Host Joan Steffend tours the home of a couple who turned a one-room rustic cottage into a fascinating conversation piece.
- Salvaged full-view retail doors were used for the front door to maximize the view and the light.
- On the upstairs landing, an addition was built around a real porthole that allows light in from the back. An old-fashioned life preserver frames a mirror.
- The hand railings leading into the living room are actually authentic tools.
- Two beautiful stained-glass windows suspended from the ceiling separate the entryway.
- An industrial beam that divides the living area from the dining area is enhanced by a section of a wooden arch that was stashed away in the basement. Two intricate windows hang on each side to complete the rustic archway.
- The updated kitchen sports a stairway to the second floor built right into the kitchen island. An old oar acts as a hand rail.
