Couple resurrected an 18th-century Connecticut farmhouse in Potomac.
In Potomac, Jim and Linda Hobbins have given 21st-century living an 18th-century backdrop. The main section of their shingled, brick-red home is the frame of a 1790 Colonial Connecticut farmhouse. An adjoining new wing adds more living space, storage and a garage. The couple raised five children in the house. Linda waters flowers on the front steps of her house. “I loved the idea of the heritage of it and the spirit of it, and that the house would not die — we would resurrect it,” she says.
