About Sherman and Joy Schlichting
We are life-long residents of this area. Joy was raised on this family farm and still has relatives nearby. We are both descended from the German immigrants who came to this area in the mid 1800's. We have always felt called to help restore architectural treasures of the past. Our two sons share our passion and helped to save this home.
Sherman and Joy Schlichting purchased this house in 2010
Why Sherman and Joy Schlichting chose Seguin
This house sat on property that was slated for future development and likely would have been destroyed. In 2010 we purchased the house and moved it to the family farm where we have 3 other vacation rentals. After 4 years of hard work the restoration was completed and the house was ready for guests. We have tried to preserve much of the original craftsmanship and charm. The house still has all the original handmade doors and windows. Reclaimed pine floors are throughout the house. The unique wood trim is a good example of the artistic abilities and the attention to detail of German artisans of the period. When you stay in this house you will have a real appreciation for the work that had to be done to build a home in this area in 1860.
What makes this house unique
When we first saw this house it was in an advanced state of disrepair. But even in this condition we could see the potential. The house had been untouched since about 1950. There was no electricity or plumbing in the house. But this afforded us the chance to 'start from scratch' to install modern amenities. All the original doors, windows, and pine flooring have been restored. We reconstructed the porch to give guests a good place to relax and visit. We have tried to furnish the house with 'old things', but at same time make it comfortable and useable - not like a museum.
