The Gadd Home
Tucked away in the woods of Lookout Mountain is Jason and Mary Gadd’s rustic retreat. This 1960s ranch home-turned-craftsman is a labor of love that offers up all of the charm that comes with lodge living.
“Our heart and soul went into this home for 18 months,” recalls Mary as she reflects on the year-and-a-half-long renovation. “We love the area and were looking to upgrade our home. The view at this property is just beautiful, and we really liked the layout. The house had such good bones, so we decided to go for it.”
That’s not to say turning this house into a home came easily. The entirety of the electrical wiring had to be replaced, and the Gadds also decided to open up several spaces throughout the home. The result of all the hard work is a rustic mountain oasis that lends itself well to relaxation and entertaining, both of which are priorities for the Gadds.
