The Acorn Cottage {Front Yard Demolition}

We can see the house! We can see the house! 





One of the biggest changes to the Acorn Cottage will be the front garden. The removal of the overgrown trees and shrubs already has the front garden looking better. It is so awesome to see the daily progress being made on the cottage.








Besides the demolition of the front yard, I met with the wallpaper installer this morning at 7:30 AM. I want grasscloth wallpaper in the sunroom. At 2:00 PM, I am meeting with the drape installer. It's been busy but fun.


Clearing the Yard, y'all!

  2. Good start! I bet you are beyond thrilled! Are you removing the brick pavers too? This is going to be fun seeing you tweak this house!

  3. sounds as if there isn't much to do inside if you are already talking wall-paper and drapes. Enjoy the process.

  4. Could you tell us where you will buy another kettle? Not sure of correct term that you presently have in your Perrier front yard fish/no fish water feature? Somehow I thought you was an antique? You mentioned you will gave one at Acorn Cottage. Much happiness.

    1. I purchased a new fiberglass sugar kettle from Brian's Furniture. They are replicas of the metal sugar kettles.

  6. BIG difference! I'm all about saving plants when possible, but this does look much better. You'll have a great opportunity to make your mark with landscaping.

  8. Ahhhhh so excited to see you starting on the cottage. Oh Ron I am just vicariously living through you on this one. Ok here is my plan do not move in there and rent it out to me when you are done. Ok that is the plan ok!!!!!! Grasscloth wallpaper is going to be stunning in the sunroom. I can just imagine the drapes you picked out. Oh hurry and show more.
    Hugs,
    Kris

  11. Ha, ha! When we were insane and young----we bought a run-down 3 story 1903 sandstone monstrosity in N. Wisconsin with 54 windows...ugh. Think 1/4 of a city block---covered like your little cottage's lot. We hacked and sawed and cleared 40-50 years worth of growth. We found an iron jockey and a cement hitching post at the curb that had been covered with 6 foot cedars. The neighbor came across the street and said--"I didnt' know there was a two story carriage house in your side yard?" and she had lived there for 12 years. This is why I enjoy your blog---a reality trip without the work. Good luck, your cottage has great bones? It should be fun to see it evolve.
