Location: Viroqua, Wisconsin
My husband and I remodeled our turn-of-the-century farmhouse completely. It was pretty primitive when we purchased it and I took an entire year to repaint it myself while we lived elsewhere.
The floors were covered in lead paint and the woodwork was dark and partially painted. We replaced some of the windows and had the home completely re-worked for energy efficiency.
The house is mainly furnished with second-hand items and things that I have made. There are always teenagers littering about, bouncing on the trampoline and running barefoot through the rambling gardens or swinging from the rope swing. Our family home is happy, fun and well-loved and super colorful!
