Well...here we go, friends. Welcome to the beginning of our Festive Farmshed adventure.
To catch you up to speed, we recently got this amazing shed from Leland's Barns and Sheds. And y'all. It felt like Christmas morning. I don't think I've ever been so excited to see something coming down the driveway. I mean, when's the last time you saw a tiny house being delivered?! It was AH. MAY. ZING.
Leland's builds all of their sheds and cabins (we are talking full on GUEST HOUSES) at their facility. Then they are moved to their new location. This is key, you guys. Because if you move, you can take them with you. So that she shed that you worked so hard on? You can be together forever. Happily ever after.
She's been sitting on our property for a few weeks while we focused on getting back to school, etc. Now it's time to get started AND MOMMA CAN'T WAIT.
But before we dig into plans, how about a little spec talk first?
-I went with Lelands because of a high volume of recommendations and I couldn't be happier.
-She's a 10x20 from the chalet collection (and she's spectacular)
-She has built in shelving, a peg board, a work bench, corner storage and an electrical package.
-She's situated on a gravel foundation (4" thick, standard for most shed bases)
And now that y'all are properly acquainted, let's talk makeover plans and inspiration...
1. First things first, insulation and cooling/heating. It gets hot here in Middleofnowhere, TX. So keeping this thing cool is going to be essential. Especially since I will be working out here. We chose this AC unit and will be installing it on the back side of the shed, since the window side is facing our (soon to be) patio.
2. Next up....walls and paint. And maybe shiplap. To be honest? I've never been a big shiplap girl (hold your fire). If I had my druthers, we'd probably just paint and move on. But since insulation is a must, we'll need to finish it off. And shiplap is an affordable + stylish way to do that. What I'm REALLY excited about is the ceiling treatment, since we'll be insulating that, too. Loving this inspiration from Kresswell Interiors.
3. After walls, comes the flooring. I've been debating whether to cover them or paint them. And I think I've decided on the latter. I don't want anything fussy. This is a workspace. Don't get me wrong, I want it to be beautiful...just NOT fussy. I just love this basic painted look from Farmhouse Made.
I am so excited to start, I can barely handle it! My mind is swirling with design ideas. So buckle up, because it's gonna be a ride.
