Meet our house!

This is Stonegate Cottage, it's nothing special but we love it and it has become a beautiful home for us over the last year and a half.  It's a cape cod style with one and a half stories and a full basement, all told that's about 1,200 square feet...just perfect for us!  It was built in 1950, in a cottage neighborhood that actually follows an old dried-out creek bed, occasionally it causes water problems but the curving streets and hills are absolutely charming!

(complete with hubs coming home from work...yes that is a pink truck in the driveway)

I thought I'd start out with a reasonably updated shot of the exterior before I ease you into the "before" pics of the interior.  The previous owner didn't even live here most of the time so you can just imagine!

We love our location, we're within walking/biking distance of a grocery store, farmer's market, organic pharmacy, fabric store and a village "downtown" with eateries and little boutique shops.  Nothing beats the convenience but we both prefer a more rural lifestyle, it's been a challenge fitting that into our little village lot!

Our cottage is small but full of clever ideas for making the most of the space inside and out!  I'm excited to show you the beauty of living
