Hello! After a brief haitus, I have returned with some bittersweet news….
Treetop Cottage and its inhabitants are moving.
We have been experiencing some issues with the apartment which require repairs, that as renters, we are just not able to make. As much as we have loved this little cottage, we were not able to take care of it the way it needs to be cared for-like some major bathroom renovation work to remove the extensive water damage and mold growth, in addition to replacing windows so they actually close. The layout of this little haven has been wonderful and the coziness of the fireplace and built-in bookcases will definitely not be captured in our new home, however, I am so grateful that we were able to document our time here on this blog.
This was a decision that we spent a lot of time trying to fix, but recently, we have decided it would be best for our health if we find a better place. We have found another home that definitely comes with its own good qualities!
- Brand new kitchen
- 2 bedrooms
- 2 bathrooms
- More room for all of
- Hardwood floors
- New windows
- It will actually look clean when its clean!
Of course, I have been going crazy planning out where we are going to put all of my furniture, picking out paint colors, figuring out what we will use as a new dresser, since mine was ruined with all of the water damage we have been experiencing over here 😦 But its all very exciting and we are really looking forward to sharing our new home with you! I would love to share some pictures, but it is actually under construction right now, so the “befores” are really, really befores. Once there are some more things done, I will post some pics, and then you will be able to see the progress. Even better, I was able to choose most of the finishes myself-perks of being a designer! Oh! I’m so excited! Here are some quick images to hold you over…
Altogether, they may throw you off, but wait until you see the final product! We move in May 1st, so be prepared to see lots of posts about what is going on 🙂 OK, tomorrow I have a post about our “miniature” weekend!
