editor’s note

Rustic Charm Last summer, one of my contributors asked me, “Have you ever done a story on barns converted into cozy living spaces?” Marina Davalos thought of the idea after talking to one of her friends from high school, Tara Kiusalas, who grew up in a barn that her parents converted into a home. “It was like ‘Little House on the Prairie,’” says Tara, the daughter of West Barnstable Tables owner Dick Kiusalas. “A Tale of Two Barns,” which features the charming West Barnstable barn and a beloved one in Harwich, highlights the restoration process and what compelled the homeowners to save the structures. After reading this article, I’d love to live in a restored barn. These spaces look so calming and relaxing—the perfect way to unplug. The barn theme fits nicely with “Down on the Farm,” which highlights three farms in Sandwich, Barnstable and Brewster. Although the farms range in size, location and products, they all have one thing in common— they are owned by hard-working, passionate farmers. Two companion pieces highlight the Lower Cape Children’s Garden in Brewster and Pizza Barbone’s rooftop garden, which inspires the restaurant’s daily specials. Speaking of specials, I had the opportunity to check out a new Southern-inspired restaurant in South Yarmouth. Formerly the location of the short-lived Chef Vagabond, Y’all’s Wicked Kitchen on Route 28 brings a fresh, welcoming vibe to the breakfast and lunch scene. Owners Jason and Sara Grambach started working on the concept more than a year ago and they are dedicated to bringing you delicious, quality food with a Southern flair. Read more about them and their new venture in the restaurant profile, “Wicked Good.” For the story “A Dream Assignment,” I sat down with Willowbend’s head gardener, Ari Maravel, to discuss his new book, “Gardens of Willowbend.” We talked over lunch about how he went from a journalist digging for facts to digging in the dirt at a beautiful country club in Mashpee. While working on the 107-page book, Maravel took more than 2,000 photos over two years to capture the changing colors and lush vistas. After our chat and reading his book, I am more inspired than ever to brighten up my landscaping this spring.

A suitcase, an amp, pillows, a guitar and camping light are some of the items that local singer Jordan Renzi packed in her Subaru Forester for her 12-city cross-country tour.

Singer-songwriter Jordan Renzi of Orleans had always dreamed of driving cross-country and exploring the U.S., so she mapped out her own 12-city solo tour, which kicked off Feb. 24 in Charleston, South Carolina. Before hitting the road, Renzi packed her Subaru Forester with her guitar, microphone, an amp, a tent, camping stove, clothes and a few books. “I’ve been craving the freedom and unattached feeling of being on the road and living super light for an extended period of time,” says Renzi, who is also traveling to Los Angeles, San Diego and Portland, Oregon. “I’ve never taken my music too far beyond the boundaries of Cape Cod, which is something 10

CAPE COD MAGAZINE

I’ve been looking forward to for a long time.” Renzi, who performed at Boston Mayor Marty Walsh’s inaugural gala at the Hynes Convention Center in 2014 and plays regularly at the Harvest Gallery Wine Bar in Dennis, says she is playing small venues while on tour—coffee shops, bars and house concerts. “I’m looking forward to new places, new faces and a little adventure,” says Renzi. She wraps up her tour of bluesy-soul music on April 29 in Asheville, North Carolina, and her debut full-length album, “A Bird That I Knew,” comes out in June. —Lisa Leigh Connors Jordanrenzi.com

Helping the Homeless, One Stitch at a Time For the third year in a row, A Great Yarn in Chatham is teaming up with the Housing Assistance Corporation of Cape Cod to make blankets for the Cape’s homeless population. Last year, more than 250 individuals participated in the Knit-a-Thon, knitting 155 blankets for the homeless. All of the blankets and 100 percent of the donations—more than $6,000 was raised last year—are distributed to shelters in Hyannis. After reading about homelessness on Cape Cod and how some people were living in the woods with nothing to keep them warm, A Great Yarn co-owner Mary Weishaar was inspired to start the Knit-a-Thon in the winter of 2016. Here’s how it works: Participants are asked to knit or crochet long panels, about 1 foot wide and 6 feet long, which

are then sewn together and turned into blankets by the shop’s staff. Four panels make a blanket. “The panels can be made by any knitter, even a novice knitter, which means that anyone can participate,” says A Great Yarn co-owner Ron Weishaar, who says he is always impressed by the colorful and vibrant blankets. “We have even had a number of high school students participate in the event.” —Lisa Leigh Connors

The Knit-a-Thon started in February and runs through April 30. A Great Yarn, 894 Main St., Chatham, agreatyarn.com. If interested in participating, email info@ agreatyarn.com or call 508-348-5605.

