Tecumseh Area Living Magazine

About Us

Established in 2006

Established in 2006 in the offices of The Tecumseh Herald - Homefront began as an exclusive real estate book and quickly morphed into a community lifestyle magazine. Originally mailed exclusively to every home and business in Tecumseh, we now reach far outside the Tecumseh area. The full-color glossy format has become a "must read" and therefore a "must advertise in..." publication.

What We Do

Located 30 miles Southwest of Ann Arbor, we explore and bring to light the rich offerings this corner of Southeast Michigan has to offer. From farm to table recipes, antique offerings, loft renovations, personal stories and exciting events, our seasonal magazine focuses on the charm of small town living.

Spreading the Word

Known for taking immense pride in our work, we feel we succeed when our advertisers do. Our 5 time MPA (Michigan Press Association) Award Winning graphic artists create many successful ad campaigns for local small businesses wishing not to remain small. Our design fee is free and is incorporated in our ad space rates. Businesses using their own agencies are also welcome to spread the word to our avid readers.

Barn Again

Barn Again

Jackie Koch    Winter 2016-17 Homefront

Down a short, tree-lined lane in the Irish Hills area, an unobtrusive ranch-style home blends in with its surroundings, wood siding and brick echoing the hues of the wooded drive. The house has obviously seen some improvements, but once the door is opened, the interior reveals a marriage of new paint and old barn wood, of lake and farm.

The owners bought the house on a secluded drive, a place on a lake close to home, where they could enjoy the water but still be near their year-round residence. When the time came to remodel the house, they looked at some ideas using barn wood. That's where Aaron Andrews came in.

Remember the Raisin

As the enemy closes in, the First Lady saves a portrait of George Washington as she flees the soon to be burning White House. Washington D.C. is under attack. On the Northern Front, U.S. troops regroup after the invasion of Canada. Yes, that's right, the U.S. invaded Canada. This is the War of 1812.

The Forgotten War
Tucked in between the Revolutionary and Civil wars, The War of 1812 is the unseen middle child of U.S. History. Yet, this often glanced-over war not only solidified the United States as a world power, but it is both the story of overwhelming victory and remarkable Read more
