The Indiana Project is a 1,600 square foot home built in the 1920’s in Sarah’s sweet North Carolina town of Southern Pines. This historic renovation took a full 8 months to complete, and got its start in January of 2013. Here on the blog, Sarah recounted the demolition, the woes of construction limitations and bureaucracy, the agony of lighting choices, and the decision, nope re-decision – nah… deciding again over the exterior paint color.Seriously, three different colors. See!
Readers had the opportunity to weigh in on decisions, and this discussion fueled much of Sarah’s process in real time. Having the blog as a resource for brainstorming was an invaluable experience.
Sarah is a wife, mother, company president, and co-owner of Beaver Path Properties, (her family company that renovates, rents and sells historic homes in and around Southern Pines, NC). She is also a blogger and co-founder of The Estate of Things!
The Indiana House is not the first entire house to be gutted and so beautifully put back together, and it won’t be the last. Sarah is already planting the idea in her dear husband’s head to move again, sounds like she has a two year bug.
Sarah’s dedication to making her renovated homes an example of historic integrity in her community is what separates her from others that are playing the flip game in the world of Real Estate.
The story of the Indiana House unfolds before us in the chronology of blog posts below. She’s also provided a series of before and after shots throughout the home here.
