the backhouse

In every home, there is that shared space where things happen. This space can go by many names and can be many things to each family member... a play room for toddlers, a hangout for teens, a quiet place for yoga or a home office for mom and dad.  The space where things happen in our home is always transforming, but the one constant has been the name:  the backhouse.  A stand-alone building steps away from our main house, we believe the backhouse was originally built as a four-car garage conversion in the early 1960’s. It has concrete floors & brick walls complete with a chilly draft and it’s certainly nothing fancy. But love, light and now fragrance fill the space.  The backhouse is where we hand pour our candles in small batches and package them for you and your home...and thus the name was born!
