House Envy

This Huffington Post story about the meticulous restoration of The James Lee House in Memphis, Tennessee popped up in my Facebook feed yesterday and I was blown away by the classic beauty of this 1850's "farmhouse".  The historic home had been empty for fifty years when a couple purchased it from the city for $1 with plans to lovingly restore it and turn it into a bed and breakfast for the public to enjoy.  View more photos on the James Lee House Facebook Page or visit their website to book your stay.
