Four years ago we moved to our little farm and Brook saw my eyes light up when I entered the second floor of the barn. It’s the perfect space for workshops and classes with that gorgeous lighting.
He told me two years to get started.
“Give me two years.”
Well it has been longer than that and I am okay with that because we have been watching and obeying God’s hand in the process.
So how does the garage fit into this barn renovation? It fits perfectly. Between the time we moved onto the property until now, I completed my certification to become a integrative wellness coach. I have been meeting with clients at my dining room table. So supper dishes are cleaned up and our dining room is transformed into mommy’s office in ten minutes on those evenings.
I need a space to meet with clients and host folk school.
Folk School will be once a month workshops where people can gather to learn traditional ancestral ways of living, such as fermenting foods, cultural crafts, bread making, and more. I plan to teach workshops and host other folks that are skilled in a traditional craft.
We all start somewhere and expand as our tribe grows. So this is the beginning of the barn project. Folk School and Greenhouse Coaching Groups will begin in this section of our home.

This is the current garage situation. Brook cut a window into the back part of the garage for extra light.
The garage was an addition to the farmhouse years before we moved in and so one side was sided like the exterior. Brook revealed the wood siding and the stone from the old chimney. The wood siding will be painted white and the stone will be sandblasted and re-pointed.
The back corner of the garage is a storage area, Brook framed it out and added an old door that was left in the barn. This will be my storage area.
Here is what I am visualizing for the completed space. Doors like this to replace the garage door
I bought a sink like this years ago on craigslist. It weighs like 300 pounds and Brook has moved it twice, with help of course. Once we move it to the garage it will be it’s forever home.

Right now we are deciding if the cinder block wall should be painted white or dry walled? There are some awesome looking rooms with painted block walls. Would it be too much texture with all the other things happening in the room or would it add more character to my boho vibe?
