Ten years ago we found our little cottage; or maybe the cottage found us. It did not fit our criteria; we were adamant we must have two full baths, a garage and seriously wanted a screened porch. She had one bath, no garage and no screened porch. But she felt right, so we bought her.
It has been a labor of love ever since! We immediately had another bath installed and a garage and carport built and our canvas was ready. Over the past 10 years we have changed the landscape dramatically. ABN comes up with ideas and Captain brings them to fruition.

So, is the canvas finished? Of course not! Finishing touches are needed in ABN’s studio, aka The Underground, ABN has ideas on updating the upstairs bedroom, the dining room is calling for some built-ins, and something was said about a fire-pit. There is no rush; we’ll work it in around bike rides, travel, football games and glasses of wine with friends on the porch.
