just perfect. Eating, talking and laughing. And then, there's nothing like coming home to sweet little kid hugs and kisses.
I've shared with you before about my parents' sweet little cottage. This weekend, we went to hang out there but also, I was excited to check on the status of their farmhouse that's being built. I took a few pictures and wanted to show you those and some inspiration photos for the interior design of the house.
I figured there was no point in showing you the studs on the inside (that will come later) but here is the front exterior.
The back looks out over 3 amazing, huge oak trees and has a deep porch for quiet country nights.
Those are the oaks. We call the land "The Oaks" and these beauties are why. There are tons of others, but these are the stars of the show though.
My mom and I have been pinning inspiration images onto our farmhouse board for A LONG TIME but as you can see, it's getting close to go time. Today, I'll share some exterior inspiration photos with you so that you can see where we're going with things.
Please pin images from their original sources.

We chose black windows and Sherwin Williams' Universal Khaki as the siding color. The metal roof is the color 'slate'. The color combo is similar to the images above.

The porch columns will be something like the last 2 photos with lanterns on either side of the big wooden door that my parents chose. My mom has a great eye for landscaping so I know once the construction part is done, she'll fill in the entire perimeter of the house with awesome plants and make it look incredible.
I'm so happy for them and plan to keep you updated on the decorating process for the inside as we start bringing plans together.
One last ridiculous picture that I hope makes you smile because sometimes you just need to pose in front of a construction trash pond. Nickerbean 1, thank you for teaching me your mermaid ways.
Thanks for reading, friends.
