A huge THANK-YOU to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Metamorphosis Monday.
A Trip Through Time
Thanks to the daughter of the previous owner, I was able to scan old slides of the cottage from 1960.
Remember the pink siding we discovered when we tore out the bathroom wall?
Jump ahead 44 years to the day we first visited the cottage....
The day we became cottage owners ~
September 10, 2004
This is why we bought the cottage.
November 2004 .....Not quite as pretty as the sunset.
The Work BeginsApril 2005
New windows and doors.
A lake side deck.
Off with the old aluminum siding.
Might as well improve the roof line before we shingle.
Gosh, that was NOT in the plan...while I was working, this feature was added...hmmm...what to do now?
Go with it....guess we will have an upstairs some day!
New vinyl shakes...hey we don't want to WORK when we retire!
And that's what happened to our cottage in the first year.
(on the outside, that is) If you haven't seen what we did on the inside that winter,click HERE and HERE.
Thanks for stopping by.
Come back soon for another episode in Cottage Life.
Now, be sure to visit all the other participants at Between Naps on the Porch. You are in for a treat!
