Progress Report For the Cottage That Needs a Home.

On July 5th last 2012, I posted about a cottage that needed  a home.   Here is an update of the cottage at it's new location . It is a beautiful lot with wonderful trees and a view of one of Tybee Islands great parks.
 It is now time for decisions.... new windows( the original ones are long gone,)  door swings, colors , counter tops, cabinets, bath room floor tile and placement of furniture. In small space planning is very important.

 it was raised 8' to meet Fema coastal guide lines
we will design a great underpinning and outdoor shower for the cottage

it feels like a tree house.. very special.. has amazing energy

looks rough but is headed for a wonderful "makeover"
the vinyl siding was removed and the great original color was exposed

did you know,, small custom windows are more expensive

original window  on the front of the house was covered with vinyl siding ..It needs it to be a window once again and we need to lose the ugly storm door.....

should we try to keep the wall paper? just kidding .. the wall is
going to be gone and there will be an open floor plan. the kitchen will
become a bedroom and the bedroom will become a kitchen

time to do the dishes ....tee hee

back stairs

this space will be a laundry room and 1/2 bath connector

the old wood siding

 I really like the green color with the black shutters

side view facing our great park.
This amazing cottage is  very special!!!!! Thanks so much to the Patton's for taking the cottage, to Braswell Brothers for moving it here safely and to Catskill Builders for doing the renovation . The "Magic" is just beginning...
Stay tuned

Your vision is just amazing. It kind of looks like a summer camp house with the green siding, black shutters and tree cutout. I can't wait to see the story come out. Please show us lots of pictures.
