Before I share these photos I want you to Think Positive....Here is a BEFORE and AFTER of Fish Camp Cottage. I always saw it as beautiful..but "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder".



THE Amazing results of positive thinking!!!!!!!!

wait are these pics of the latest cottage you're saving?? Because it looks great! all that wood is gonna be fantastic.
And it just solidifies in my mind that tearing down that other house was the right decision. This one looks like the Hilton in comparison. I can't wait to see what you do with it!!

The owners want to build a new larger city house. They are willing to give this one away so they dont have to demo it. I tried to talk them into restoring it but three families own it together.It was their parents cottage.

What a cute cottage. Can't wait to see its transformation.

Another fabulous cottage to be rented in the future!!!

It could be the nest for the next "empty nester" that feels lost when their children go off the college. It definitely has the good energy.
