I'm so excited!
You may remember this post about our cottage in Michigan...
Or this one...
or this one...
We have had a blast renovating this cottage over the last several years.
We have made new friends in our new neighborhood
and have fallen in love with the area.
You can see why...
So you can imagine our excitement when
good friends of ours bought the cottage next door to us!
And the renovations have begun!
Here's what the two cottages looked like about 7 years ago,
when we first bought ours, and before any renovations.
Ours is the one on the right, and man was it ugly....
It makes the cottage our friends just bought (on the left below) look like a palace!
Fast forward to this fall.
Lots of exciting plans are in the works to make the best use of the space
and to give it the TLC it deserves.
Unfortunately, it has to get even uglier before it gets better.
Here is the cottage as it looks this week!
Outside work is a priority now- lots to do before the weather gets too wintry.
Layers of old siding have been removed, making way for clean new siding,
roofing repairs are being made, and doors and windows are being relocated.
A new deck will be added too- with an extra cute railing design.
Lots of nice trim being added and some old elements restored.
And that's just the beginning!
I'll share more as things happen.
It's going to be wonderful!
