Farmhouse Renovation | Basehor, Kansas

I'm sure by now you've heard of Chip and Jo, farmhouses, shiplap and crazy renovations... well so has my wife and she loves them! The history, the land, the white on white and how it's all done in just a few weeks. Let's make a long story short of how our farmhouse renovation began. 

We bought our first home the week we returned from our honeymoon (my wife found that one on a whim after almost buying a foreclosure that was up for auction), we lived in it for less than a year while renovating it and sold it the first day on the market. The FIRST day.. seriously Kansas City you are the best!

We had a six month old baby and figured why not do it all again. Lauren found a bank owned farmhouse that had been vacant for four years, zoned commercial, set up as a real estate office, a floor rotted out, ceiling falling in, no water, no HVAC, no electric and a lot of cracked black pavement. Sounds dreamy, right? I think Lauren knew it was ours before she even walked through it with the realtor. She kept telling me it had good "bones," we could afford it, the land was pretty and best of all it was in my home town of Basehor, KS. 

Here it is in all it's glory! Our 1800's farmhouse that needed someone to believe in it and bring it back to as our neighbors called it "the picturesque white farmhouse... the one you would see on a post card." Stay tuned as we take you through a room by room transformation with our favorite projects and Sherwin Williams colors!
