Ta Daaa!

It is so gratifying to take a house from this (sort of like a lady without her makeup on):

To this:

Then finally shutters and the sign were added--even the crew working on the house from Horton Remodeling cheered!  Ta Daaaa!!


I feel like cheering too!  I'm going to enjoy this little triumph for a few days and then it will be time to call in my brother, Bill Griffin, a Savannah landscape architect to create a beautiful setting for the house.  Stay tuned!


  1. Great job... makeup looking good!

  2. Dolly Parton says "There's no such thing as natural beauty"!

  3. Hello, just found your blog - oh how very exciting to read about your renovations to these sweet little homes. I am in the process of finding my own little cottage, so I can't wait to read updates and see photos.

    1. I'm glad you found me and I am super excited that you are looking for a little cottage of your own--keep looking and one day just the right cottage will turn up! Hope you'll join me often and share your cottage pictures with me once you find it!
