Here comes the sun.

Here comes the sun.

Best part of living at the beach is being outside.  Enjoying the outdoors. 
The outdoors without snow. 
The outdoors without negative temperatures. 
Sunshine. SUNSHINE. & more Sunshine.

In the original floor plan, a sliding door in my daughter's room was the only way to the backyard space.  I just could not picture friends and family parading through here every time we went outside.  In addition, the furniture placement in this room would be limited. 

Next, the original kitchen (shown below) had a single door in a galley style kitchen.  This door went out to the side of the house.  Let's be honest, it really didn't lead to a beautiful oasis....not yet anyway

We decided to replace the window in the dining area with a beautiful French door and install a large kitchen window above the future farm sink.   

The amount of light coming in the house will be amazing.  Excited for you to see the new windows installed.

a shucking mess.


a shucking mess.

Before this can be our little beach house, it needs to get a lot MESSY. 

It’s simple. 
Rent dumpster.
Empty house.


We couldn't wait to remove the carpet from every room in this house. 

(yep, that is dirt.  geee-ross. )


Kitchen Demo


In addition to the demo in the kitchen, we removed the wall dividing the kitchen from living room and relocated the heating and air unit.







Laundry Room
*pay special attention to the man-made dryer vent kicked in the wall. 
kicked in.

So excited to share our journey with you.  Stay tuned for some structural changes that will make this forgotten house into an incredibly, functional place!

Steamed Oysters & a Yuengling.

Hook, Line, and Sinker

You took the bait. 

Now I know two things about you. 

You are interested and NOT AFRAID. 


Let's take a little tour of this blue beauty and see what it has inside.

Ok, I think you have seen enough.    

Take a breath.

There are times I have to remind myself of the

big blue ocean and a beautiful beach sitting out there! 

It makes this whole process worth every drop of blood, sweat, and tears worth it! 

I’ve been hooked. 

Trust me y’all!