From left, counterclockwise: A completed blanket, made from four panels; a knitting group from Falmouth; and a woman from Connecticut, pictured with A Great Yarn co-owner Mary Weishaar, learned to knit on YouTube so she could participate in the annual Knit-a-Thon event.

Making History “Timeless” (Oro Editions), by Patrick Ahearn, 316 pages, $60

GREG PREMRU PHOTOGRAPHY

In his new book, “Timeless,” architect Patrick Ahearn takes readers on a tour of 18 homes he designed over his 45-year career, including on Martha’s Vineyard, Chatham and Osterville. He explains how he applies the greater-good theory to each of his projects by honoring the past and looking toward the future. He believes that architecture has the power to improve lives, increase happiness and encourage friendly interactions. We couldn’t agree more! Here are some dream homes and beautiful spaces featured in the book:

Patrick Ahearn reclaimed and refinished materials during the restoration of the Captain Rufus Pease House in Edgartown, also known as the Yellow House. In the kitchen, Ahearn preserved the tiny door—now in the middle of the blue backsplash tile—connecting the kitchen to the mudroom. Historically, the cook would have used it to see who was arriving at the home’s service entrance. The entryway, with its 1838 floors and balustrade, transports visitors back in time.

The design of this Shore Road home in Chatham recreates and significantly expands a 1910 shingle-style-gable residence that once stood on its site. Preserving the building proved impossible, but Ahearn’s team honored its history with a new home that imagined a double-gabled version of the original.

This Osterville double-height great room, once dark and inward facing, now features preserved and lightened woodwork. An interior window lets in sun from an upstairs bedroom and French doors connect the space to the outdoors. capecodmagazine.com

A pergola outside this Edgartown pool cabana provides partial shade to a casual dining area, smoothing the transition from the building’s interiors to the sun-bathed pool terrace, fire pit seating area and water views.

SHOPtalk!

Chatting with Carole King Owner of Porter & Mags

When did you open Porter & Mags? June 2013, in Dennis Port. I had previously owned stores in Weston and South Egremont, Massachusetts, in the Berkshires. Is there a special meaning behind the name? One of my closest friends in college was also named Carol. Carol and Carole was too confusing, so all of our friends called us “Porter & Mags,” versions of our last names (my maiden name is Maghery). She and her husband were very supportive when I relocated to the Cape from the Berkshires five years ago, so naming the business after our college nicknames was my way of saying “thank you” to them. What do you sell in your shop? Furniture, decorative accessories, unusual lamps, artwork, textiles, area rugs and gifts. In addition to our ready-made products, we offer customers the opportunity to order custom versions of our products. We always have more than 300 decorative pillows in stock, a large selection of textiles from all over the world—throws in alpaca, cotton, cashmere, bamboo and mohair—and an ever-changing collection of small, one-of-a-kind accent pieces that add just the right finishing touch to any space. Do you offer interior design services as well? Yes. I founded Details, Inc., the interior design arm of our business, in 1981 in Boston. We are a full-service residential design firm. We’ve done extensive projects all over the U.S. (detailsinteriorsinc.com).

THEN & NOW •••

Preserving Old East Mill BY AMANDA WASTROM Originally built in Orleans in 1800, the Old East Mill is a “smock” mill, so named for its dress-like shape. It was a Flemish design commonly used in England. Mills, both water and wind powered, revolutionized 19th-century life for Cape Codders, creating industrious growth in saltmaking and agriculture. This mill spent its first 70 years grinding wheat, corn, rye, barley and salt for local use and trade. By the late 19th century, cheaper flour imported from the Midwest forced many Cape Cod mills, including this one, into retirement.

For its next 100 years, subsequent owners worked hard to preserve the mill’s original machinery, stones and wooden structure. In the late 1960s, J.K. Lilly III, founder of Heritage Museums & Gardens, purchased the mill for the museum. To make the 32-mile trip from Orleans to Sandwich, the mill was cut into four sections and traveled down Route 6A by truck and trailer. The trip took 10 days, as the crew had to stop to raise every power line out of the way. Over its 200-plus years, the Old East Mill has survived storm damage, insect infestations and the wear and tear of time. Today, it is showing its age. Heritage Museums & Gardens is working to raise funds to construct four new vanes. For more information, go to heritagemuseumsandgardens.org. Amanda Wastrom is assistant curator at Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich. 18

Artist Michelle Amaral painted this moon image on a tabletop. Amaral says she enjoys painting on everything from furniture and walls to old doors and slabs of slate.

