Living The Dream

Carla Emin – Owner/Operator The Green Barn

On this episode of Vintage Home (airing March, 2018)… I will be visiting Carla Emin in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia – Carla is living the proverbial Canadian dream of living in an old house that has been beautifully restored – with a successful business just steps from her back door.

Carla’s house Before & After


Another Before & After – Amazing how a few new shingles and a good paint job can breathe new life into a tired exterior.

I think this old barn is quite possibly the most amazing transformation! This is Carla’s business the Green Barn – she was able to see past the ruinous state of the old barn and bring it back from the brink!

    Came across this post on fb, but then I realized I had visited her business last November when I was there. She has wonderful stuff in that barn!
