The Framers Are Here!

For a week or so nothing much happened on our lot. Either it was raining buckets, or the crews were working on our future neighbors' houses.
BUT, since then there's been quite a bit of activity. There was a major wood delivery-joists, trusses, plywood sheets, etc.

Then framing began. Here you can see the back corner of our house, with what will be our screen porch closest to the camera. We're going to need to figure out some way to make that dark covered space under the porch floor unattractive to wildlife, and therefore boring for our terriers. Maybe we'll try to use it for storage too. I've been using Pinterest to source some good ideas!

In the distance you can see the fourth house under construction. It's still in the lead, and we're still in second place, which is just fine. We don't want to put our current house on the market until some time in February.

This past week we had good weather, and look at all they managed to accomplish! Pretty incredible really, and SUPER exciting! From this angle you can see where our garage door will be, and our screen porch on the back right.

As you can see from the photo above this one, the house beside us is coming right along too. We wonder if they drive by almost every day, the way we do?

Quince Cottage believes a typical subdivision house can be transformed into a beautiful home that reflects the unique taste and personality of its owner. In our own place, we mix vintage Southern style with some global spice. Think gilded mirror, an embroidered velvet robe from Uzbekistan, and distressed plank walls. 
Stick around, and we'll not only show you what we mean, we'll also give you tips on creating your own signature look.
