When we were considering buying a 1400 sq foot brink ranch on five acres, I wasn’t too happy about it.
Until I saw what was in the back yard….
My husband said I literally ran up to the front porch in excitement, but I like to say that I walked briskly. :)
I just couldn’t believe my eyes! This property had a guest house!
The owner who built our home was an artist.
So he created a studio for him to paint in.
I love this little sign on the side of the guest house…
“Studio & Poutin’ House!”
What a great idea. When my kids start fussin’, I can just send them to the Poutin’ House! :)
Here is the front of the cottage (I think I want to call it my guest cottage, doesn’t that sound quaint?)
We hope to maybe add hardyboard siding to the front, and paint it a different color. Of course, we would get a new door!
This is what the side of the cottage looks like…
We are going to possibly add on to the cottage where the deck is. We want to add a bathroom to the cottage. Right now, there is storage under the deck.
Here is the view from the deck…
When you walk in the sliding glass doors from the deck, you see this…
As you can see, the cottage is full of the guest house furniture from our previous home, and a whole lot of other stuff that wouldn’t fit in our home!
I do not know what we would have done without this extra space to store things in!
There is wood everywhere! Wood walls, wood floors, and a wood ceiling…love it!!
Won’t it be fun to decorate this little space?!!!
It will be a while before we can do anything. No funds, of course. :)
I am dreaming of spaces like this…

When we are finally able to renovate this little guest cottage, we will share all the fun with you!
