Johanna's Greek Revival Rescue

Name: Johanna
Location: Buchanan, Michigan

My house, built in 1857 and known as the DeArmond House is a prominent Greek Revival 2 story home in a soon to be historic neighborhood. I rescued the home a year ago from the previous owner who was about to replace all the original windows and had carpeted throughout in wall to wall beige.

The kitchen has been the main focus of an epic remodel with the removal of 2 walls, the revealing of the original poplar flooring and a custom re-fit with a salvage sink, hand built local black walnut sink cabinet, metro shelving with salvage butcher block and various other vintage finds.

I rarely buy anything new and so have furnished the home with an eclectic mix gathered over the 10 years of my life here in America. I am originally from London.

The process thus far has taught me that patience and an open mind lead to the expression of individuality and a healthier bank account.

Thanks, Johanna!
