I’ve been promising “before” photos of the cottage for a while now. Let’s start with photos of the little house and the other buildings on our mini-farm. Yes, these photos were taken during a drive-by, with no real thought we’d own the property a couple of weeks later! They’re unedited, so you can get a feel for exactly what we saw on that first day (apologies for the bits of car interior and/or windshield I caught in a few of the shots).
The cottage on the first day we saw her; October 3rd, 2013.
Gorgeous view left of the cottage. Sadly, we don’t own this view — 49.01 acres sold separately from our tract, and this is part of it. Luckily it doesn’t perc, so we’re hopeful it’ll remain this way!
Hay barn (rear) and the white barn — shop/man cave/husband’s dream space.
Garden area behind the cottage, wellhouse and older-than-dirt barn.
Pergola — makes for a pretty view from what will become the main living area of the cottage.
SO much is happening now; next up, lots of “before” and “during” interior photos (demolition, tons and tons of demolition!!!). And coming soon — before and after floor plans!
