Our farm cottage, six years in the making

Next month, it will be 6 years since we came to live at Red Gate Farm.  We've worked hard to improve our home, inside and out.  Hopefully, you can see some of the improvements.

Although you may still be blue, you've come a long way baby....

Enjoying the beginning of a new week,
Chris at Red Gate Farm


  1. what a cute house! You've done a great job. Love the barn redo. I'm glad you didn't tear it down.

  2. Your blue cottage just radiates the love you have put into her...she is a happy home..

  3. Your home looks so warm and inviting! Just perfect!

  4. Awww you've really charmed her right up. Very pretty place you've got there. We've been in our house 6 years too:)

  5. You guys have done a great job with Red Gate Farm! It's a beautiful homestead and one that you can be so proud of! I love 'before' and 'after' pictures because they show you, point blank, the rewards of all your hard work.

  6. It looks great!! I love before and afters, and yours are great!

  7. Awww, your cottage is adorable!Good job before and after pics! Traci

  8. What a charming house. It always amazes me what people can do to spiffy up their homes. Great job. Please stop by my New England blog and have a visit. New followers are always welcome. looking forward to many more visits.

  9. Hi Chris! What a sweet country cottage you have and I love that you still have your old barn...only lucky is that! I really like your blue looks like a grayish blue. Our's is blue too but not nearly as pretty as yours.. and it will be changing next spring hopefully. Right now we're concentrating on getting the picket fence up and getting firewood done but hubby hurt his back so all is on hold at the moment. Oh well...such is life. Have a wonderful Wednesday. Maura :)
