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.
