Original Cottage 1989
Original Cottage 1989

In the winter of 1988 I found this house with my realtor, as soon as I laid eyes on the house I knew this would be the place I'd spend the rest of my life. The closing on the house was June 9, 1989. Renovation on the house began that night and has been on going for the last 31 years.
