Marin Dream house
A blog memorializing the renovation of a Texas dream farmhouse
Hi there! Nice to meet you!
I'm Ashlyn Marin, and I would love you to come along for the ride as my husband, Jared, and I realize our dream. Jared and I met in high school in south Texas and when he joined the military we promised to keep in touch. Though we both did make an effort over the years, our contact became very sporadic. I went off to college and the big city (Dallas) and got my degree in Occupational Therapy and life moved on. Three years ago, at my ten year high school reunion, I ran into Jared again and we both knew instantly that we belonged together. Two months later we were married in my parent's back yard, and there's been no looking back.
Six months ago, after Jared got out of the Air Force, we found our dream home near where we grew up in Texas and we are starting on our new adventure. The House is an 1878 stone farmhouse on six acres. We got the house for a song, and now spend all our free time, with our boxer puppy Bruce, turning the chaos into a dream. Watch as we learn.
