Cottage in the Making, Part 4...

It's coming together...

The workers are putting in the last details
The debris needs to be cleaned up, and the land graded
Can you find my doggie? She's there...looking at us
Click on the photo for a better view

The pillars still need smoothing and painting

The floors and stairs need staining
The door on the left leads into the laundry & sewing room
On the right is an extra bedroom with it's own bath

The windows on each side of the front door are in

A simple more than is needed for a simple life
We are still waiting for the completion and arrival of our
free standing island counter/table

The openings above the bedroom door (on the right)
will have some kind of detail to cover/decorate them...
just haven't made up my mind, yet
We want good air flow through the cottage
No air conditioner in this home...never did like them

The pantry cupboard

Master closets (doorway inbetween to bath)
As for furniture...
my husband and I will make some ourselves...
and others by local carpentars
Basic pieces is all we need

Have a good day, or night.


  1. What a beautiful project. I can't wait until it is all finished. It's going to be awesome!...Christine

  2. a gorgeous home!! cannot wait to see what you do with the inside of your home......and yes, you were right about the apples...the horse wanted them more than the girls :)

  3. This is looking great and I am looking forward to seeing the finished product!

  4. What a gorgeous cottage! :)

    Living on an island sounds so intriguing. No windows, huh? We'd get eaten alive in the summertime with mosquitos.

    Our summer season is gone and autumn is fading fast. I love autumn. It's so beautiful in WI in autumn. Now most of the trees are bare and the branches make a lonely moaning sound in the wind. I won't hear the friendly leaves rustling until next spring! Even so, I love all the seasons, including winter.

    Your dog looks so sweet sitting on the stairs, just waiting for you to snap the photo!

  5. I've been going through your posts, and I am in love with your cottage.

    Beautiful! Simple and beautiful!

    It looks like you live in a rare and beautiful place, how blessed you are!

    Can't wait to see more updates of your home as you complete it.
