Silver Creek Cottage, if you follow me on Instagram you may hear me refer to our home as this often, that is because that is what we have named our hobby farm! To us this was a really thought out process and still to this day we are so excited over the name we picked! Okay, let’s take a trip down memory lane for a second. How we got here? well, long story short we purchased a fixer upper, and discovered it was once one of Iowa’s one room schoolhouses and it happens to be right next to you guessed it Silver Creek.
Our cozy little fixer upper just screamed cottage to me, we are nestled between soybean and corn field’s. Plus, I love vintage cottage elements so much it all just felt right.
If you look up the meaning of Cottage you’ll see it say’s “a dwelling forming part of a farm establishment, used by a worker.” that definition was so fitting for us and our overall goals to make our home and land a working hobby farm!
We plan on making a welcome sign for the front drive, right here next to the flag, and of course we couldn’t be more excited about it.
We would like to thank you all for being here with us on our fixer upper journey from all of the projects, to the silly exciting things like naming our cottage. With all of that said, Welcome to Silver Creek Cottage.
