the Porch House/HGTV Pilot


The Porch House is a charming 1900s farmhouse in Ellensburg, WA.  The home was originally built elsewhere in town and moved here by oxen cart early in the 20th century (at least that’s the history passed down by neighbors and past residents).  We bought the house in February 2017 and launched into a 16-day renovation of the kitchen, sunroom, master bedroom, living room, and exterior, which was filmed by HGTV for a pilot episode of ‘Rehab Crazy’.

(I’ll add more photos once our pilot airs so you can see the transformation first on HGTV!)

The remainder of the renovation should take about 2 months (on a much slower pace) as we prepare the home for resale.
