In the Beginning ~ Part 1

Where did The Urban Farmhouse come from?


It started with a dream. Rhonda & Crystal Lavoie had a very specific dream home in mind and in order to make it happen, a few things needed to be done. First, a custom design had to be created in order to incorporate an indoor swimming pool, while keeping with the much desired farmhouse style. Second, most of the work had to be done by themselves in order to keep within their budget. And third, they had to find a great group of contractors to help along the way.


During the build the couples home quickly became known as The Urban Farmhouse due to it’s distinctive style. Progress and photos were shared on Facebook, Instagram & blog posts and as the house grew, so did the followers. That was in 2015.


Fast forward to 2018. The Urban Farmhouse has been featured in Saskatoon Home Magazine, has held numerous events and is well known by it’s almost 1000 Facebook followers. When Rhonda & Crystal decided to pursue their recent new business ventures, it was a definite yes to keeping and continuing on with The Urban Farmhouse name.
