When we bought our 1926 farmhouse, in October 2000, Jacob and I knew that restoring it would be a challenge. It had been converted to a duplex, and years of renters had taken a toll, especially on the kitchen. We dove right in, tearing up the vinyl tile floor only to discover it had been installed over a layer of purple carpet. That’s right: tile over carpet! Purple carpet! After that unpleasant surprise, we decided to wait awhile before doing any more work. We eventually knocked down a wall to a bedroom to create a larger, more open plan, but the big renovation was still on hold.
