True Tales From Old Houses

Sep 25, 2023

In this episode, Stacy and Daniel continue their deep dive into floor restoration by chatting with Rob Cagnetta from Sutherland Welles. Rob explains why tung oil is a good choice for floor refinishing, how it is made, and how Sutherland Welles makes their products smell so good. 

Later, Stacy and Daniel have a conversation with designer and preservationist Reagan Leslie. Reagan is taking Peoria, Illinois, by storm with her unstoppable drive to improve housing within her community and preserve old homes. Reagan was also part of season one of Cheap Old Houses on HGTV, and she recently bought a house from the newly formed Peoria land bank.
