1850 House

Jane Benson Ackerman put off the renovation of her home for 15 years. There were major problems: a flooded basement, a muddy yard, a dark and gloomy kitchen, and a dysfunctional bathroom. She had been amassing salvaged goods in the barn for years, and incorporated many of them into the new design, including a large cast-iron sink that is the highlight of her new kitchen.
