Why We Need To Purchase Used Furniture For Our Redlands Farmhouse Remodel, number five

Why We Need To Purchase Used Furniture For Our Redlands Farmhouse Remodel


The reason is simple, our limited coin causes us to quickly understand why we ned to purchase used furniture for our Redlands Farmhouse.

After we spend, spend, spend all our funds on remodeling our old farmhouse, my husband and I are in full agreement that the only way the farmhouse can be furniture is by purchasing previously loved furniture.

We are out of coin from the unforeseen upfront costs of remodeling our Redlands farmhouse.

We have used every government energy program we are aware of to fund our farmhouse energy-efficient remodel. Here are the three government energy programs we are using: PACE, BENJI, and Enerbank.

My husband and I are nervous that all the funds from their programs go directly to Eco Alliance. We feel we are leaping with blind faith.

With prayers, our General Contractor, Deon Holloway, will make his magic happen.

Our family has weathered numerous storms, and we want to believe that Deon Holloway will provide us with a rainbow.

The video below shares some of our experiences with buying our furniture for the farm:

Below is a photo of the blue double sink vanity my husband and I are talking about in this video:

If you live in the Orange County, or Los Angeles County area and need to save some $$$ on a vanity then check out Facebook Marketplace. We find Facebook Marketplace to be a valuable resource.

Buying RSM Bookshelf for our Redlands Farmhouse

My husband, David, shares how a woman powerlifter helps us move a massive bookshelf into his truck. We are both in awe of how much weight this woman could lift.

The funny, or not so funny thing is that I thought the bookshelf was light. I thought the bookshelf is plywood, I am wrong!
