    • Ditto. My service dog is a Newfoundland and the DIY Dog House is Newfie-sized! My son predicts that the window seat in the living room will become the swankiest dog bed in Maine.

  2. Thank you Victoria for saving the Newel Posts, I was sad when it was stated that they were repurposing it instead to re using it. Thanks again Victoria, glad they listened to you.

  4. Sorry I do not like the book case in the front room. It is unfinished and cheap looking.

    • Move it to the office, would look nice up there too.

    • Thanks. That is a great ideal and would look much better in the office.:)

      Hawkweed on August 13, 2012 at 9:38 pm
    • agreed, would look right fit in in the office and would leave room for a sofa in the living room! nicer bookcases could cover that wall behind a sofa in the living room. Can still incorporate a little of the trim wall rusticity. But go ahead and move them to the office assuming there is a wall tall enough for them. They'd look great up there. you could even cut the bin part off and put it under the eaves as storage and seating in the office–i would bet they would hold hanging file folder frames for files and use the bookcase on a smaller wall too. Good luck!

  5. I'm at a loss for words! I'm not usually taken with a property like this, although I've submitted entries for the blog cabin in previous years, and for past year's HGTV Dream Homes, too. What makes this home unique? This wonderful home renovation is inspired. The workmanship is superb; and I'm amazed by the attention to detail. All of the design elements honor the home's rich heritage, heart and spirit in a way that isn't often seen in a project like this. It seems like this was a labor of love for all those involved. Great job, everyone!

  6. I live in hampton ga. And I always watch the show but everytime I see your show I wonder why an opertunity like that never happens around here. I have the worst kitchen you could imagine and now my cabinets are starting to come off the wall. Me and my husband don’t really have the money to fix anything and I just wish that we could be on a show like this that would help us out so much. I know something that great could never happen for me but I can dream. Well I guess we will be able to fix everything up in about 5 to 10 years when we save up the money to get it done. I really like your show though but could you come to griffin ga or locus grove ga home depot. Anyways I guess my dream kitchen will continue to be a dream. But if you ever deside to come this way email me at so we can have a chance to be on your show. Thank you

  10. Love the house, excellent job by all involved. I especially love the lodge look in the guest bedroom, very understated.
