So… Most of you have seen my little ranch. (We have done quite a bit of work since this photo – I will share an update soon) After my divorce, my goal was to buy a small home near the beach for my kids and I. I’ve been slowly (as I can) fixing it up!! It is pretty close to finally being finished. I need to add some finishing touches, purchase a few pieces of furniture, revamp a bathroom shower, rework a three season room, paint the exterior. I basically re-did the entire home. This list may seem long, but to me, the end is in sight!
I’m always excited when I come across another small”ish” home. I love larger, beautiful homes but I couldn’t buy one for a number of reasons, plus the upkeep would have killed me. I also find smaller homes cozy and inviting.
This month’s Better Homes and Gardens shares an adorable cottage bungalow in California. ( you know how I feel about Cali and right about now I wish I lived there!)
The article specifically highlights a “live-in” kitchen area. The square footage shown encompasses a kitchen, family room and eating area. When living in a smaller home, each zone needs to be well planned out. I think they have done a beautiful job! The white washed vaulted ceilings really help this home feel more spacious.
