Beach cottage progress...




We went out to the beach last night to deliver yet more lumber. As you can see, there have been some changes. The windows are really really nice and add alot to the small space. They are almost 6 inches wider and 8 inches taller than the original delapitated windows that were originally in the property.



The front porch is gone-thank god- that thing was really rotten and needed to be taken down. We will be putting up a shed dormer style porch- very simple style. Large 6x6 posts holding it up out toward the street.

I am excited! we are really making some progress. We had to higher a new electrician, we have been waiting for the 1st one for, well since November-ridiculous. I am not into it any longer, dont really care if he is a friend of the family or what. My brother (who is also flipping) has also been waiting for him, and has since turned me on to this new guy. Oh well, time is money they say in the world of house flippers (like I know..sheesh, we are so "small potatoes") I just hope someone will buy the place from us..

I have more photos, but dont want to bore you with t0o much of a "wood and tool show" Although, it makes bobvilla horny..(hi honey)

Well, whatchathinkin??? got any big ideas? nows the time to let it out.. Waitin to hear from you

I hope your porch becomes a wonderful space all in itself. Our porch is what sold me on our house! DH said, "Don't you think we ought to look INSIDE as well??" Well, of course! There was a delightful unique staircase. Let's make the offer! As an added bonus, the rest of the house was in great condition and fits our family well. :)

By the way - any paint marketed as "warm muffin" needs to be on the walls of my house.

I didn't realize you were redoing it to flip. I think it is wonderful and has tons of potential. I look forward to seeing more progress.

Oh my gosh!!

It looks better already! I can't believe what a difference it makes to tear off that porch! It was really bringin' the place down, wasn't it?

Everything is looking good! More photos :) They're making ME horney. Ha haaaa.

Evening Lisa!

So at one point you must have decided not to keep this as a B&B or am I thinking of someone else? Soon you will be able to work your magic when all the boring practical stuff gets done! I can very much visualize a covered front porch with 2 adirondack chairs sitting & waiting to welcome all visitors! Keep the photos coming! How is your stores red tape progress coming? ~Dona
