Exceptionally Eclectic Tour – Cozy Bungalow Tour


One look at Megan of Restoring the Roost‘s 1917 bungalow tour and you can see it’s very special.

So special that the former owners actually moved the bungalow from it’s former location and nestled it onto a new brick foundation in the woods of Carolina.

Megan and her hubs share their space with a small flock of of chickens (each named for a different herb)!

A stained glass transom is just one of the many very cool features of the house.

Of course there has to be a rooster inside too.

Does it get any better than a fireplace in the dining room …

One of Megan’s many fabulous makeovers include this doorknob shelf – with a collection of vintage aprons.

She’s got talent – she even shows us how to cane a chair!

One of the best parts of the house is this porch made for sipping lemonade …

I have the urge for farm fresh eggs before I head out and build my own coop.

Probably not so I’ll just stop by Megan’s at Restoring the Roost whenever I want to see what the flock is up to.

  5. Hi Kelly,
    Thank you so much for the wonderful feature and home tour! I am so excited to be a part of the Eclectically Vintage series on your blog!

  6. I love this home, especially the transoms! Thanks for sharing with us! Blessings, Tammy

  7. This is great! (But in the Carolinas, she’d be sipping tea, not lemonade. Probably. Or in my case, beer. But I’m Polish.)

  8. What a beautiful home nestled in the woods of Carolina. My daughter just moved to North Carolina and loves it. I sure enjoyed the tour of your beautiful home. hugs ~lynne ~

  9. Megan’s home is just beautiful…so filled with warm charm and very cozy. Thanks for the tour, I have to visit her blog!


  10. Kelly … thanks for sharing this lovely home. I so enjoyed it and see an idea for a problem I have in one bathroom.

  11. … exhale …. Wow, that bungalow spoke to an until now unknown desire of mine for a cottage. Lovely. And just from the perspective of someone transplanted to the south, it most likely would be **super sweet** tea or hard lemonade sipped on the porch in the afternoon. Love those vintage chairs on the porch by the way, and those arches, oh my.

  12. Such a cozy little home. Love that it’s sitting in the woods… very nicely done!
    heading on over to read more.


  13. I’ve been following Megan’s blog for a while now, so I was happy to see her featured here! I love all the photos, especially the one of the iron gate interior door. And I didn’t know they moved their house – so awesome! I wish we could have done that with our old place!

  14. What a beautiful, cozy bungalow full of character! And, of course, I’m jealous of the view … and the chickens. Well, maybe not the chickens exactly, but the fresh eggs for sure :) I’ll have to go check out Megan’s blog. I’m loving her style!

  15. That is one amazingly beautiful home! Makes me ready to get more of our projects finished up around here!

  16. So many unique touches to that lovely home! The iron gate was gorgeous and unexpected. I liked it!! Those copper bottom pots were beauties too. Great tour. So much charm!!!!

  17. Laura @ the shorehouse says:

    What a lovely home…any home with thrifty personal touches is aces in my book. And I love the iron gate! What a fantastic idea. I used one as a headboard once, but this is beyond fab.

  18. I can see why they moved it with them … so charming! I love the beautiful details and their decor is fabulous … love the doorknob shelf and, the gate is awesome!
