House Crush—My Renovations

Highlands Falls house
This house was an all-time favorite.

House Crush today is all about my own renovations—Oh, how I love a good project! I was thinking of doing ‘before and afters’ of my renovations but finding the before on a few of them has been a problem….I’ll keep working on that one. Have a little peek at a few of my projects that you might have missed. I was once told my real estate agent that I did charming cottage the best and to stick with it. Well, charming cottage is my favorite type of house, and I am sticking with it. Stone walls, poplar bark, cedar shakes, board and batten are constants in my renovations. Mr. P once said that I bought a house for the stone wall—it was the truth. I am on the search for the Next one now…wish me luck!
