    An Inside Look At Our Fixer Upper

    In our last post, Our Fixer Upper, I blogged all about the outside of our mid-century home on Brewery Street. Now is the second part, a post about some of the work we are doing on the inside. The most important piece of advice I can share is to consult an expert! Professionals know their business and for the interior house remodel I reached out to friends and valued customers. After closing the sale of our barn, now The Barn by Firehouse Antiques, we contacted our friend Emily. She shared many ideas how we could renovate the space to reflect our style as well as maintain the conveniences we need…

    The Barn by Firehouse Antiques

    Yes, we bought a barn. Firehouse Antiques is expanding and we could not be more excited! About eight years ago, we went to a local estate sale here in New Harmony, IN and the wheels to grow our business really started turning. The family of our gentleman friend held the sale in this amazing old barn just two blocks from our shop. Although eight years ago the timing was not right for his family to sell the property, my husband and I let them know that if they ever sold the barn we were interested. Over the years we have walked our small town’s streets and dreamed of our expansion…
