Our Story

We are Monika and Paul. We thought it was funny that when we were married our initials became “MA & PA”. Names that certainly associate the mind to an old farm couple. And here we are …. practically an old farm couple as we work to restore this charming old farmhouse. This Ma & Pa will be revealing the progress as we revive this beautiful place.

Our dream come true

We have had many people say “you are living the dream”. It is true, this is a dream come true for us. I have said “we are not living a dream we are living a nightmare”, I say so only in jest. Those words are only meant to emphasize the amount of work needed to transform this place into the beauty we know it will be.

Our history

We feel so blessed to be the parents of three amazing boys that we raised in a lovely neighborhood home, where we kept ourselves very active with sports and other family activities.  We managed to fit in a cabin remodel while we were in the thick of work and kids schedules. When we became “empty nesters” we decided to sell our family home in search of our new adventure.  It was what we consider ordained timing that this farmhouse came to the market and we knew it was meant to be. That timing was no coincidence…so our story begins…In this blog, we will bring you with us as we remodel, restore, redesign, rebuild, reinvent, revive, and love this charming place.
