Bungalow exterior with upper balcony sleeping porch
A visit with a former resident helped Doug and Faith uncover the distinctive brackets on the upper balcony.

Bungalow front porch with vintage furniture
The ample front porch, decked out with furniture from Doug's great-grandmother, encourages friends to linger.

Bungalow ballroom with art tile fireplace
An Arts & Crafts tile fireplace graces one side of the ballroom, surrounded by vintage illustrations from Doug's great uncle.

Dining room with grape-motif stained glass transoms
The refurbished dining room, a hub for family fun, features grape-motif stained-glass transoms, among the many original art glass windows in the home.

Bungalow staircase with restored woodwork
The McDaniels spent hours refurbishing the distinctive woodwork on the staircase, which is stamped with the name of the craftsman, William W. Martin.

Upstairs sleeping porch with wicker loveseat
Faith's grandmother's wicker loveseat graces the upstairs sleeping porch, restored to its original use.

Living room with leaded glass windows
When the McDaniels bought the house, the living room's leaded glass windows were hiding under heavy drapes.

Bathroom with vintage Standard Pembroke bathtub
The Standard Pembroke bathtub was authenticated by a dealer in Los Angeles, who advised the couple not to refinish it in order to preserve its value.

Bungalow butler's pantry
The original built-in butler's pantry provides unique storage.

Bungalow ballroom with French doors and pool table
The McKinney daughters once used the ballroom to host piano recitals for gentlemen law students from the University of Tennessee. The McDaniels often open the French doors to the porch to accommodate large gatherings.

Old black-and-white photo of the bungalow
A copy of Billie McKinney's black-and-white photo of the home, which inspired the sleeping porch discovery, now hangs proudly on a wall in the living room.
