Let me tell you about my first world problems… There are literally so many pretty things in this world that I could put into our room (things that are affordable even) that it is really hard to choose. I have been frantically thumb scrolling through furniture on my phone for days. Literally. I am finally placing orders, but the room has to actually be *ready* first and that’s where moldings come
Hey homies! I really enjoyed reading through everyone’s ORC posts last week and I CANNOT wait to see every room unfold! If you’re new here or new to the One Room Challenge, it is a 6 week challenge to re-do a room from start to finish in front of everyone on the internet. Not intimidating at all. The whole thing is lovingly organized by Linda at Calling it Home and
Hi friends! If you’re new to our blog, allow me to introduce ourselves! We’re Andy and Candis Meredith. We have 7 kids (6 boys and a girl) and we restore historic homes in Utah. We have a TV show on HGTV and a new book called Old Home Love. I have been renovating homes for 14 years and Andy joined me when we got married 4 years ago! I feel
One of our favorite houses in the book is called The Lemmon-Dixon House. We call it that because of the original owners’ last names–although they were married, Mammie kept her maiden name which I think is actually kind of adorable. Check her out on her bicycle. She was an amazing woman who owned her own store in downtown Payson and made her husband, Hyrum, sell his sheep herd so she could buy it. They
Hello friends! We are so excited to tell you that we are ready to sell the Lemmon-Dixon house in Payson, Utah. We had an adorable family trying to buy it and they weren’t able to move after all. We really want someone who will love it as much as we do! Here are the details: Approx. 3,600 sq.ft. 5 bedrooms 1 secret room 1 turret :) 3 bathrooms 1/3 acre
I’m sure there is no introduction necessary for John and Sherry, they are the amazing couple behind the blog “Young House Love” where they share their renovation and decorating journeys with the world. I honestly think they have one of the best organized websites on the planet (I’m a geek about that stuff) and the wealth of knowledge they have on there is just incredible! www.instagram.com/oldhomelove Allow us to caption
Hi friends!! I’ll just start by saying, yes, we have a thing for black/navy colored houses. :) We have been working on sprucing up my sister’s very first home (I basically forced her to buy it a few years ago because it is SO cute) and it’s ready for a new family!! We didn’t get to do a full restoration, it had already been updated to the point that it
Almost exactly one year ago today we met a wonderful person named Suzanne at the Vintage Whites market in Salt Lake. We were their special guests (love you, Jana and Vanessa) and Suzanne–as she told us later–came to pitch us about a book and buy a few antiques. She was SO chill about it, like it was no big deal, but I immediately started to FREAK OUT and told her not
We have about a bazillion things to write about to document the process that Love House went through to get where it is today. I think that will be a fun little thing we catch everyone up on here periodically (unless you want to cruise through our 1,500 posts on instagram until you get to the beginning ;) I wanted to share some of the images from the book for
I remember the first time we saw the interior of the school. I had prepared myself mentally from the MLS photos to not expect too much by way of original detail. I knew we would have the staircase Newell posts and that was about it. Cry face. 😭 It is completely up to us to bring character back in (as with most of our houses) and we are absolutely up
Hi guys! Today is a big day, we are finished with one of our favorite projects of all time, the Healing House, and ready for the next family to love and appreciate it! If we are being totally honest, it took a lot longer and a lot more money than we hoped, but in the end all that really matters is that it is ready for it’s next 100 years!
If you follow us on Instagram you have seen some sneak peeks of our “dream home.” I’m not sure it would qualify as a dream home for many, but we are not really normal people. Built in 1907, this over 15,000 sq.ft. school served grades from 1st all the way up to 10th. It is set in a super rural (and perfect) Utah town surrounded by untouched mountains and fields.
