HGTV Home Tour – First feature for our carriage house!

Living Room – Dining Room Makeover with Urban Barn

I can’t believe it’s been two and a half years since we moved into our little carriage house! When we bought it, we thought it only needed a fresh coat of paint and once that was done, then we’d move in, but, alas – we had a major flood the day after we moved! I’ll ...
