An abandoned cottage gets a complete overhaul
I first saw this cottage in the fall of 2014, and it sure looked like it could be swept away in a strong wind. It pretty much was a derelict cottage, neglected and not in use. My first step was to draw up a floor plan for this 600 sq' house but using existing structure. I used a basic 3D program, but it provided what was needed. Once we had a pretty good use of the space, my partner Marie drew up a nice small Ikea kitchen and bath layout based on my plans and then I started to choose all materials for kitchen and bath as well as the furniture. In the end, the cute cottage is cozy and inviting, using a lot of materials found on the farm such as all the barn wood you can in the interior doors and some used for some of the furniture.
