I've mentioned this home in a few previous posts, and I'm so happy to be able to give you a tour today. Our long-time friends (20+ years!) who we have vacationed with, served in church with, celebrated babies with, and laughed with built their dream home. They call their spot "The Wilderness" and it is...as much of one that you can have in Oklahoma! They have carved the perfect spot out of the trees for the house, rearranged ponds, and laid out a beautiful homestead ready for lots of family fun.
This journey began over two years ago-just the building part-they've been planning it for much longer. They have done most of the work themselves and I'm sure they know where every nail, stud, joint, and wire are located.
The Kitchen-includes a fabulous variety of countertops and cabinet finishes
Kitchen Ceiling-Wallpaper painted and faux-finished to look like copper
Kitchen eating and sitting area with incredible cathedral ceiling

The plans for the house were very well thought out and included so many features that make great sense! For instance, there is no laundry room, but there is a washer/dryer in the master closet and another upstairs in the kids' space for them to do their own laundry (imagine that!). There's a water fountain in the garage-one of my children's favorite features! There's a crushed ice machine. There's a craft room, full of counter space and cabinet storage with a window to look out of over the desk. There's a table and sitting area for everyone to gather in the kitchen. Plus so many more things, but those are some of my favorites.
Family Room with gorgeous soaring barrel ceiling
My friend is a fantastic decorator and did everything herself. The home is loaded with her personality.
Dining Room with stacked stone wall
Home Office (do you see the turquoise detail on the chair and the cowhide rug?)
Craft Room-the counter wraps around behind the door with more cabinets
My pictures and descriptions don't do it justice. We are so happy for you, friends! Thank you for sharing your incredible home with us (on the blog and in real life!).
