Things are really starting to come together at the beach house. We still have a lot of details to finish and need a few more decor items. We are officially 1 month out from our first renters, so it is pedal to the metal time! Here are a few pictures from our recent work trip.
Like I said before, the siding and windows were just installed. I hadn't seen it in person until last week. It was stunning! So many folks have given us their compliments and thumbs-ups. It is a total transformation, that's for sure. Here's the deck/game room side (we are still waiting to
install buy pick out outdoor lights).
This is a shot of the other side of the house. One day I might show you pictures of the rotten wood/windows that came out. Maybe not. It was pretty gross. Needless to say, we were glad we made the decision to do this work (especially after our window guy said that a few years ago there had been a class action lawsuit over our exact old windows for leaking/rotting).
I'm also pretty tickled by the vintage badminton rackets on the staircase (they came out of a camper we bought years ago):
Adirondack chairs and garden stools are ready and waiting on the deck:
Lots of hooks right inside the kitchen door for all the towels, hoodies, hats, baseball gloves (lol!), beach bags, etc.:
Dining room table and chairs got a nice fresh coat of bright aqua paint:
And although we pretty much worked through the sunsets, we were up at the crack of dawn and got to see some very beautiful sunrises:
I can't wait to show you some of the other rooms as they are coming together. I've got some cool tips and some minor flops I also want to share. Priority right now, however, is to "git 'er done!" (And reapply the Icy Hot to my aching muscles!)
