it’s been a while since i updated you on our little slice o paradise aka the penthouse aka the pentwater palace.
since we got her resided we…. have not done anything else. we have had a lot going on getting the store ready to open, holiday parties, work trips etc. it’s been a busy couple of months. we are planning on going there and assessing some projects we’d like to get done there this spring.
i do miss the little red house but i’m still just blown away by the new siding.
here is a list of exterior things…
window boxes..or shutters? I think the outside still needs a little texture. i’m afraid if i did shutters i couldn’t get them to fit in the peak of the top windows so maybe window boxes would be a better option?
porch lights. ordered them a few months ago should arrive in february. i bought these amazing copper shiny barn light style fixtures that i think will really pop against the gunmetal siding.
door: i really want to paint it red as an homage to the previous siding color. thoughts?
porch: need to paint that white maybe add a railing?
landscaping: need to figure out what grows in sand and shade….
inside…. is a different story. we need to find a creative way to wrap the beams in the house. right now they are just bare ugly wood. need to figure out.. reclaimed wood maybe?
the obvious things: trim, floor, paint, finish paneling near hot water heater….
the thing we don’t know and need a builders help for is the door to the bedroom downstairs. it has two doors because it used to be two small bedrooms but we need to have the header fixed. if we mess with that on our own… pentwater could quickly become a one story house… no thanks.
we have a lot to do clearly but we have come such a long way in the three summers we’ve spent there. we gutted the entire place, insulated, fixed the plumbing re did all the electrical, fixed some structural issues. we are getting there! what do you think so far? anybody have an idea on some tiny house ideas? (keep in mind we are beginner handyman)
