It’s hard to believe, but we are down to just 6 short days until Move In Day at the farm! The water, electric, gas, heat and air have all been hooked up – and the mad dash to complete a million little last-minute projects is on!
The Simple House at the farm – 6 days to go to move in day!
We still have quite a bit to finish up on our little Simple House at the farm. The counter tops won’t arrive for a few weeks. The floors still need to be finished and sealed, and a handful of other small projects will need our attention in the following months as well. But that can all take a backseat next week, because we will finally call the farm our full-time home!
With about 100% confidence, I can tell you we will never say we are “completely” finished at the farm. There is simply too much fun for us in always having a few projects to do. But the fact that we can now work on those projects anytime we want is a dream come true.
So as we head into the final week of true construction – we thought we would share the progress of the Simple House through a little photo tour below – we hope you enjoy!

6 Days Till Move In Day – The Photo Tour
The big fans are now hanging in the main room
The Kitchen Barn Wood Island is complete and waiting on the countertop to arrive
The metal on the back porch is in place and the back porch ceiling fans will go up this week
The kitchen area – countertops and window trim will finish it off!
The Control Room – the little 8 x 6 room in the back of the house is about the last area we need to finish.
The simple split air conditioner unit above the cabinet cools the entire house. I love how it blends in, with zero ducts in the house
The on-demand water heater that serves two purposes – a hot water tank and our furnace. One side will send out hot water through tubes in the floor in the winter to heat the home efficiently without a single duct. The other side heats our hot water
The garage is nearing completion as well
In the garage – we continued to use the metal and wood combo for the walls. The metal used as a knee wall should help to keep things clean
The on demand heat system with the pipe connections for the floor. About as complicated as the Simple House gets.
The shower is all in and ready to go! For a smaller house plan – we kept the shower space big to keep from feeling cramped
The Big Wall as we now call it. A blank slate ready to be decorated. The ideas that have been flowing in from our readers have been amazing – now we just need to pick one!
Just to know there will always be projects – the bonus area in the garage is far from completion 🙂
