Our home was built in 1907 and sits on 7 1/2 acres. It was owned by the same family until we bought it in 2008.
Before we even moved in, we began making the house “ours” and six years later, our remodeling/redecorating is still not complete!
A farm and two little boys slowed down the progress for us, but our home has come a long way and we’re happy to share it with you! But first...
Check out these before and afters, and then take a look at the posts at the bottom of this page to see all the projects that got us to this point...
We’ve taken a century old house that was literally fallen down, and made it into a home for a modern family. And as with every other renovation in America, it was harder than we thought, cost more than we expected, and took longer than we hoped.
But in the end, it was so worth it. Because when we take a second to look around, we realize that we’ve saved a piece of Iowa’s history.
