Scenes from a Salvaged House
It's been awhile since we tooted our own horn about finishing(ish) the house we designed, struggled to build (please see every post from years 2008-2011), and have only slightly regretted due to nasty nasty building issues (please see every post from Sept 2011 - January 2012). Or then again, just don't see any old posts that document the stress and strife that led us to where we are today which is, well, home. Who needs all that drama? And home it is indeed despite the cracking porches, unfinished electrical, hodge-podge paint jobs, and questionable overhangs. The industrial/rustic style we achieved was pure accident but pretty easy to accomplish since each aspect of the finish-out came from deconstructed homes and Habitat for Humanity. Not for everyone, but she suits us fine.
