{Our Cottage} Exterior

Today's post ends our "before & after" pictures of our house. The "before" below was the house when I met Charles. A few years later, it was time for a paint job. We choose an olive color. I believe it was Behr paint, matched to Ralph Lauren's Master Room. The trim is Behr Super White.
Then you will notice, the screen porch is non-existent. After years of thinking how to maximize our space, the idea for our master bath & closet was born. Since the screened porch shared a wall with one of the bedrooms, it worked out perfectly to create a true master suite.
This was the renovation process from the outside. We started in late winter/early spring 2009, and moved in around May 2009. Our house was already a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, but one of the bathrooms is in the basement. Now we are officially a 3/2 on the main floor. If you are new to the blog, please see the few posts before today's for interior pictures, or click the "our cottage" or "renovation" labels on the right!
