Little Cottage

We have a new addition to The Cottage grounds!

Back up to a Friday evening in early February.  
Mr. D and I are wandering through the 2013 Builders Home Show stopping at all the booths with kitchen cabinets, countertops, flooring & sinks scoping out potential kitchen products.

We hit up the "Once Upon A Playhouse" exhibit and Mr. D gives up a ten spot, then slips his carefully folded raffle ticket into the entry box in front of the playhouse named "Home Growin.'"

The very next Sunday afternoon Mr. D takes a call telling him that he won a playhouse.
He WON a PLAYHOUSE!
Imagine me literally jumping up and down with joy.
I seriously was jumping around the room.
embarrassing myself.


The next day our little cottage arrived
on the back of a flatbed tow truck.

So much cuteness going on


Our new little cottage was built by 
Riverland Community College and Habitat Restore


I love that the materials used are all re-purposed.
DOORS, SHINGLES, ROOFING WINDOWS, FLOORING, RAILINGS, WOOD


Aren't the slate look roof and sunlight windows awesome?


front porch with railing, spindles, flower box, wood floor
and..... a pineapple door knocker! 


...just couldn't resist editing some branches in --- imagine the window box with petunias!


yup, the window opens!


door window reflecting on the interior wall...


solid surface countertop
cute cabinets
hardwood floors


windows on all sides!




every few days I step in the little cottage
and find it surprisingly warm even on cold days -- solar heat baby!


The dogs always join me -- they dig the place too.
Baby Girl and I are making plans for the little cottage ....
We have options
Potting Shed / Greenhouse
Get-away with a daybed
Guesthouse
and the obvious -- a playhouse someday

First decision to make is WHERE to put it!
Again, we have some options.
You know I'll keep you posted. (pun intended)

Just for kicks, I put together a little GIF of the delivery.


So much fun waiting to happen!
