I Started a New Blog

We recently purchased an older cottage in Parry Sound, and while it is in very good shape, the reno-addict in me has already started planning a few projects on the new place. So i'm starting a new blog to share those projects.

Some of the more ambitious reno projects i want to tackle are exterior painting, interior painting, flooring in the bedrooms, new french doors, replacing the wood-burning stove with a freplace, a new bathroom, and a new kitchen. However since it is a cottage blog i also plan on sharing more fun little DIY projects. Some ideas i have are: building Muskoka chairs, building a bird apartment for a purple martin colony, building a bat house, building a vermicomposter and various art projects.

We've closed down the cottage for the winter, so there won't be much action until the Spring, that gives me all winter to dream up new ideas, so hopefully come Spring i'll have lots of projects to blog about. You can follow along HERE

Awesome! Now if I ever need build a bat house, I will know where to look. Have you seen Kitka Design's cottage on their blog? Minimal and modern but a very impressive transformation.

We recently found your blog. Love the mix of design and technical details. We'll follow your cottage reno for the vicarious thrill. We've forgone a cottage to avoid the additional fetter, but the allure is still strong. We know the Maple Lake area near Parry sound. Looks like you got a gem.
