Our Tybee Cottage Is On the Move!

How exciting--my very first post!  My husband Henry and I have been remodeling a couple of cottages at Tybee Island to rent.  All spring and summer I have been driving to the beach, not to swim and sun, but to work on the cottages with Jane Coslick, our design consultant and project manager.

Recently, Jane was asked to find someone who would be willing to take another old cottage in need of TLC, move it to another lot, and love it back to life.   Henry and I thought it over and asked if that someone could be us.  We were thrilled to buy the cottage for a dollar and today was moving day!

This is a picture of the cottage on its previous lot:

This is the lot we purchased...we love all the trees and it is next to the park:

And here is a picture of our little cottage moving down the road to its new home:

In my next post I will show you more pictures of moving day once I have time to sort through them.  Oh it's so delightful to have a little cottage at the beach.  We have a long way to go before it is ready to live in...can't wait to get started!


  1. It was so cool to go over to the property and see the house moving in progress! I'm glad that you're going to document the process as things move along.

  2. Thanks girls! It is nice to have your support.

  3. Thanks for sharing the pictures and process of the cottage projects.

  4. Thanks for reading Kathy! Yours is my first comment from a non-family member--so exciting. I hope you'll be back

  5. I remember seeing this on Jane's blog and wondered who the lucky person was that got the cottage! Yay!! I am going to go back thru your blog and see the progress. I just found you thru Jane's blog today.

    1. I'm so happy that you found me! Jane has an awesome blog and I really appreciate her sharing my blog with her readers.
