Designed in the Queen Anne Victorian style, the 7,500 square foot, 5 bedroom and 4 bathroom residence is a faithful reproduction of an 1880’s Victorian home with modern systems and amenities. The construction mirrors the original techniques with plaster over button board, old growth Douglas Fir flooring and Redwood siding, framing and trim. You may recognize it as Camille Preaker’s family mansion in the HBO miniseries Sharp Objects.

Beauty can be found in the wear & tear not just in the shiny & new.

It has become one of our biggest longest projects and probably always will be • when we first moved in we had about 10 trees back here all overgrown and unhealthy.. we removed them and lived in a mud pit with no landscaping, only dreams! ⁣
⁣
Here we are almost 2 years later and we are moving along trying to make this backyard our secret oasis! ⁣
⁣
I dream what this space will look like in 5 years when all of our plants grow bigger and we can actually sit down and enjoy it 🤣

Who else is obsessed with finding the cutest places to stay when you travel? I found this gem of an #airbnb for our trip to LA last weekend. I was hooked on the funky vintage ambiance at this spot in Silver Lake. See it via the link in my profile if you want to see more pics or save it for a future trip.
.
Where are some other cool spots you've stayed, Airbnb or otherwise? Especially in the Pacific Northwest, as I plan to do a roundup of unique places to stay.

The Row House #oldhomes #london #regentspark #marylebone #wickhamplace “Houses have their own ways of dying, falling as variously as the generations of men, some with a tragic roar, some quietly, but to an after-life in the city of ghosts, while from others—and thus was the death of Wickham Place—the spirit slips before the body perishes . . . By September it was a corpse, void of emotion, and scarcely hallowed by the memories of thirty years of happiness” #emforster

This 3 story Queen Anne style home was built in 1886. It sits under the Spanish moss near a beautiful lake in Central Florida.

Electrical rough in underway. With the bulk of our structure complete we are putting power back in the residence. This is a complete rewire. We found enough splices in the initial crawl under the house to warrant thinking about this early. Once selective demolition was through it was decided. We are locating the electrical panel on the second floor to keep it out of the flood zone and all of our wiring will be pulled down from here. Box layouts and wire pulling currently underway.

People are always asking us how many bathrooms we have here at Upsala 🛀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The answer: Complicated. We have a full bathroom in the el (which is accessed via a short ladder). In the main part of the house, we have what we call “the museum bathroom.” This a relic of the museum-era at Upsala and it features two bathroom stalls and sink. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During the restoration of Upsala, this room was divided to create a sitting area and restrooms for visitors. When we moved in, the walls in these room were off-white (at best) and the yellow color that all of the woodwork was painted was…less than ideal (to put it nicely). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A fresh coat of paint went a long way in these two rooms. We added some necessary storage in the bathroom and covered up the old linoleum tile with peel and stick flooring from Home Depot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s still the same quirky space it was when we moved in, but it’s looking much better now!

~a gentle reminder that life still grows from refuse and waste~ 
Prior to our possession of this house, the back of this garage (pictured in the background) was used as a private dumping-pile. Former items in this area were (among lots of other shit) old car seats (like literal car seats), paint cans, broken glass, car headlights, old signs, broken wood, insulation, etc. Now there is a bounty of Dame’s Rocket. The earth heals!🌷🌿🌱🌸

Obsession of mine is old buildings and architecture. I was like a kid in a can’t store walking around historic downtown Charleston today. I was blown away. It is spectacular to me that these structures have been standing for hundreds and hundreds of years. Still beautiful. Still loved. Still relevant. Still strong.

Our home is in transition once again! We are in the middle of finishing the original hardwood in the old gym/office room. It looks so good! I'll share the end result within a few days 😊 We're planning on finishing the rest of the hardwood floors on the main level within the next year because it looks SO GOOD!!! Within the next month, we're going to move the gym down to the basement! So until all these projects are done, I'll just do my workouts in the living room! 💪

Oh by the way.. remember those giant boxes that the couch came in? Yeah, they're still downstairs. 🤦‍♀️😂 Who wants them?! #homeprojects #diy #homedecor #newhome #workout #hardwork #hardwood #oldhomes #homegym

