The short and sweet story of our home. Nick and I bought this pre-1900s farm home in 2004.
From that day forward, every inch of our house has been renovated. We even redesigned the floor plan of the front portion in order to make a larger master suite with a beautiful bathroom and walk-in closet (large closets are not common in old farm homes, for obvious reasons). This house was built new from the inside out. All new electrical, all new plumbing, all new flooring, new walls, new everything!
It was a crazy and intense project, that Nick did 95% of on his very own. From it our love for home renovation continues to grow. We had many arguments and our patience for one another was constantly tested. From this home project our marriage grew stronger and Guehne-Made was formed. This home has prepared us to not only be compassionate, but purpose-driven & integrity based, to our clients.

[My favorite room to relax. The master bedroom. The walls are Benjamin Moore Forget-Me-Not with Benjamin Moore Lambskin on the ceiling.]
[The mirror is from a local antique store. The headboard and nightstands were custom built by Nick & available in our Esty shop. The nightstands were painted the same color as the walls. The clawfoot tub was refurbished by a local man. The painting above the tub is from a shop in Florida called Exit Art.]
[A painting by me on the bookcases Nick built.]
[The XO glitter print is available in our Etsy shop.]
[This chair means so much to me. It used to be in my grandma's master bedroom. I had it reupholstered by Chris Moore out of Kansas City.]
[The vintage angels are treasures from my grandma.]
[The living room ceilings are quite special to us. The wood flooring was actually salvaged from the original floor in our home. They are over 100 years old. Nick sanded each piece and re-stained them before putting them on our ceiling.]
[The beautiful architectural detail in this room was handcrafted by Nick. The bookcases are quite popular.]
[The french doors & transoms between the master bedroom and living room allow all the natural light to flood into each space.]
[Paintings by Wen Guehne]
[I love to have fresh flowers in vases throughout the home. Warm candles make it feel cozy and inviting.]
[A view from the front porch into the master bedroom.]
[The master bath and my favorite place to go after a long day.]