Animal Instinct Inside the world of Osterville artist Michelle Amaral BY MARINA DAVALOS 28

CAPE COD MAGAZINE

Not a day goes by that Michelle Amaral isn’t painting exotic wildlife. The Osterville-based artist paints zebras and giant koi fish on old doors, and she recently started memorializing beloved pets who have passed. Amaral shares a cottage with her Pekingese, Pi, and her ferret, Baby Girl. “I love being able to do [pet memorials] for people and to see their reactions—especially when I can capture the eyes.” Amaral has been drawing and painting animals since the age of five and studied painting and decoAPRIL 2018

ARTIST PROFILE

Michelle Amaral is known for painting wildlife, including owls and zebras.

rating during the 1980s at Bourne’s Upper Cape Regional Technical High School, where she also got experience painting murals. “Back then, I was just painting and giving my paintings away to friends,” says Amaral. In her early 20s, a friend commissioned a mural for her daughter’s bedroom. Word spread of her talent and, for example, the owners of Sundancer’s restaurant in West Dennis commissioned her to paint murals that are still there today. “I’ve done a lot of murals and children’s nurseries,” says Amaral. “In the ’90s, I got into faux finishing, which was all the rage back then. That took my work to Boston, New York and Florida.” Amaral often gets repeat customers at different stages of their lives. “Clients would get married, have kids, and say, ‘Oh, let’s hire Michelle to paint this,’” she says. Amaral likes to paint on pretty much anything– furniture, doors or slabs of slate. While a bartender for many years on the Cape, Amaral often showed her art at the venues where she capecodmagazine.com

worked. “A big part of my art was doing trunk shows in restaurants,” she says. Amaral has since painted for numerous well-known Cape establishments, including  the sign and awning in front of the Foxhole in Osterville,  the  faux finish in the Eclectic Café in Hyannis, and she even painted the mural in the children’s play area in the waiting room at Hyannis Honda’s service center. “Michelle’s talented, she’s artistic and her pieces are unique,” says Centerville resident and longtime friend Dennis Aceto, who over the years has commissioned Amaral to paint items in his home, including furniture and a faux finish on a living room wall. Most recently, Amaral repurposed an old metal sign that used to hang at Aceto’s grandfather’s store in East Cambridge. She transformed the sign by painting a masterful scene of a humpback whale breaching out of the water, and it now hangs in Aceto’s living room. “I love that I can repurpose something that’s sentimental to someone,” says Amaral.

Amaral recently started memorializing beloved pets who have passed. At far right, Amaral repurposed an old metal sign by painting a humpback whale breaching out of the water. It hangs on a faux finish wall painted by Amaral.

Five years ago, Amaral was diagnosed with breast cancer. She subsequently gave up drinking. “With over two and a half years of sobriety under my belt, my art is alive and thriving more than ever,” says the cancer survivor. Amaral puts on several art shows a year throughout the Cape. In April, the Osterville Village Library will host an exhibit of Amaral’s work featuring shadow box found-object art.

Tim Friary

On an overcast July day, Tim Friary, the owner of Cape Cod Organic Farm in Barnstable, is busy overseeing his summer staff as they gather orders for local restaurants. “You done with the kale? You need onions … get 30 onions,” says Friary, as he continues to pile zucchini on a display at his farm stand, an open-sided wooden shed halfway up a dirt road bordered by rows of crops. For a farmer, especially one with livestock, the work never stops. “I take some time off after Christmas (his farm sells trees

and wreaths), but if you’re a farmer, it’s 365, every year.” Growing up in Taunton, Friary cherished the time he spent on his grandparents’ small farm. So in 1995, after years of working in horticulture and owning a native plant nursery, he began farming for himself—opportune for a stay-at-home single dad with three young children. The farm’s original location was in Cummaquid, and in 2008 he acquired the former Barnstable County Farm on Route 6A, a 100-acre property that includes 50

In 2008, Tim Friary acquired the former Barnstable County Farm on Route 6A, a 100-acre property that includes 50 acres of farmable land. Today, Friary’s Cape Cod Organic Farm sells products at local farmers markets and services local restaurants such as Vers, Spoon and Seed, and Blackfish.