The Lounsbury House in Ridgefield CT, also known as Grovelawn. 🏛 Classical Revival-style mansion that was built in 1895. Located right on Main Street, it’s the grand finale of all the beautiful houses along Main when you enter Ridgefield. Its design, by Charles Northrop, was an emulation of the Connecticut State Building exhibited at the 1893 Columbian Exposition, at the request of Governor Phineas C. Lounsbury, who attended the exhibition (and clearly just had to have it). This house has stayed perfectly preserved both inside and out, thanks to the Lounsbury family who donated it to the town in 1945. It now serves as a community center and can be rented out for events. Every time I’ve been to this little town, there’s something going on at this mansion...which is exactly how a historical mansion should be used. 👍🏻 Someone had left a glass of scotch on one of those benches that I moved to take the picture 🥃I’d like to think the ghost of Governor Lounsbury left it himself, while admiring his legacy 👻...but that’s just me ☺️

🌈This is the rainbow room. Named by the littles, of course. ❤️The kids love this room because when the late afternoon and early evening sun ☀️hits the old (circa 1846) stained glass window by the front door, rainbows fill the floor, furniture and walls. The kids go nuts, “RAINBOWS RAINBOWS RAINBOWS!”❤️🌈
.
.
🌈This living room/front door foyer area is to the left of the playroom (the playroom used to be the formal living room or piano room), so there is always overflow of puzzles, magna tile castles, tea🍵 party paraphernalia, etc (swipe to see how it usually looks). We never use the front 🚪 (main entrance is the side entrance at the back of the house), so this area is really the kids downstairs domain, whether we like it or not. 🤷‍♀️We’ll be painting 🎨 the walls, trim and beams white in the fall to open up this space, as the ceilings are pretty low in here. 🌈
.
.
🌱The kids also named our great room the “sunny side room” ☀️🍳because it gets amazing light - that’s probably everyone’s favorite room (I shared it here back in March, I’ll share it again here soon). The other room that the kids love that I haven’t shared yet is the greenhouse🌿 room. It’s right off the kitchen. Lexi calls it the “seed room” (that’s where they planted their 🥬veggie and sunflower🌻 seeds in the spring). I’ll share that room soon, we’re gearing up to do a clean up and makeover of that space. It’ll be a great spot to sit in the fall and soak in the autumn sunshine...oh wait we have littles so we definitely won’t be sitting, but maybe we’ll stand there for a minute someday🤣.🌱

Look at how thick our walls are! If you look carefully you can see how much the wall continues to extend outside the window too. There isn’t insulation in the original part of the house. The walls are made of adobe brick. Plaster has been spread directly on top of the brick-both inside and outside. Although at some point modern stucco was put on outside as well. Thomas Mendenhall wasn’t messing around when he built this house in 1876 haha. The structural engineer that we had come look at the house after we bought it said this house would probably still be here in another 142 years... on a completely different subject, even though every single one of these photos is just taken with my phone, the actual photographer in me liked the dramatic difference in sunset and morning light in these two photos.

Look at the framing of this deck! Every timber is carved and finished - see if you can spot a knot. The Gamble House, built 1909, is probably the finest example of American Craftsman design. Greene and Greene Architects designed this home for Mary and David Gamble, of the Proctor and Gamble Company.

Oh the difference some DIY improvements can make! For this room we really didn’t do much (compared to other rooms). We painted, changed curtains, changed lighting, and moved in our furniture. We’re hosting some friends tonight so I’m really excited that there’s no wait to start using this space !

Old bricks, tiles, slates and grates: old houses produce a lot of detritus. Our garden is littered with salvage - from huge unidentifiable pieces of rusted iron to lumps of dressed stone, remnants of past structures. Our builders made this picturesque pile of some smaller gleanings, which I think looks quite sculptural and lovely in the late evening sun. Old houses...they're works of art 😍

We’re making headway on the Yorktown duplex! We converted this home back into a duplex after the previous owners used it as a single family. The new siding is finished with newly wrapped columns. What color should we paint the exterior?!

Sitting in the couch in our front room, this has become one of my favorite views. I can see almost all of our favorite pieces of art and really see the heart of the home. Eventually we will peel back this awful green carpeting to expose the original hardwood floors beneath. Until then, we just imagine it’s beauty!!! What’s your favorite spot in your home? .

Chrome galore!

Sometimes you gotta find fixtures that match the age of the house. This 1940’s gem needed some vintage style fixtures. This one, which is for the freestanding bath is actually an old-style kitchen faucet system. 
But, for the freestanding bath? It works and looks GREAT! Sometimes all you need is a little creativity and some vision. Let’s talk about your vision! .

