Today is a celebration of one year in the Cottage!
When we bought this bungalow in January of 2010, this is how is looked.
I was depressed for three days after going through this house!
It had great bones, and so much character in this hundred year old house,
but it needed SO MUCH WORK.
After four months of working on it full-time, we moved in on May 31, 2010.
It still needed quite a bit of work. :)
The landscaping looked like the above picture, even though the exterior had been painted like below.
One year later, there is still work to be done! :)
But I took this picture this morning,
to celebrate one year
of being in our dear little cottage!
After four years of being in a rental house,
being able to own our own home once again was a dream come true!
There is still work to be done, but it feels like home…. ♥
We love the little Cottage at 341 South!
