Welcome to the Cottage at the Crossroads! My husband and I moved here four years ago. This is the house that my husband grew up in and was built by his grandfather after whom he is named. It is sitting on land that has been in his family since the 1700s. The house was empty at the same time that we were making some life-changing decisions. So we decided to move here, and that has been the best decision that we’ve ever made.
One of the first things we did when we moved here was to screen in the porch. You can read more about our porch HERE.
Our home is small. It is under 1400 square feet, which is half the size of the house we moved from. So all of the furniture that you see is what we already had. If it didn’t have a place in the cottage, it was sold.
We also painted the fireplace, and we found this butterfly picture that Leo’s mother colored about 50 years ago. You can read about that HERE.
The kitchen is fine, but when we have big, family gatherings, it seems mighty small! One day we’d like to enlarge and modernize it. If you’d like to read more details about our kitchen, click HERE.
Halfway down the hallway is the guest bedroom. You can see more of that room HERE.
