New Life Into An Old Cottage……..(The House That Found A Home)

I loved this cottage and tried to get the owners to let me help them restore it. They wanted "new"
and could not see the potential in this magical place. A client of mine bought it so I had the opportunity to help move and save it and restore it. I wish it could have been restored where it sat because it has to be brought up the code and raised up. Here are a few finished photos. I will post the before photos on the next post.

So sad it had to be moved, but it looks great and I
love the inside and all its "We are at the beach so lets relax and
have fun" colors.
I am looking at snow covered landscape today here in Michigan.
Sending good wishes to all those folks who are at the beach.

Oh, I hope the people that got rid of it will see these photos . . . shame on them. At least they didn't not tear it down. It's absolutely beautiful:)

P.S. I'm having a Give-A-Way . . . come get your name in the hat:)

Oh my gosh, I can't believe you got turned down on you offer to help restore this cottage in its original location. Thank goodness it was able to be moved and that you were able to work your magic on it. If I ever buy a house on Tybee, I'm calling you ofr help.

Luv this cottage's transformation. Glad that you were able to restore and add a facelift. My question is what is the name of the house paint and are the shutters yellow or lime green. Can't really tell on the phone screen. Thank you so much. Real eye candy. Luv it.