acres of farmable land. “The property needed a lot of attention. Ten years on, it still does,” he says. But he loves the work and speaks with pleasure about spotting wildlife at dawn and dusk and watching his crops grow. In addition to running the Certified Organic Farm, Friary is also the largest organic producer of APRIL 2018 

pork in the state. He raises about 100 heritage breed pigs annually for pork, and trucks his pigs off-Cape to a USDA-certified organic slaughterhouse. He sells chops, ribs and roasts, as well as sweet and hot Italian sausage, bratwurst and kielbasa. Along with bringing his products to farmers markets in Truro, Wellfleet capecodmagazine.com


and Orleans, and servicing restaurants such as Vers, Spoon and Seed and Blackfish, Friary operates a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program. For 19 weeks beginning in late May, paying members can pick up a weekly box of freshly harvested organic produce. “A box might have Swiss chard, beets, garlic, potatoes, strawberries, beans, herbs or flowers,” says Friary. “We try to make sure the value of the produce is 15 to 20 percent over the membership cost.” Through 20 years of farming on Cape Cod, Friary has made deep connections. Cape Cod Organic Farm regularly donates to the Cape Cod Hunger Network and has won awards for being a socially responsible business. “We like being part of the community and offering high-quality products,” says Friary, who is also proud of having always grown organic produce. “My grandparents didn’t use chemicals, and I wouldn’t do it any other way. It’s just the way I grew up.” 3675 Main St. (Route 6A) Barnstable, 508-362-3573 capecodorganicfarm.org

Their nuptials field now serves as one of their pick-yourown apple orchards, a popular new program for the 102-year-old property located in Sandwich on Route 6A that was founded by Crowell’s grandfather and great-uncle in 1916. Young Paul always wanted to be a farmer. “I started off picking peas and beans as a kid, working through all the jobs so I’d know how to do them,” says Crowell, who lives with his family on the 40-acre property. His father, Howard, is still active on the farm, while his sister, Jean (who also began working the fields when she was very young), and Paul’s son, Jason, both do whatever needs to be done: planting, picking, sorting and selling.

“I run my warm pies down to the stand and they fly off the trays,” says Ellen Crowell. At Crow Farm, visitors can also pick their own apples.

Crowell’s wife, Ellen, who was not born on Cape Cod, calls herself the “summer girl who never went home.” With a background in the restaurant business, she took on the role of baker, inheriting recipes from her mother-inlaw, Judy, and now produces between 20 and 40 pies a day when the farm stand is open. “I make strawberry rhubarb, peach, blueberry, apple,” says Ellen. “I run my warm pies down to the stand and they fly off the trays.” Crowell encourages everyone on the farm to share ideas. Their newly

launched CSA was suggested by one of their farm workers, and his son spearheaded the pick-your-own program. “The secret is to have people smarter than you work for you,” he says. He also diversifies his crops. Crow Farm produces a variety of flowers, herbs, fruits and vegetables, including corn and 15 varieties of apples in orchards, fields and greenhouses. As he traverses the farm, he meets with a crew planting strawberries for next season. It’s a challenge to gauge how many years the plants will produce, and while

this year has been rainy, other years have required 14 hours a day of irrigation. “I like to be outdoors though, “he says. “I like growing things and meeting people.” For Crowell, customers have become friends, and the rest of the farming community on the Cape are good colleagues. “It’s a pretty tight-knit group. You help each other out.” Back up on the apple orchard where he said “I do” years ago, Crowell gazes across his land to Cape Cod Bay. It’s a beautiful vista, one that not many pickyour-own farms can offer. “Families come here, pick apples, take pictures, hang out on the hay bales,” he says, smiling. “People love it.”

Another Cape Cod family is just starting their farming tradition up the road in Brewster at Punkhorn Farm, located in the Punkhorn Parklands. With just over 3/4 of an acre being utilized so far, farm manager Dani DeRuyter has big plans for the project she and her two brothers first opened in 2015. Her parents had invested in the 14-acre property in the mid-’80s as their family home, but things really kicked off when DeRuyter moved back to the Cape from California, where she had learned permaculture farming. “It’s about using patterns in nature and replicating them 46

for sustainability and livelihood,” she says. Her brothers Ben and Nick, who both live on the property with their families, cleared land, mulched and composted before DeRuyter moved back East. “We had this dream of raising all our kids together on our small farm.” Both brothers have other jobs, but continue to assist whenever needed. “Ben is the ‘CFO’ of Punkhorn,” says DeRuyter. “Nick is land management, which means he uses all the heavy machinery.” “We started growing with only 1/16 of an acre, then I began working with chefs of small specialty restaurants such as Sunbird and Clean Slate,” says DeRuyter. This past summer, DeRuyter started selling at farmers markets in Brewster and Provincetown. Dabbling in both helps DeRuyter manage her inventory; if things don’t sell at the markets, she can call chefs who are happy to take the surplus. “It inspires me when chefs come to the farm and walk around with me,” she says. “I learn so much from them.” She also relishes the experience of selling to the public, hearing stories from return customers of what they made with her produce. “I try to bring one crazy crop each time—like purple capecodmagazine.com

