the little house
My husband's parent's live an hour north of us, on the back of a salt marsh, near the ocean. They have a little cottage on their property which was built by my husband's great grandfather, but for many years it sat unused and in sorry shape, and the place became a haven for insects and field mice and squirrels.
A few years ago my husband and I asked if we could clean the place out, and paint it in return for being able to stay there when we come to visit. My in-laws said yes, and a great project was born. So, this week I will be sharing pictures of this little house. It took a lot of work, a lot of white paint and a few trips to Ikea, but now it is just a simple, relaxing place for us.
