Randi + Dave: Towanda, IL
Randi + Dave first spotted their 6,000 sqft mansion, Duncan Manor – an Italianate beauty rising dramatically out of the center of a field – on our website. They happened to be at a wedding nearby and drove by the house, and exactly month (and one BIG leap of faith) later, they had left their tiny Denver apartment for a new life on the farm. After spending months camping on the porch, they were finally able to move inside, where their restoration adventures continue.
Follow along with their inspiring journey on Season 1 of Cheap Old Houses on HGTV or Discovery+ or on their instagram page @duncanmanor
