After the house was sold, we decided to reinvest some of that money to update the cottage.
You see, we never intended to live full time at the cottage. When we moved our little trailer off the land we put up a side by side. We could have ordered it with all the upgrades, but we did not. We only ordered the extra insulation and good windows packages.
After our retirement we spent spent so much time at the cottage it was a given to just live here and sell the house in town.
Now the dilemma is: we're stuck with a "cheap" looking home.
I have always loved white woodwork, so now is the time to change out all the woodwork.
All the trim is neatly piled on the garage floor.
The doors are stacked in a corner.
The materials for the bathrooms are also in the garage....just waiting to be installed!!
New laminate flooring for the bathrooms, giving the appearance of ceramic tile.
In the largest bathroom, we are taking out the tub and putting in a walk-in shower. That piece is still en-route!! Initially we wanted a ceramic walk in, but in talking with a few folks who have building experience, we were told that ceramic was not such a good idea in a modular home, as they tend to shift. Shifting would crack the grouting and we'd be facing a big mess.
I was happy with my existing kitchen cabinets. I just wanted new counter tops.
The current white tops are somewhat porous and hard to keep clean.
Well guess what!!
The cupboards are not standard, being two inches narrower than standard cupboards. So off to the kitchen design center at the building supply store. After a few hours we worked out new cupboards. They are now stacked in front of the pontoon!!
The kitchen counter top is under the boat!!!
Not being able to get the pontoon out, I guess we won't be fishing until this remodel project is finished.
And don't forget the kitchen sink, That's on a shelf .......
Whew, I'm getting tired just looking at all this stuff................. TO BE CONTINUED>>>>
And that's the way it is........................
