Rose of Sharon Farmhouse
Restored Master Bathroom

Farmhouse Restoration from Top to Bottom

It’s hard to not want to touch every surface when restoring a 1920’s older home. To make it new, make it brighter, and have more storage! The challenge is knowing where to put the effort and more importantly where to put the funds from the budget. Therefore, the kitchen and master bathroom seem to always take the cake. However, for this house it was an investment not only of labor, but love. For instance in this farmhouse every room is worthy of being restored to greatness.


The Process

Right on Rose of Sharon Dr. in the heart of Durham, NC is a farmhouse that has been fully restored. We partnered with the homeowner to create a spa-like oasis for the farmhouse’s master suite. The original master bathroom was small. Similarly, it was outdated and awkward to get in to.

Therefore, we added an addition on the exterior to the back of the property. This allowed for us to enlarge the kitchen and the bathroom. We installed a pattern floor tile, with historic penny tile for the shower floor. The homeowner’s selected a furniture piece for the new vanity area, and even were able to refurbish an old cast iron tub; using both new and old materials found on the property this is truly a stunning home and to be enjoyed for years to come.