kohlrabi—and bring recipes,” she says. “People are psyched, and I get to reintroduce amazing food to them. It’s an awesome circle of learning and sharing.” DeRuyter, who does all the designing and managing of the farm, has squeezed quite a bit into their small footprint. She grows kale, heirloom tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, chard, beets, carrots, cauliflower, parsley, cilantro, dill and lots of flowers. “Some are edible, like nasturtiums, but I have others just for the birds and the bees.” Tall stalks of sunflowers give birds a perch from which they can hunt bugs, which is part of DeRuyter’s system of using plants to attract or deter. “This is a shared ecosystem. You put it in place and it thrives and flourishes on its own.” She envisions her new large barn as a location for events, with a commercial kitchen in which to make jams and pesto from her farm produce. “Punkhorn has grown a little every year, “she says. “My background in permaculture is all about starting small and scaling up as you go. We are getting positive feedback from the ecosystem here, so we feel like we are doing the right thing.”

Pizza Barbone’s Garden: Up on the Rooftop BY VIVIAN SIEMPOS HAIDAS “The garden goes hand in hand with everything we do, including making things from scratch and using whole and fresh ingredients,” says Ali O’Toole, co-owner of Pizza Barbone on Main Street, Hyannis. You won’t see the garden in question where you would usually expect one. It’s on the roof—typical in cities where space is limited, but not so common on the Cape. But when Ali and her husband, Jason O’Toole, decided five years ago that they wanted a garden, the only way to go was up. Jason built eight wooden raised planting beds and added 30 self-watering plastic containers while a crane lifted 18,000 pounds of organic soil onto the roof to begin their growing adventure. “It’s definitely been a learning curve. We have learned by doing,” says Ali. For example, they discovered early on that tomatoes didn’t thrive on the roof due to extreme heat and hungry seagulls. Eventually, they added hoop houses to the roof to prevent pesky birds from snagging fresh produce. Their garden’s yield and variety has increased considerably year to year, and last season, they began composting—an eco-friendly way to nourish their garden. During the April to October growing season, a variety of tomatoes, potatoes, beans, beets, carrots, onions, peppers, parsley, cucumbers and fresh herbs flourish, as well as edible flowers. Much of their harvested vegetables can be found in the restaurant’s daily specials, where Jason creates dishes based on what’s in season. Pizza Barbone’s rooftop garden can be spotted at the back of the building, above Morgan Stanley. Look closely in the spring and summer and you’ll see several plants peeking out above—a little green above the brick and asphalt.

From April to October, Pizza Barbone grows a variety of tomatoes, potatoes, beans, carrots, onions and fresh herbs on a rooftop behind the Hyannis restaurant. capecodmagazine.com

The self-taught gardener Maravel and his wife, Gailanne, moved from Ridgewood, New Jersey, to Sandwich in 1998. After “doing nothing” for two years, Maravel grew restless and answered a local newspaper ad that changed his life. It simply said, “Gardner Wanted.” No location was listed. At Willowbend, he was initially hired to manage the beds on the golf course. “But they didn’t tell us we would have to rake sand traps in the morning!” says Maravel, with a burst of laughter. “But I thought it was perfect because it was great exercise.” After he was promoted to head gardener eight years ago, Maravel made adjustments to save time and money. He turned his attention to shrubs, Japanese maple trees and perennials that bloom for four to five weeks instead of just two (he makes one exception for “Queen of the Prairie,” which features bright pink flowers located in a large, round bed on Willowbend Drive). Early in his career, he bought peat moss to enrich the Cape’s sandy soil, but now relies on the golf course’s compost pile of grass clippings and leaves. He also added more urns to the property—there are now 170—to brighten corners that don’t get much sun. They can be seen outside entrances to the clubhouse, pool, fitness center, Pro Shop and patios. Maravel, who keeps shelves of gardening books at home and reads countless magazines, including two from the U.K., keeps busy as head gardener eight months of the year. As the season kicks into high gear soon, the 4,000 peony-shaped tulips he planted in the fall will start to bloom on May 1. “One of the things you want to convey is joy because people come here to have fun with golf, weddings and parties.

During the restoration process for the sweet, cozy barn at Saturday Farm in Harwich, the owners added a new foundation, wide beams to support the roof and storage space in the rafters.


Old barns abound on the Cape. There’s something special about them that makes us want to keep them here. For this feature, we looked at two—one in West Barnstable and one in Harwich—that have been converted into living spaces. We listened to the families’ heartfelt stories about the process of restoration, barn living and what compelled them to save the structures in the first place.


Cindy Sauers, at right, painted the original barn doors green and added her own whimsical touches—a silhouette of a girl and one of a cat, both painted with glow-in-thedark white paint. Even though Sauers and her husband live in a modern house on the property, Sauers says she spends most of her time in the restored barn.

