What we ended up with is a quaint 2,014 square foot, old fashioned farmhouse with contemporary flairs. The Daily Oklahoman, our local newspaper, called it "a not-so-big masterpiece". I don't know that it is a masterpiece - we just call it home.
Let's take a look inside at some of the features that make our house our home.
Our farmhouse is completely open downstairs except for the master.
Sealed, not stained, concrete floors are throughout this space.
We have a "family" dining room. Breakfast, lunch & dinner are served here. There's no room for formal in this farmhouse.
An old fashioned wood burning stove is centered in the living area.
The floating staircase is anything but old fashioned and supported by pine glue-lam beams.

A pine cabinet gets a updated look paired with stainless shelves for dishes.
Around the corner is the mudroom. It has a hand sink, a toilet room, and stacked washer and dryer.
All of the interior doors (except the pantry) are 7 foot sliding barn doors. With leather handles, they make quite a farm statement. We love them!
But before we peek in the master bath, here is our master bedroom. Simply for sleep with a comfy quilt.
We have no cabinets in our bathrooms. Instead we chose furniture pieces and an open vanity.
There is also a cast iron clawfoot tub in black
and classic black and white tile shower with 5 shower heads. (It's excessive, I know, but it's wonderful!)
Upstairs, the boy's rule. They have a bedroom that they share and a loft for studying.
They have a bath with a commercial double sink that keeps them from getting water everywhere.
I love that.
Across the breezeway next to the garage, the boys have a "kid cave" to play pool and video games. Every house with three boys needs a loud room like this.
That's it. A little red farmhouse big on character.
