In May 2017, the famous Teen Mom couple, Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Baltierra purchased a four-bedroom, two-bathroom historic octagon-shaped farmhouse for $220,000. The house was built in 1869 by a retired Great Lakes sailor named George Smith. From the observation deck you can see Lake Huron, four miles away. Surrounding the house is 240 acres of farmland which was once used to raise and breed champion race horses. However, in present day, it has become a home to the Baltierra family and their furry animals.
Renovating 160 Years Later
Aged 160 years, it was only fitting to do some reconstruction on the home when they moved in. Tyler, being a house flipper himself, renovated most of the farmhouse's interior and exterior. Walls were torn down, bathrooms were gutted and the entire kitchen was re-done.
On the exterior, the dad of three changed the siding of the home from white to blue and also built a wrap-around porch.
He completed the kitchen with wood cabinets, a white brick backsplash, granite countertops and blue walls. The dining room was also completed with a fireplace from France.
He also re-tiled the bathroom with different shaped tiles for the walls and floor in black and white.
It took about two years for them to fully do everything.
