Cottage Home on Murphy Lake, Remodel
We have been doing a whole house remodel, including the yard. Just finished getting the new Trex deck. Still have a lot to do, but it's coming along. We plan to add a paver walkway and pavers from the porch to the deck and the patio by the lake. We also want to cover the patio by the lake with pavers to match future walk and add flower beds in front of the deck,
We have a great view and it is so peacefull. Soon the work will be done and we can really enjoy it.
The 2nd, 3rd and last pictures are what the house looked like in 2000 when we bought it. As you can see it needed a LOT of work. Summer 2008
3 of 30: before any addition and before any remodel in 2000. What a mess The inside was just as bad. We gutted every room to the studs and moved walls etc.
4 of 30: This was the first update, added doorwall and window. It was just temporary, till we did the add on.
5 of 30: After the addition and before the deck. Just a little cozy 1400 sq. ft home. Just enough for us and our two little Maltese. Murphy & Tucker
8 of 30: This is where we will be putting pavers with colors to pull the porch and the deck together. Porch has a leakproof decking so we have storage under it. There will be a walkway going to the slab by the lake which will also be covered with the pavers as well as something in front of the deck stairs.
10 of 30: We didn,t want to spoil our view by using railing all the way around so we used benches on two sides, which are lower and also very useful
