DeeAnn’s old cabin used to be a general store
Before she found it and turned it into a house - and long after the original store had served its last customer and closed for good - the handsome old structure had been, of all things, a beauty shop.
Today it's outfitted with the same comforts and conveniences you'd find in any modern home.
But you'd never know it because Deeann has cleverly hidden everything from the air conditioner and refrigerator to the microwave oven and TV in cabinets or behind swinging doors.
Stepping inside, it's easy to get the impression you've traveled back in time because the restored grocery is authentic very nearly to the board and nail.
The floors are original hardwoods. And the "horizonatally beaded," wood-stripped walls are the same ones that construction workers meticulously tacked up in 1910.
