September 2009 Farmhouse
Location: Camden, Arkansas
This unassuming Folk Victorian farmhouse had plenty of potential but no offers—that is, until Thurnina Wilson and husband Steve got hold of it in 2011. Before moving in earlier this year, the couple commuted 40 minutes every weekend to rural Camden. Steve handcrafted molding for the home, in addition to installing drywall and sanding and stripping the original millwork. The ambitious couple is nearing completion of their whole-house renovation and couldn't be prouder. "We worked our hides off," says Thurnina. "People come by and tell us that they feel like they're in a museum."
