Hey y’all, it’s Nicole! Welcome to 1776 Faux Farmhouse. I wanted to take the time to introduce myself so that you know a little bit about me so that way you feel welcomed into this crazy part of my world.

So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty, shall we?

I grew up in Utah and I am the oldest of three brothers and as my dad puts it “I’m his favorite daughter”.

I met Michael in 2012 through a mutual friend and we clicked immediately. We are each other’s opposites, which makes him the calm to my crazy. We were married the following year because when you know, you know. I received my Elementary Education degree in 2017. While going to school Michael and I built a builder-grade home and my love for do-it-yourself projects, decorating, and design emerged. During that time, I taught for two years as a fourth-grade teacher at a local elementary school before leaving to start my next adventure as a Stay at Home Momma.

My world changed for the better in 2018 when Little Miss made her grand entrance and in 2022 when Little Man made his calm entrance. They made me a mom and that is the highest, most cherished title that I have ever wanted.

When we brought Little Miss home from the hospital, Michael and I quickly realized that we were bursting at the seams of our house. Having Hazel, Lucy, and lots of baby paraphernalia made our small house feel even smaller. We started looking for our next “Home Sweet Home” and we quickly realized that what we wanted we wouldn’t be able to get in our area. So since we knew we could tackle DIY projects in our last builder-grade home, we decided to do it again, just on a much BIGGER scale, and with that 1776 Faux Farmhouse started!
