Welcome Home, Potters

Monica Potter, her sisters — Jessica, Bridgette and Kerry — and their mom, Nancy, toast on their back porch to their newly restored family home in Cleveland. 

BEFORE: Back Porch

The back porch where Monica and her sisters often had birthday parties and neighborhood gatherings growing up had fallen into disrepair over the years it had been abandoned. 

BEFORE: Back Porch

While the back porch was structurally sound, the decking needed to be replaced, and the siding was in desperate need of some fresh paint. 

BEFORE: Backyard

New landscaping was also in order, to bring the Potters' backyard back to its glory days when Mom, Nancy, tended to it. 

BEFORE: Backyard

The Potter sisters had plenty of debris to clear out first before any real work could be done to level out the backyard and lay new sod. 

BEFORE: Backyard

With a straight path to a lake just beyond the property fence, the backyard renovation was key to making the house feel like a home for the Potter sisters again. 

AFTER: Back Porch

After restoring the back steps, the deck railing and the flower beds, the back of the Potters' home is brighter than ever. 

AFTER: Back Porch

New French doors, decking with a light gray paint and fresh white siding transformed the back porch back into an ideal spot for family gatherings. 

AFTER: Backyard

The formerly unused backyard space has been revived with new landscaping, a stone and brick pathway leading to a new outdoor dining area and a vegetable garden for Mom, Nancy. 

AFTER: Backyard

The sisters planted a white lilac tree in the back corner of the backyard as a memorial "living tree" to honor their late father. 

BEFORE: Workshop

The Potter sisters' father, Paul, was infamous for his inventions, most created in a garage workshop space in the backyard that was torn down. The family wanted to carry on his love for inventions by rebuilding the workshop in its former space.

AFTER: Workshop

The new workshop, built from scratch by local Amish carpenters, mirrors the classic style of the new exterior of the house. 

AFTER: Workshop

Red doors lead into a bright, open space where the Potter sisters and their families can continue to craft and create long after the home's restoration is finished.

AFTER: Workshop

The new workshop has plenty of floor and tabletop space for new projects. 

AFTER: Workshop

When the Potters bought their childhood home back, they found their father's old workbench in the basement. Monica restored it and uses it as a centerpiece of the new workshop.
