Cottage: Lights, cabinets, action! 

We passed our final electrical inspection!  Not that there were any doubts but it is still nice to have out of the way.Mom & Pop have been keeping things moving since our vacation.  The cabinets arrived about a week behind schedule so they didn’t make it… Continue Reading “Cottage: Lights, cabinets, action! “

Cottage: Summer Vacation Edition

As vacations often do, ours felt like it went by far too fast.  We spent last week back in Michigan.  It was a wonderfully busy week that included: working on the cottage, a couple of days in Traverse City (more on that to come… Continue Reading “Cottage: Summer Vacation Edition”

Cottage: Memorial Weekend

Once again, I feel like I am a little tardy with this update, but better late than never right?  Over Memorial Day Weekend we were back in Michigan working on the cottage and were able to get A LOT accomplished while still having time… Continue Reading “Cottage: Memorial Weekend”

Cottage: Onward!

FINALLY over Easter weekend were back in Michigan to work on our cottage after what felt like a long hiatus for the two of us.  In addition to Mom & Dad, we were fortunate enough to have some extra help from our friends, Stephanie & Aaron. We ended up… Continue Reading “Cottage: Onward!”

Cottage: Behind the Scenes

It am a little overdue on a Cottage update, other than my recent post (For the love of cork) about our flooring choice, which I think counts as half credit. Mark & I  haven’t been back up there to work since last fall but there… Continue Reading “Cottage: Behind the Scenes”

For the love of cork

When I tell people that we have decided on cork flooring for our cottage (with the exception of the bathroom), the reaction has been a mixed bag…something along the lines of “like a cork board?” Not quite. Cork flooring has evolved and is available in a variety of sizes,… Continue Reading “For the love of cork”

Goals

How in the heck is it almost 2017?…we’ve all been saying it, or at least thinking it.  The end of one year and beginning of another always seems to bring forth a certain amount of reflection, good and bad.  For 2017, instead of “making resolutions” I… Continue Reading “Goals”

Grey Christmas

Today I am in denial.  Denial that short of a miracle, we will not have a white Christmas…more like grey.  Much to my dismay, nearly all of the snow (which wasn’t much) from last weekend has melted.  The weather forecast for Christmas day is a high of 50… Continue Reading “Grey Christmas”

Cottage: Before and After

Quick post today to share a before and after comparison of where we are at now with the exterior compared to when we started in the Spring.  Not bad for a few long summer weekends huh?   Below are a couple more photos dad sent me… Continue Reading “Cottage: Before and After”

Cottage: We Passed! 

Just received confirmation from Dad that we passed the rough-in inspection (passed electrical earlier this week) Do you know what this means? We get to spend our Labor Day weekend putting in insulation and then drywall!  Maybe this doesn’t sound like your ideal way… Continue Reading “Cottage: We Passed! “