T

o Cindy Sauers’ dismay, everyone said the barn would have to come down when she and her husband, Harry Eisner, both retired from the corporate world and bought the property they call Saturday Farm in 1997. The main house, an old farmhouse built in the late 1700s by one Captain Baker, was intact, but the walls on the 20 x 20 barn at the back of the property were caving in, and the floor was rotted out, as were the windows, which had vines growing through them. But, says Sauers, “I was in love with it.” Fortunately for Sauers, her architect friend Richard 60

CAPE COD MAGAZINE

Tichnor offered a second opinion about the neglected barn. “He said we could restore it,” says Sauers, “and he drew up the plans.” Tichnor’s design incorporated a storage space in the rafters, and he added wide beams to support the roof. Sauers’ husband, a software-engineer-turned-builder, together with Sauers’ son, Jason Bellamy, did all the construction. “The guys put the whole building on top of sawhorses while they poured a new foundation,” she says. “I was afraid on windy days that the whole thing would blow over.” Eisner managed to salvage pieces of the rotting floor. “Some of the wood is really funky, but I like

it,” he says. The two men put new shingles and a new roof on the barn. They also installed skylights to which Sauers added stained glass panels. Kitchen cabinets were fashioned from the salvaged floorboards and their knobs were once Sauers’ grandmother’s thread spools. Plumbing was added for a bathroom, and there’s a bed made up for friends who come to visit. They painted the original barn doors green, and Sauers applied her own whimsical touches—a silhouette in white of a girl and one of a cat, both painted with glow-in-thedark white paint. Eisner and Bellamy also added glass storm doors that let the light in and keep the weather out when the barn doors are open. capecodmagazine.com

Sauers chronicled the entire seven-month process, taking photos and writing daily in two large scrapbooks. “Every night, I insisted that the guys write about the day,” she says, which, though tired, they diligently did. Before the 1970s, the property had been a blueberry farm, and the barn was used for storage and packing. “There was a square hole cut out in the back of the barn where they sold the blueberries from,” says Sauers. Now the property is Saturday Farm, home to Sauers, Eisner and their pet sheep, Bromley and Jobey, affectionately known as the Baa Boys. The sheep have their own little home outside, but they like to come into the barn from time to time. Sauers grows and cultivates lavender in the gardens and uses the barn as her studio. An artist and herbalist, she likes to paint and make concoctions, such as rose petal oil, organic sunflower oil and lavender sachets. They use the captain’s house as a guesthouse, and they live in a small, modern house, which Eisner built about eight years ago. “But I spend most of my time in the barn,” says Sauers. “If we ever had to move and sell everything, I’d want to take the barn with me.” Saturdayfarm.com

the carefree lifestyle,” says Kiusalas, “and I love the texture, the feel and the warmth you get out of old wood.” He moved to the Cape in 1967 from Thompsonville, Connecticut, and worked as an ad manager at The Yarmouth Register until he decided to make furniture, he says. In the early 1970s, Kiusalas and his business partner built furniture across the street, in a building behind the capecodmagazine.com

Old Village Store. When the barn and the property—formerly the premises for the cranberry growing operation of A.D. Makepeace in the late 1800s—came up for sale in 1975, Kiusalas knew it was a perfect fit.

In the late 1800s, cows and donkeys resided in the barn, in what is now the Kiusalas’ living room and kitchen. The original support beams are intact. The family used, and still uses, in the case of the grandchildren, one of the original beams to mark the kids’ heights over the years. You can still read the names and scratches in ballpoint pen today—and see teeth marks from donkeys chewing on the beam in the 1800s. The original, wide floorboards remain, as does the original ladder to the upstairs. Kiusalas added the fireplace to the living room, which has a feature probably not found in many homes, installed into the mantle: a taillight from a 1939 Ford. It lights up when the water pump in the house goes on. “It’s for safety as well as aesthetic purposes,” says the imaginative Kiusalas. When he purchased the property, the barn was attached to a storage shed, but Kiusalas didn’t need the extra space, so he moved it. “I got up on the roof with a chainsaw and I sawed the building in half,” he explains. About 25 years ago, he added a screened-in porch to the downstairs of the barn, which became the bedroom for his wife, Barbara, and him (until the winters make it too cold). “It’s been an organic process,” he says of the house, “with layers of history.” Tara was seven when her family moved into the house, after the three siblings had decided on their bedrooms. “It was like ‘Little House on the Prairie,’” she says with a laugh. “We always had ‘Little House on the Prairie’ jokes.” Westbarnstabletables.com capecodmagazine.com

