October 2010 Farmhouse

Location: Pekin, IN
Status Saved!

In a bold move that's earned them quite the reputation around town, California residents Ann and Kevin Mutschler ditched the urban lifestyle of San Jose in favor of a small town and a big project. When Kevin saw this 1863 farmhouse, in Pekin, Indiana (population 1,334), for the first time, he phoned his wife and told her, "This feels like home." After years of dedicated patching and gutting, the resourceful couple is nearing the end of their hard work, with a beautifully restored piece of history to show for it. See the final results here.
