Historic Charm Mixes Modern Comfort in This Fixer to Fabulous Family Home

When a home has been in the family for five generations, it has lots of stories to tell – but it’s all too easy for it to stay stuck in the past. Brittany and Doug Brewer’s 19th-century home has been in the family since 1926, and decades of renos and re-touches created a mish-mash of styles that wasn’t working for the couple and their young children. Using their signature creativity and resourcefulness, Dave and Jenny Marrs were up to the task of updating the house with a functional, stylish transformation that suits the home’s current occupants – while still honouring the home’s historic character.
