          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: Hi there! I’m an internet marketer by day, social media freak by night, and a big-time junker and decorator! I build websites and apps, have a great Aussie Doodle dog named Blossom, and am in a long-term, on-going love-affair with the Coast. When not on the Coast, I live on a 90 acre farm in Illinois (and having been raised on a farm . . . I know how to “farm like a girl!”). It is the memory of my 25 year old nephew Bryce that inspires me for each of my projects including this most recent one -- Le Shabby Chateau.

          Why the Owner Chose Gulfport:
          I bought Le Shabby Chateau in September 2006 after being recruited to the area as a top level marketing executive. She was a bit of a wreck having just weathered Hurricane Katrina less than a year earlier. Nonetheless, the charm and love within Her walls was obvious from the moment I walked inside. I restored Her and made her my year round home until 2011 when family illness brought me back to Southern Illinois. It wasn't until June 2013 that I decided to share Le Shabby Chateau with the world. See the full story on Her Facebook page, Le Shabby Chateau.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Le Shabby Chateau had 3 feet of water in her during Hurricane Katrina, and at the time I purchased Her, she still was a mess! Nonetheless, I saw how, with just a bit of tender-loving care, She could become the beauty that I knew She deserved to be. I fell in love with Her old woodwork and shabby kitchen. I knew She had a lot of strength within her walls and the task of re-inventing Her beauty was exactly the healing process that I needed both the first time I did it, and the second time around.
