Here it is! "The Cottage"

Here are a couple photos of the new place!

It's a second story unit - not a stand alone cabin. We talked around and around this issue and came to the decision that low maintenance and amenities out-weighed having a plot of land to ourselves. It is exactly the type of place we like to stay in while on vacation, making it a perfect vacation home away from home for us. To us, it is "the cottage".

It is older but move in ready. There really isn't too much that needs to be done (besides the obvious, and the diys, and all my big ideas!)

ps. I'm going to be blogging like it's 2010 over here!


  1. hooray! I'm so excited for you, and we can follow along. looks like the perfect blank (well, pretty colorful right now) slate to start with! love all your plans so far.

  2. Wow that is so exciting! Can't wait to see you give it your style.

  3. Eeek! It's a big cottage! Congrats! Paint is going to work wonders! Thanks for taking us along the reno/DIY journey.

  4. Congratulations, Shannon! That's so incredibly exciting. I've often dreamed of having a cottage, but the maintenance never appealed to me. What a perfect solution! Can't wait to see how you decorate the new space :)

    Ps. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. So glad you liked what you heard from The Head and the Heart. They're my favourite!

  5. what a great solution to "low maintenance"! sounds like the type of "cottage" that would suit me! :)

  6. Nice! Where is it? Do you have to go far??
