Behind The Scenes: H&H Editor Morgan Michener’s Woodsy Cabin Makeover

Senior editor Morgan Michener shares an inside look at how she took her family cabin from rugged to rustic and refined, while respecting its rural roots.

This cabin was a labor of love. It used to belong to my mother-in-law, until she was ready to sell and the perfect buyers were right under her nose. My husband Chris and I wanted a place where we could escape Toronto on the weekends with our two kids, Jack and Phoebe. So we bought it in late summer and had a lot of work to do — fixing the roof, drilling a well, installing a wood stove. Once the important things were complete, we chipped away at interior projects over the winter. Read on for a behind-the-scenes look at the project from start to finish.
