The Summer House, Before and After Shots

Built circa 1920, my Summer House has been a work in progress for the past three years.  When I first purchased the property, the Arts and Crafts design was coated in dark brown paint.  
Once I took possession in the Summer of 2005, the exterior was handwashed with white latex stain to create the Cape Cod cottage look. 

Rear of the house before (above) and the transformation one year later (below). 

The main parlour is awash with sunlight first thing in the morning.  Ten foot ceilings were revealed after a false ceiling was taken out. 

We're now holding summer bed-and-breakfast stays and/or painting workshops.  The Rose Room and the Buttercup Room are available.  Call 250-378-5773.
