About this project

This is "Millstone Manor". This historic, 5,000 sq ft home was built in 1904 and has been in the Painter family since 1983. Since 2005 the house has been empty, (besides the occasional renter), and has fallen into disrepair. The house is complete with a few secret doors and bookcases that reveal hidden rooms. The original wood floors have withstood the last 113 years, and all the windows are original flotation glass.

Our dream for this home is to renovate and restore it, along with opening "Millstone Manor Bed & Breakfast". This beautiful B&B will be a wonderful addition to the historic aspect of Pawnee, and allow anyone to book a stay and enjoy its beauty. We would also love to open a Millstone Microbrewery separately. We can't wait to get this project underway and begin the restoration.

Feel free to share our page or share your memories about this home! We appreciate everyone's support and excitement!

Risks and challenges

The obvious challenges of restoring an old home can be intimidating. Fortunately, my entire family is well equipped in skill and experience to take on this massive project!
We will have to deal with earthquake damage from the large quake that hit Pawnee last year. Thankfully the damage the house took is fixable.
A small portion of the house is going to need to be lifted completely to level it with the rest of the home.
