We also live in a timber clad house made from an unusual collection of acquired and salvaged materials built by a quirky Swedish couple. We had a similar sense that it would suit our eclectic style and because it was too hard to resist, we brought it. It is inspiring to see how you have made your quirky house a cosy family home and how you view both the features and flaws as part of it's uniqueness. My plan is to continue repurposing, recycling and using preloved furnishings and I love the idea that the next trend is to learn to learn to live with less, and more economically and I hope more people embrace it. It is wonderful seeing "real" homes like yours featured on Houzz.
