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 furniture.
The master 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.
Joy-Anna and 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.
