Paint Historic Waxahachie 2018 - plein air competition.  Best in Show. #waxahachieart #waxahachie #kentbrewer #kentbrewerart #historicwaxahachie #texaslandscapes #pleinair
Yesterday I did a #fridayintroductions post on my personal account and it was a blast, so I thought I'd adapt and do a #saturdaymorning version here with all things related to the house!

1. We originally were going to make an offer on a completely different house in town (and completely different style) when at the last minute we decided to take a quick look at this one "just to rule it out" in our due diligence. When a couple and their agent showed up while we were waiting outside, I got oddly defensive. I should have known then this was "our house" but after a single walk through we knew it was meant to be. We contracted same day!

2. While the house was built according to records in 1900, an investor bought it ~3 years ago and "renovated" it. He did the expensive stuff (foundation level, new plumbing, electrical, and HVAC) but also unfortunately took out all of the gorgeous  characteristics of a Folk Victorian. We are slowly restoring it and putting as much back in as possible. It's great because our home is fully functional, but a bummer because it takes time and attention to detail to merge historic accuracy with current available products. We are trying to use as many reclaimed products as possible but we are also on a budget.

3. My biggest pet peeve with the house currently is what is our "front porch." It's really a deck, and I can't WAIT to replace it with a historically accurate porch with turned columns and true floorboards. I wanted to do it immediately after painting the exterior but after a little research decided we will actually submit our plans for approval to the city's historical commission. If they are accepted and we complete the project accordingly, we get a tax offset on next year's taxes so we are definitely waiting to do that! I love that this town rewards the restoration of historic structures!

What else would you like to know?! I've put up the "Ask a Question" feature in the stories- send them our way! 📸 @charityclaytonphotography

Throwback Thursday. A watercolor painted en plein air about 6 years ago. This metal building was demolished recently and replaced with the Ellis County Elections Building. It was a blacksmith shop for many years. I painted this from the top of the parking garage across the street. Won Best in Show -Paint Historic Waxahachie. This painting is available.

The magic of this town isn't in just the architecture, its also in the people. So thrilled to support one of our neighbors who is an incredibly gifted artist by bringing home this stunning cross section of pen and ink illustrations of homes across #waxahachie! .

This fluffy face is a big fan of her blue velvet dog bed, and we are an even bigger fan of our hardwood floors. Lucky for us, there isn't a single room in our house that has carpet. When you have a 85 lb. lab/chow that sheds a double coat all year long, hardwoods are a godsend!

Grateful to live in a city, a state, and a nation where we experience the freedoms that make up the American Dream. Those freedoms have been protected at a cost- may we all sit back and remember those who selflessly gave their all so that the sun could shine down on a free and protected United States of America.
