Farmhouse-Style Modern Beach House and Sunday Morning Coffee

| |

Today is moving day! We begin the remodel of our Farmhouse-Style Modern Beach House tomorrow and I am so excited.

I have been thinking a lot about our last remodel in Waco and can’t help but get excited about this next project. Our farmhouse-style modern beach house remodel is going to be such an amazing journey. I hope you will follow along.

Thanks also for joining me for Sunday morning coffee. Today I am sharing my weekly thoughts about entertaining, decor, crafts, recipes, and our exciting remodel!

Sunday Morning Coffee

A Little About Me

Farmhouse-Style Modern Beach House

Today is moving day!

We have been packing for a few weeks and today the movers are here to move everything from the beach house into storage.

We have already started with the project. Last week we removed everything from the kitchen and the landscaping in the front.

Beach House Kitchen Update

Just so you know, we didn’t toss a thing from the kitchen when we did the demo. Everything was carefully removed and taken to my friend’s home where she is going to redo her kitchen with all of our cabinets, countertops, and appliances. I promise to share the progress of her kitchen remodel too.

Anytime you can reuse items instead of adding them to trash is a great thing!

Packing the Beach House and More Plans

The packing didn’t take too long and I can’t wait for the home to be emptied out today.

The family room was easy to pack up.

See that sloping ceiling? We are raising the ceiling in this room to 11 feet. And the slope will be gone which is something our very tall children will appreciate very much.

You can see the dramatic slope in this photo too. The window on the left (with a great ocean view) will be three feet taller.

The family room downstairs and the back part of our garage will both be new bedrooms.

This upstairs bedroom will go away as we are opening up this area to the family room and kitchen.

The Waco Bedrooms

I have been spending a lot of time thinking about the design of the five bedrooms in our beach house. And All I keep thinking about is the bedrooms in our Waco home.

I just might be using a few things from these rooms for planning our new bedrooms at the beach house.

Except, of course, they need a more modern feel.

Three of the bedrooms will have a king bed, one bedroom will have two queens, and another will have a queen.

What a fun week we had. I had no idea my post about white kitchens would cause such a stir and thank you all for visiting so many of my posts. I absolutely loved making the Easter basket cake and the outdoor Easter planter. Who knew an entire spring table could be inspired by a napkin?
