The main house appeared to be a “teardown” from the property’s closing date. Small, dark, and lacking a screened porch, the main house was without charm. The kitchen was a budget remodel by the previous owners with a useless island and flimsy cabinets. Budget constraints from DRoy, restricted building a new main house for the immediate. Rather than dwell on the main house’s deficiencies the focus was on creating the bunkhouse which would ease up on the demands of the main house.
Most properties in vacation destinations come “as is” with grandma’s ancient and weathered wicker furniture. Fortunately, the owners of this property, took almost everything save a few salvageable beds to their new abode at a nearby lake. Restoration Hardware came to the rescue with appropriately rugged furniture and a flat delivery fee. Local retailer’s such as My Sister’s Garage provided other much needed pieces at reasonable pricing. Oxford cloth linens from Lands’ End and blankets from Maine Woolens gave the beds a simple campy feel. The once charmless abode is now comfortable and attractive.
