Earlier this year our family decided that we needed to uproot ourselves from our beloved Seattle and move to the MIDDLE OF NOWHERE.  In October we left our first home, a modern townhouse in the city.  We drove and drove and drove some more.  We landed in a log house that sits in the middle of 20 or so acres of apple orchards.  John Henry, our three year old son, christened it the "Apple House" right from the start.

The Apple House needed more than a little bit of work.  The Wrights are the family for the job!  We will be working with our land lord (yes, we are renting, we aren't sure we want to stay in the middle of nowhere forever) to revive this long neglected, but once well loved, home to a comfortable and cozy state.  Our goal is to make it fit for an energetic family and a retreat for the friends and family we must bribe to make the long long drive to visit us.

Please join us as we chronicle this transformation, here on Apple House Revival.


  1. Congrats on starting the new blog! Looking forward to reading all the details.

  2. Can't wait for all the posts, pictures, stories, and tutorials!

  3. When I was a little girl, we also lived in an "apple house". It was on a farm in southern Indiana, and was actually used to store the apples. When my (VERY) young parents rented it, one of the things they did was tear down the old wallpaper. My mom said the walls were imbued with the scent of apples. Thanks for bringing back good memories!
