The Beach House - BEFORE PICTURES!!!

It's official - we have a beach house!!!
We signed the papers this morning.
It stills seems a bit surreal...how did a 5-10 year
dream/goal happen "randomly" within 2 months time???

I'm calling it a blessing.

How often does THIS happen??? Are you ready? We put in an
offer to the bank...someone (not sure who) doesn't
get the papers in on time to the right place...whatever.
SO, they come back to us with a house price that's LESS
than our offer!!!

Wait now.........not just a little less.

Like $60k less.


WHAT???!!!!!
Yup...I'm calling it a HUGE blessing,
because stuff like this deosn't just happen.

This is an example of just one of many things I've
wanted to share with you, but had to be patient and
wait for everything to go through.


Now it's GO time!!! YAY!!!
This is going to be fixed up to be a vacation rental, so
get your beach gear ready and come out for a visit! ;-)
I'm SO excited I finally get to show some pictures I snapped
on my phone the first day we went out there to
"take a look". :-)



WELCOME!!! Lol :-D









Looking from entry into the living room and kitchen.







Pretty good kitchen to work with here!

















Main Bath




Looking out from the dining nook.
Wouldn't you LOVE to grab a book or magazine
with your coffee, tea, or whatever, sitting
on a built in bench and enjoy the view???
I know I would!!!






That's my hubby coming out from the kitchen onto the patio.





Looking at the lower patio from the upper deck.




The upper deck and garage to boat launch.
A personal boat launch (that sold my hubby!)








This upper deck is HUGE!!!










A crazy panoramic pict. from my phone! Wow!!!




If you're looking for a place to stay this summer, well
here you go! We're going to whip it into gorgeousness!!!


If you are interested in supplying your products in The Beach House
anything from art, bedding, pillows, kitchen supplies, rugs, well...
ANYthing that belongs in a beautiful beach home
please feel free to e-mail me with questions! I will be putting together a
Design Resource Book that will be in the Beach House for rental
parties to look through as well as on the final webpage.



Be thinking of some great names for the place too!
I may run a contest or something and
the winning name gets a prize. Sound like fun???


I can't WAIT to get started and share this transformation
with all of you!



Here's to SUMMER!