Houston we have benches! 🙌🏻 (May not be breaking news in your world but I’m pretty dang excited here 😂) I bought that table back in March not realizing that finding a good deal on the matching benches was easier said than done 😂 (thank you @surferkid_justin for lookin out for me! 👍🏻) It’s really deceiving on IG when people’s homes/rooms seem to come together over night ... I mean it is possible, I guess, if you have a nice hefty budget but that is not the norm 💸. We have lived here 3 1/2 years almost now and we just finished this little kitchen table nook area (aka our homeschool “room”). Well, is a room ever really finished??? 😂 At least it’s good for a long while with no major changes 😉. Swipe to see the next picture of how this room looked after we moved in ... and it was totally fine that way, but our patio table from the old house was wearing its welcome out after being a kitchen table for 3 years and I wanted to use it as an actual patio table again. So it moved outside to the back patio along with the rug and our livingroom rug moved into this room, musical rugs 😂 (I bought a new livingroom rug recently because this one was on the small side for that space ... that’s what happens when you buy a rug BEFORE you buy furniture 😂🤷🏼‍♀️). All this to say don’t feel bad if it takes 1 year or 10 to get a room to finally feel the way you envisioned it .... it’s a process and the longer it takes the more you appreciate the final (ish 😂) results. Third picture is the day we got possession of the house ... I think our squatter friend was trying to swipe the light fixture on his way out but broke it in the process and left it on the ground 🙄... worked in my favor though because I didn’t like that fixture anyways and Josh had no choice but to let me run out that same day and pick up a new one 😂. And that last pic is one I took of this room the first time we saw the inside of the house.

The Truman and Sylvia Bull Coe house is a Queen Anne-Eastlake built between 1880 and 1885. The property was part of a 687-acre tract of land purchased by Sylvia Coe's grandfather, Thomas Bull, in 1814. The Bull family was prominent in central Ohio; Thomas was a Revolutionary War veteran, and his grandson James was a mayor of Columbus. The acreage formed the core of the Clintonville community, which wasn't annexed by Columbus until 1910. Much of Clintonville's housing stock was built in the 1920's and 30's, and this house is one of the few Clintonville houses remaining from the 19th century. For that reason, and also for the rarity of the Queen Anne-Eastlake style of architecture in Columbus, the house is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Paint stripper was NOT involved in this video. We waffled so much on whether or not to strip the paint off the trim in this house. All other reasons aside, this video is exhibit #1 on why we wanted the trim stripped. Painting gorgeous cherry wood is a sin it's own, then to do such a poor job of it, leaves me more than mad because this creates weeks of work for us to undo.

We love this wet bar built-in by Ipswich Cabinetry, meant to look like a piece of oversized furniture rather than a wall of cabinets. The backsplash is made up of large tin tiles! In the before photo, you can see we knocked down the wall dividing the staircase from the rest of the space, vastly improving the feel of the room. Can you guess what our designer @alexandraf214 used for the pattern on the risers of the stairs? @ericrothphoto •

I hauled wood, painted a few boards and ended up in the before picture, but all this credit goes to Sean! He designed a dreamy built-in that he’s likely not ready to share since it’s not quite finished. It is going to be SUPERB, and I couldn’t wait to show it off! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

There will be 12 of us all together tomorrow and my heart is feeling quite full. It's been six years since we were all in Minnesota as a family and so much has changed! Can't wait to see Leo surrounded by his girl cousins at the cabin. He's one lucky babe. Snapped this early this morning just as the sun was coming up while sipping my coffee. Feeling blessed. #morningview #myoklstyle #oldhomes #currentdesignsituation #livingroom #CMhome #finditstyleit

I'm excited to be joining the @congressforthenewurbanism conference this week, especially for their walking tour of my very own #OldLouisville. .
A group of professionals who advocate for walkable, vibrant urban neighborhoods will be learning about our historic neighborhood, and @louisvilleforward's plans for us (which I'm very interested in hearing for myself!). .
I'll also share with the group my experience overcoming the challenges to becoming an @Airbnb host in Old Louisville, and the amazing experiences that I've had welcoming visitors for the last two years. (Sadly I won't be bringing Cash along, but we'll be covering much of the same territory as my #OldLouisvilleWithTheBestDog walking tour! 🐾: )

This house has some cool history, apparently the Brown family who lived here over 100 years ago, used to trade with the Cherokee and would hang red blankets in the side windows to alert them when it wasn’t safe.
