Meet Milk Moon House

We are a family of craftsmen and artisans in a little studio located in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in Louisville, TN.   We are in the business of restoration and bringing light to peoples' lives through their living and work space. We are creating cherished furniture and art pieces for homes, families, and businesses interested in surrounding themselves with simple beauty and purpose.  We take old, beat-up, outdated or relatively unlovable furniture and make it really, really good-looking.   We have an absolute blast working with folks' specific desires for custom art pieces and wall decor, as well.  It may be a song lyric, poetry/scripture verse, or image that just lights them up. Having a daily reminder that brings a smile to your face or helps you to take a deep, calming breath . . . that's what we are here for. 

The Milk Moon House Story

Jo has always been drawn to the arts and getting her hands dirty in general. Upon starting a family and leaving her former role in public relations, it became clear that this desire to create was finding its way into nearly every part her life. Along with husband Peter, raising their children always looked a little like the craft tent at the summer camp that never ended. Always a scrounger, Jo could always be found bringing home raggedy old furniture pieces or random stacks of barnwood to make into something new. 

Soon, word got out.

Clients started sending more and more ideas and Jo kept turning those ideas into reality. Soon, bigger project ideas started coming in and more help was needed. Enter Mr. Milk Moon House himself, Jo's husband Peter.

Building had always made sense to Peter, and had been mentored by some of the best. Soon they were able to pair the worlds of form and function in very cool ways and Milk Moon House was born.

Word of mouth of quality work, fair price-point and basic kindness became the primary form of "advertising" for Milk Moon House,  and still remains today.

 Jo is head artisan/craftsman, supported and complimented by head builder and the muscle of the operation, her husband Peter.  Sophia and Hunter can usually be found running around the property somewhere or hugging one of their chickens longer than they would like.

The "milk moon" is the full moon of May.  It's the moon of abundance, growth, and provision.  Crops boom, new life abounds, and the blank canvas of the world is ready to be colorful once again.  We love it all, my friend.  And we pray all of it for each of you that we have the honor to work for and with.
