FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:
Jim & Kathy Haney Home | 9580 E Townline Road
The lower level, a replicated log cabin, built by Jim, also includes a cozy wood burning stove. An awe inspiring “barn” awaits you near the house. It is sided with 100 year old barn wood from the original structure which stood on the property when it was purchased. Jim will be on hand to show you his “workshop/museum” of antique tools and beer paraphernalia, but it is a working wood shop. Be sure to notice the 1945 Harley Davidson motorcycle displayed near the entrance.
Diane Scharrer Home | 360 S Franklin St
Her living, dining and kitchen areas are part of an open floor plan with various ceiling details to differentiate between them. In addition to guest bedrooms on the second floor, her recent renovation took place in the lower level to become a multi-use suite for more guests. Diane displays her holiday treasures throughout her home. This is the second time her home has been featured on the Holiday Home Tour.
Gary and Gay Scharrer | 352 S Franklin Street
They decided to start new construction while maintaining the charming exterior since their location is in the historic district of Frankenmuth. Step inside this 21st century modern home to see the dining room which leads into the heart of the home where two black columns, original to the former house, separates the kitchen from the family room. In the upper level are two en suite bedrooms, a media room and a small kitchenette/bar area. The lower level houses a kitchen/bar, an en suite guest room, Gary's home office and is outfitted with a large screen television.
Grandpa Tiny's Farm | 7775 Weiss Street
Chuck & Judy Nemec | 619 W Tuscola Street
JoAnn Crary | 8 Trillium Court
For a number of years JoAnn has served on a national board based in Washington D.C., and receives the annual White House ornament as a gift for her service. The ornaments are displayed in her home office.
