Joy-Anna and Her husband met when they were kids so they’ve known each other all their life. But they got married in 2017 and have since lived for a year and a half in an RV. They had a kid named Gideon and they’re pregnant with a second child. Last year they had a pretty big announcement – they bought a house and were working on it for a while before moving in at the end of the year. And now Joy-Anna and Austin have posted a tour of their home on their youtube channel FollowtheForsyths.
Their house has 3
bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, which is more than enough for their small
family right now. They’re working on making it their own and making
it cosy. There’s still a few bits and pieces that need to be done
here, but for the most part it’s pretty much done.
Their living room
space is pretty open and includes a couple of couches with a coffee
table in between them, a kitchen area with a kitchen island and bar
stools and nice dining area with a table and chairs. Everything has a
very DIY but cosy feel to it. One of the couches was bought in a
local store, the other was gifted by their relatives. They bought
parts for the table and assembled it themselves and they’ve done a
great job of renovating the kitchen by upgrading countertops and
giving all the cabinets a fresh coat of paint.
Little Gideon has
his own bedroom, which is looking pretty sparse apart from his bed,
dresser and some toys, but he’s got a lot of space to run around
and play, which is probably way more important for kids than lots of
bedroom has a walk-in closet and a bed, the frame for which was built
by Austin and his father. A big cherry tree fell on their property
and they decided to use it to make a bed frame. That turnout out to
be quite a productive and interesting project and now their bed frame
isn’t only sturdy but it also has pull-out drawers that are great
for storage without taking up any additional space in the room.
Austin also have a guest bedroom that doubles as their office that
features a pretty cool fireplace that they can’t wait to use in the
winter. They have to get it properly checked and cleaned first but
they think it’s going to add a lot of ambience to have it burning
in the colder months.
There are two
bathrooms, one for guests and one for them, obviously. The guest
bathroom features a toilet and a shower, while the master one has a
bath. They also have a separate laundry room with washer and dryer
and a fold-out ironing board. It also doubles as a pantry too. All in
all, it looks like they really like their home and have put a lot of
work into it. Joy-Anna did mention at the beginning of the video that
they might choose to sell it in about 5 years ( we can see how that
would make sense if they plan to have more children), but that’s
not set in stone.
