  1. I'm excited about this renovation, I have been waiting to vote on this cabin, This is paradise on earth I hope I win this, I love N.C. Hope you keep the rustic wood furniture, there hard to find. It just needs updating but keep the character of the home.

  3. I Don't Believe That the DIY Team could have chosen a better place then this location. To transform this old
    farmhouse into a beautiful, nice new cabin for some lucky person to own and to enjoy for the rest of their lives!

    I know, that I would definitely stay there for as long as I could before I died. I love the fact that it is in a private and seclusive area all to itself and has it own water front propriety and pier. And to think that I could go fishing any time I wanted too, would just be like being in heaven.

    No wonder the Robinson Family passed this family home down from generation to generation. They knew
    it was a perfect place to live and raise a family. What more could you ask for, then peace of mind and a peaceful location to live it out on.

  6. so sad, another absolutely wonderful old house being 'destroyed'. when this house is done it will have NONE of it's old charm !! . today was the first time i saw this one and was so excited when i first looked at it. maybe some day everyone will appreciate all the old workmanship and strive to keep the reno as true to the house as it should be….

    • It survived many storms including Bertha, Fran, Floyd, Bonnie, Dennis twice (2 weekends in a row) and many more with the most recent bing Sandy. So why was a total tear down and rebuild totally necessary?

  8. The house has so many salvageable antiques, dishes, books, and beds. I hope to see so many of the furniture pieces reused. These pieces give the house so much history. What a find! Good job!
