Dream home proves patience pays off

Written by: Eva Grippa

Every year, Housetrends features dozens of beautiful homes that each have something special to offer our readers. Gracious homeowners, all with their own unique story, invite us in to see the most sacred of spaces, allowing us to catch a snapshot of their lives. In NFL wide receiver Mike Furrey and his wife Koren’s case, the snapshot is the best part of the story. Their West Jefferson home is amazing, but going beyond just the aesthetics—to their motivations and journey—is well worth the trip. For the Furreys, who both grew up in Hilliard and met in the second grade, building this home was the culmination of a lifetime of hard work mixed with, in Mike’s words, “a lot of dreaming.”
