A Few of my Favorite Projects and Cottages

My web designer came to visit and brought me some images I had sent her when she did my website many years ago.
I am lucky to have worked with some amazing photographers thru the years had the pleasure of creating some 38 great cottages and having some Tybee Island Fun.

Love every single house that you have transformed, and love it even more knowing that you work within a budget, and that you are not so self-absorbed that you put your expensive desires above your clients' needs.

Where did you find the swinging bed from the white house? I would like to make one but haven't found the right bed to start with.

My favorite of the whole bunch is the bed swing. Nothing beats a porch swing that doubles as lounge/swing and also bed.