Wicked Good Southern-inspired Y’all’s Wicked Kitchen brings a fresh, new vibe to the Cape’s breakfast and lunch scene. BY LISA LEIGH CONNORS | PHOTOGRAPHY BY JULIA CUMES

After seeing social media posts about a hot new breakfast and lunch spot in South Yarmouth, I decided to check it out one Sunday morning with my husband and 8-year-old son. Located in the Yarmouth Shopping Plaza on Route 28, Y’all’s Wicked Kitchen is fun and vibrant with a Southern-inspired menu, hints of nostalgia and comfort food. As we entered, the friendly wait staff greeted us at the door and told us we could sit anywhere. We settled into a table near the large chalkboard wall listing the daily breakfast specials: banana waffles with maple honey butter, meatloaf and smoked gouda omelet, and pulled pork benedict with homefries. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and Sunday brunch, with suppers starting this summer. We loved the decor—red-and-white-checked tablecloths, license plates from around the country behind the bar, trivial pursuit cards on every table, and game boards, such as Monopoly, Sorry and Scrabble, on one half wall in the dining

area. The interior’s colors, red and black, are inspired by coowner Sara Grambach’s alma mater—University of Georgia. Owners Sara and Jason Grambach started working on the concept of Y’all’s Wicked Kitchen more than a year ago. With Jason’s bartending and managing experience at Chatham Bars Inn and Baxter’s Boathouse in Hyannis, and Sara’s background in marketing and communications, they had the right mix of experience to open their own restaurant. Sara, originally from Greenville, South Carolina, has been living and working on the Cape for 10 years, and Jason, from Tuscan, Arizona, for 20 years. “We were looking at a bunch of opportunities,” says Sara, “and

The menu is inspired by Sara’s family recipes from her mother and grandmother dating back to the 1950s.

this one presented itself at the beginning of September. We had everything together—we were just waiting for the right spot to open up.” The restaurant stays true to its motto, “Classic Fare, Southern Flare,” by offering dishes such as chicken and waffles, shrimp and grits, homemade biscuits and sausage gravy, and pulled pork sandwich with sweet potato fries. Big Willie’s Big Country, with three eggs, three slices each of bacon, ham and sausage, home fries, one flapjack and toast, is one of their biggest sellers. The menu is inspired by Sara’s family recipes from her mother and grandmother dating back to the 1950s. I ended up ordering the sweet and savory Monta Crista (a twist on the Monte Cristo sandwich), listed under Nana’s favorites: cinnamon French toast with American cheese, honeybaked ham and scrambled eggs, dusted with powdered sugar and served with handmade homefries and syrup. My husband ordered the pork hash and eggs special with homefries and my

son ordered homemade waffles and a side of bacon. The delicious meals, cooked by chef Paul Grosse, were perfectly portioned and not overly filling. After we finished, the bill arrived inside a brown paper bag lined with cardboard. It reminded me of the time when I was in grade school, when we covered our school books in brown paper bags. Y’alls Wicked Kitchen has the right mix of good food, friendly staff, nostalgia and comfortable atmosphere. “We had talked about opening a business, getting married and then starting a family, and it didn’t necessarily happen in that order,” says Sara. “Here we are!”

Ahoy, Cape craft beer connoisseurs! 6A Brewing Company in East Sandwich is on tap to delight hop-happy customers one small batch at a time. Located in a small building behind Father’s Kitchen & Taphouse—one of 6A Brewing Company’s “Pub Partners”—the nascent brewery, open since November 2017, has already developed a cult following among beer enthusiasts with their flagship Forgotten Boy IPA and Endless Night imperial stout—as well as their Lil’ Elsa pale ale and Tiny Little Gift brown ale. “We’re able to speak our minds with the beer we’re brewing,” says manager Mark Jacobs. “It’s fun.” Jacobs and head brewer Chris Meyer, a Sandwich native, met while working at Cape Cod Beer in Hyannis before their lives took them in different directions, and ultimately, to 6A Brewing Company. 6A beer is currently available at Flynn’s Irish Pub locations in Sagamore, Cedarville and Mansfield, as well as Father’s Kitchen & Taphouse in East Sandwich, with plans to expand to additional Cape establishments.

A Beginner’s Guide:

20 things to know about buying and selling a home on Cape Cod

BY MARINA DAVALOS

It’s spring on Cape Cod—an active time of year for the real estate market. To demystify the often-daunting process of buying or selling a home on the Cape, we turned to seasoned professionals for advice. “The Cape is like an island, it’s a place that’s sought after,” says Realtor Leslie Perry of William Raveis in Osterville. “Purchasing a home here is a forever investment—our supply is so limited and our demand is so huge,” says Perry.

