Before & After At The White Shanty
If you would have told me a year and a half ago when we moved into this old blue, windows-all-broken-out, gravel yard, junk-yard looking, 1930's welding plant, that it would soon be a wedding venue, and shortly after that-- MY HOME, I would have laughed myself silly. In fact truth be told, when Seth first mentioned it, I did. We had plans to make furniture here -nothing more... or so I thought.
Now, this old place serves so many purposes as if to resurrect and come back teaching me that all things, with God's blessing, love, and a lot of hard work, can be made whole and beautiful again. We've slowly remodeled the entire space and this past year turned the upstairs of this building (3,000 square feet of unused and untouched attic space) into our loft home.
Here you will find the Before & After pictures of the remodeling we have done to turn this space into what it is today. Unfortunately, our original Before photos were lost when our camera was stolen, but we've made do with the images that we could salvage and hope they still depict how far she's come!
With running our own businesses here and homeschooling our five babes, it made sense for us to take up residence here smack dab in the center of it all. However, this space was never meant to be our forever home. Recently we purchased land a little ways outside of town and will begin construction on our new home, The Orchard House in the next few months and can't wait to share that journey with you!
Our plan is to keep this space to have a comfortable place during the week while we work, and another place to call home at The Orchard House when it is all finished. We’re so glad you’re here and hope we can inspire you to never give up on your dreams... Remember- you don’t have to have it all figured out! Just work hard, have faith, and a whole lot of courage, and watch the magic unfold. xx
