Cottage Recap: Living/Dining

For the first Cottage Recap we looked back at the exterior transformation. Now it’s time to move inside to the living/dining area.  One open space that will get the most use by far…including as a guest room.  I’m happy to report, according to our FIRST overnight guests, the pull-out couch is actually comfortable!

MARCH 2016: There were some charming rustic features but we ended up taking everything out so we could start with a blank slate

We salvaged/recycled as much as possible, down to the studs

We were able to raise the ceiling and play with the footprint

New insulation, drywall, sub-floor & wood planks…so many wood planks

This is when things started to get really exciting…painting & flooring

And then my favorite part…decorating and “moving in”

SUMMER 2018: Completed living/dining space = LOVE

The finishing touch was “Mark’s chair.” A recliner that was heavily debated and required a good amount of searching.  Thankfully, we found one we could agree on.

Now we can relax & enjoy!
