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.

More Freebies for the Cabin

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!
