Here’s an update on where we’re at with our backyard makeover. Come see what we’ve gotten done over the last 14 months.
18 months ago we moved our office into a little cottage in our backyard. I shared pictures of the space before we moved in, and since then, I’ve done a couple garden updates, but I know what you’ve really been waiting for is an update on the interior. And I finally have one for you.
It’s porch-sitting season, so I thought I’d take you guys on a tour of our front porch today. This is how our porch looks now, but that’s not how it’s always looked. Let me show you how it’s evolved over the years.
Woo hoo! My Frugal Home finally has its own space!
After 15 years of working from home, we had long-since outgrown our little 100-square foot office, but we’d been slow to do anything about it because we had a plan.
That plan involved purchasing the little cottage behind our house, which finally came up for sale this August.
We closed on it Thursday, and have already moved most of our stuff over. But before we did that, I snapped a bunch of pictures to share with you guys. Let’s start the tour outdoors.
It’s been almost eight months since I’ve updated you on our progress with the cabin. So, I thought I’d show you what we got done this spring.
Since February, we’ve been focused on outdoor projects.
After several weeks of rain, the sun finally decided to make an appearance. Determined to make the most of it, I grabbed my camera and snapped pictures of another part of our house. Come see my oldest daughter’s room.
If you’ve been following our cabin progress, you might recall that I’ve been collecting free doors for a secret project (to be revealed at a later date). We’ve rescued quite a few doors from curb piles, but this project is going to take a lot of doors, so I also asked friends and family to keep an eye out for us. That paid off last week. My sister-in-law called to say her friends had some doors they wanted to get rid of. So, I called them up, and we went over to pick them up. That trip netted three doors. Awesome!
Next stop on the home tour: our upstairs bathroom. It’s a beautiful, functional space now, but it wasn’t always that way, and getting it to this point took far more work than we ever bargained for. Come take a look.