1. A new property on the market is considered “hot.” So, it’s important to price it right from the start. If you start too high, you will lose momentum and scare off potential buyers. Your Realtor should review prices of comparable homes in the area to come up with the best price. 2. Find a Realtor who uses a wide range of marketing tools. Even if you aren’t tech savvy, your Realtor should be—real estate is entrenched in the tech world, so your Realtor needs to be connected. 3. Boutique agency vs. national brand agency? Never underestimate size for skill. A local Realtor will know your area best. 78

Here, the brokers at Salt Pond Realty LLP take us through the process of selling a home, and the professionals at William Raveis Real Estate guide us through the buying process.

4. Ask if your Realtor specializes in anything: boating, outdoors, lifestyle? Will that Realtor fit your needs? 5. Your Realtor will look at the situation from a buyer’s angle, and will make suggestions, so take their advice. To make a great first impression, they might suggest staging rooms, putting on a fresh coat of paint or sprucing up the front lawn to attract potential buyers. 6. Your agent should host an open house every weekend, especially during the first few weeks it’s on the market. 7. All the marketing in the world doesn’t replace a good rapport. Real estate is a people business and communication is key. In a sense, the house will sell itself. The price should be right, and ideally your home should sell within the first few weeks.

SELLING A HOME Furtado and Christine O’Leary are owner/brokers of Salt Pond Realty LLP in Falmouth, each with more than 15 years of experience.

Cynthia Furtado, owner/broker of Salt Pond Realty LLP in Falmouth, agrees. “We go to the beach, we kayak, we walk our dogs,” she says. “The Cape is a lifestyle.”


BUYING A HOME William Raveis Real Estate has locations throughout the Cape. We talked with Ed Kozak, area sales manager in Osterville and Falmouth; Peggy Nye, director of business development in Harwich Port; and Leslie Perry, a Realtor in the Osterville office with more than 20 years of experience.

15. When you have the pre-approval letter, your Realtor will help you make an offer. It’s important that you submit the pre-approval at the same time. If there are multiple offers, the seller will more likely accept the one with a pre-approval. NEGOTIATING AND CLOSING

8. Know what you can afford. Make an appointment with a banker, who will review your pay stubs and tax returns and pre-qualify you for an amount that fits within your budget. Know the difference: pre-qualifying is having a conversation; pre-approval is the actual amount you’ve been approved for (which comes later). 9. Decide on your location and identify your needs—the design of the house, number of bedrooms, the neighborhood. If necessary, narrow your search—can you live without a garage? Do you want to be closer to the beach?

16. If need be, the buyer and seller will negotiate the offer via their Realtors. 17. Once the seller accepts the buyer’s offer, the buyer hires a home inspector to ensure that everything is in order. The buyer can pull out or renegotiate, depending on the home inspection.

10. Find a Realtor who knows the area. For example, don’t use your broker in Boston to buy something in Falmouth.

18. The mortgage company sends an appraiser, who does due diligence for the bank. They appraise the value of the home for the bank—they want to be sure it’s worth what they’re lending out. The bank will then issue the buyer a letter of commitment.

11. Your Realtor will help you come up with a list of properties based on your price range and wish list, both by searching the MLS database and by physically driving by the properties. As new listings come on the market that fit your needs and price range, your Realtor should keep you informed.

19. The buyer will pick a closing date. Either the morning of the closing or the day before, the buyer should do a walk-through to make sure the pipes are good, the house is broom clean—everything that was agreed upon. Usually both Realtors are present, but at least the buyer’s Realtor should be with the buyer.

12. Ask your Realtor to find comps for you—properties that are similar to the one you’re looking at—to compare prices in the area.

20. At the closing, both the buyer’s attorney and seller’s attorney will be present, the mortgage documents will be signed, the deed will be recorded and the seller will hand over the keys to the new owner.

13. Throughout this process, you may have to change your priority list. Be flexible. 14. When you find a property that you’d like to buy, go back to your banker and get pre-approved.

Marathon Man

Legendary runner Johnny Kelley, founding member of the Cape Cod Athletic Club, won the Boston Marathon twice—in 1935 and 1945. BY BILL HIGGINS The 122nd Boston Marathon is on Patriots Day, April 16, beginning in Hopkinton and ending 26 miles, 385 yards later in Copley Square. First held in 1897, this is the world’s oldest annual marathon and was inspired by the revival of the modern-day Olympic marathon in Athens in 1896. No one is more associated with Boston than Johnny Kelley, who lived for many years in East Dennis and was beloved in the Cape Cod running community.
