Recently remodeled with reclaimed materials and creative design ideas, this home is very open, and a quiet contemplative space. The wooded lot sits on a dead end street and is a great place for couples or family gatherings - less than 15 minutes from Six Flags, just down the road from Labadie, the Hawthorn Inn, and very close to the many wineries and breweries in Augusta and quaint shops in Washington. There is ample parking (RV), and a large space for backyard BBQs, bonfires and gatherings.

The space
This home was originally built in 1970 and sits on almost 2 acres. It is bordered by timber and a small creek to the back. The interior has been completely remodeled using reclaimed lumber from 19th century barns and hand hewn wood structures.

The stone work in the fireplace was original and made of Colorado stone and petrified wood. The other stonework in the living room, dining room and kitchen island is new and constructed of stones from all over Missouri and with some stones from my various travels across the US. The purple stones are many millions of years old and pre-cretaceous granite from the St. Francois Mountains.

The majority of all the photos on the walls are from many hiking and camping trips all over the western US. Additionally, I wrote my first book in this home (Louch) and some of my documentary film was also shot here and much of the narration and editing was done in the home as well.
