    Chip & Joanna? Ick! It doesn’t deserve to be turned into an HGTV special. Restored as closely as possible to its original character, this would be a great place to live. I’d want it for that dynamite front porch alone! It invites people to take a load off & have a glass of sweet tea.

    Hmnn…plaster or bead board? Bead board or plaster? Decisions, decisions. Best to head for the veranda with mint julep in hand and ponder the possibilities. The Deep South sure has some interesting houses.

    Looks like it needs a good bit of TLC. Don’t know why they are tearing down the old walls, but that’s a major job. Don’t see any sign of the kitchen or bath. Would love a photo of the right side of the house. In at least one of the rooms, even the sub-floor is being replaced. Is that third picture the back of the house? Photo 5 shows the front foyer with lots of spaces to replace or fill. Is photo 6 further down the front hall? Like the Bay window in photo 8. Is photo 9 the living room? Photo 14 shows the room that appears to need the most work. Great commute to Atlanta! I might be interested in this one.

    C & J are justly famous for their past HGTV shows but if I had to choose an HGTV couple to offer inspiration, Ben and Erin of the Laurel, Mississippi, based Hometown show would be better style models in their approach for this house. They are nice folks who are renovating old houses in their hometown one at a time.

    Best to wholesale remove and replace plaster walls in houses when they are full of cracks (especially ceilings) or are badly deteriorated from extensive water damage. Kind of a moot discussion point as someone has already removed most of the plaster here. Most total “gut jobs” involve removal of the plaster backing wood lath strips as well. In any case, I see here a partially rehabbed house that needs to be finished out. While raised/standing seam metal roofs are seldom described as beautiful, they are very durable and can last over a century with occasional maintenance. If this were mine, I’d keep the metal roof provided that it’s water-tight. Someone with old house rehab experience could complete this project without too much difficulty based on what the photos show. Best of course to visit the house in person and conduct a thorough inspection before buying. Many cottages from this era across the Southern states are clad with shiplap planks inside as it required less time and skill to install. Plaster walls were a more luxurious finish so it would have been nice if they had been saved. There are a few tradespeople experienced in plaster walls/ceilings but the costs of going back with plaster would greatly exceed drywall. I would be curious to see what this house looks like after restoration/renovation.

      And I wish I could be the one to restore/renovate it. This is exactly the kind of house I love: one story, not too big, unremuddled, good sized property.

  5. Funny, very first thing I thought with that first pic was that it looked just like Chip and Joanna’s home! (Then of course, gasp! Please don’t let the inside be a C&J gut job as well!). Much to work with here, I like to see smaller homes like this as well; keeps me realistic on what I can handle for a restoration job.

    Oh, my! The country farmhouse I’ve always wanted. So much potential. That fireplace is gorgeous. My arrangement would have the living room the room with the only fireplace. It’s surprising to see only one. Perhaps there are more in rooms we didn’t see. I think that the room with the floor missing would be the kitchen. The back door seems to be in there. I may have to go see this one for real. It’s within 30 miles of my house!
