Just so we are in understanding, I say “cottage” to mean a home that is less than 1,500 feet square. A “true” historical cottage is really anywhere from 400-1,000 square feet. Also, when I say “cottage” I do not mean a home which is typified by the English or New England’s shores; this is after all the modern Southwest replete with manufactured/planned/track/cookie cutter dwelling in an HOA ruling neighborhood.
I plan to do a complete overhaul of the place which is incredibly good condition. I shall be updating with pictures along the way. I have mapped out a renovation outline, created a budget, and planned a few house warming/open house parties . . . because I am most peculiar and Type A. In the end it will exude a “cottage inspired” look.
Today, I received the keys to the cottage and started a new chapter in my life!
