AU’s Boyes house
While James and Deanna Edwards are clearly at home in the residence they’ve shared for 23 years, much of the furniture and décor actually belong to someone else — previous Anderson University presidents and their families.
‘Our forever house’
Rob and Lana Ranahan were so pleased with their home on Eighth Street that they had completely renovated the kitchen into a chef’s dream. A few short weeks later, they moved to a house that had been abandoned for several years.
Martins’ homey feel
Jeff Martin grew up on a farm and, although he never missed the work linked to such a life, he did find he missed the land. When an opportunity arose to buy a favored home along with 65 surrounding acres, the move from Fortville was easy to make.
A side business is quickly taking over the life of Eric J. Scott as he has officially entered the world of design. Although he has consistently consulted with friends, family and acquaintances on interior design choices since he was 15, he only established EJS Designs four years ago.
A sturdy home
Since Michael and Kenya Long purchased their house a little over a year ago, it has seen many updates and changes. But the most interesting feature has remained the same. Although a visitor could not see traces of it from the outside, the home was originally a log cabin built 200 years ago.
‘Blessed to live here’
When Matt and Libby Manning left Tennessee to settle closer to family, their eyes landed on Anderson. With a strong love of the outdoors, they were careful to choose a home that would suit their needs both inside and out.
Starting the garden
To get a jump on the season and enjoy fresh vegetables sooner, planting in trays can provide healthy sprouts to transfer once spring finally does break.
Wait till spring?
As thoughts turn to spring, homeowners begin thinking about replacing drafty windows. But waiting is really not necessary, according to Charles Surber, sales manager of Surber’s Windows and Doors Inc., in Anderson.
The 10-year plan
Winding down 3½ acres of heavily wooded land is a little gravel road that leads to a lovely home. Near Indiana 9 and Scatterfield Road, the oasis is tucked away in an unexpected spot.
A tranquil home filled with love
When Paula Nevins walked into the family room of a home on the edge of the county, she fell in love. But the home, built in 1974, had not been updated in any way in over 30 years. Paula and her late husband, Michael, had a full-time project ahead of them.
