Coming Soon - The Beach Cottage

After 4 long months of construction, we can't quite believe that the finish line is in sight.  Our goal is to have it on the market the first weekend in April.  And thanks to contractors that are willing to work 7 days a week, we're getting a lot accomplished!  Not sure we can get it all done in time, but here's a quick update.


We've come a long way!  The original, cramped 2nd floor is gone and has been replaced with a spacious new structure, including a dramatic master suite, 2 additional bedrooms and bath, and lots of windows - bringing sunlight into every space!  Click here to see all the before photos.
The siding is almost done, the new columns and railing are going in and the new lights and mailbox went up yesterday. The brackets have been installed and add some architectural detail to the exterior. 


The painting is complete.  And it's made a dramatic difference.  Now, this isn't your garden variety paint job.  Matt Backman and his crew spray all the trim for a flawless finish.

And they fill every single hole in the walls, resulting in a like-new look.  This stairwell from the garage is 70 years old - see all the holes they had to fill?  Now it looks flawless!

And we're all in awe of this 70 year old fireplace.  It doesn't have a single nick or blemish.  And it looks fantastic with its new paint finish.  

But most of all, we love the bright, open floor plan.  There's lots of room for everyone to gather in the kitchen, but also to relax in the living room, or host a formal dinner party in the dining room.  The staircase alterations just got completed.  We love the mahogany handrail and crisp white newel posts.

The lighting is getting installed this week.  It really helps make the house look complete. 

As you can see, there's more to be done.  But it's getting close to the finish line!  And of course we'll be sharing lots of photos as each room is completed.   Watch the blog or Facebook for updates as we prep for the Open House.
