This enchanting house was re-erected exactly "as found". The owners wanted to have the reclaimed cabin put up on their site without changing a single thing. Notice the off-center door and window. To accomodate their family and friends, they built a full basement which has a playroom, bath and bedroom. The main floor contains the living room, dining area and kitchen as well as a powder room, then the master suite occupies the full third floor, while the children's dormitory was built in the original attic eaves and takes up all of the fourth floor. This family got all the square footage they wanted without altering the footprint one bit. A large porch with an outdoor fireplace is always in use, whether on a summer evening or on a clear winter day.

Almost everything in this house was historically correct; even the unevenly sized windows were replaced exactly as they were 150 years ago.
This cozy family room is a well-used gathering place.
Heart pine floors, hand-hewn beams and weathered barnwood cover every inch of this dining room. Not a speck of sheet rock to be found!
The newell post and spindles were salvaged with the house, a rare treat.
The fresh evergreen wreath says Welcome!
The charming coat rack by the front door says Stay!
Anything easier than decking the halls with fresh-cut magnolia?
