More Repairs at My Cottage

New custom pickets to replace damaged ones.

My old cable vent, badly deteriorated. It was recycled from an old barn when I remodeled my cottage 2002-2004.

I am thrilled with my new sliding window with screen. It's really a double hung window put in sideways. It's open in this picture. The black side is the screen and the reflective glass is on the right side. I love looking out from the third floor. I have the weekend off to recover from a whirlwind week. Whew.

It must feel SO good to be getting everything repaired and ready for winter. Your house is looking great already with the white primer and your new little window is adorable! Have a good weekend.

All of your exterior work looks so good! Azek is a wonderful material ... we have used a lot of it on our old place, to prevent rot and damage in places that had seen a lot of both in the past. Folks have to be told that it's PVC, not wood ... it's THAT good.

I LOVE the new look! Thank you for sharing the details, and the wonderful workmanship. These guys are really doing a good job. The sideways window is brilliant, it will make a big difference in that attic room. Wish you were closer, would love to have someone who knows what they are doing and appreciates details be a contractor for me!

I am thrilled with your new fresh look, so glad you went with white on white, clean crisp and fresh and vintage!

You're doing an absolutely wonderful job. And staying true to your cottage's natural historic appeal. Bravo. P.S. Can't thank you enough for recommending Broadchurch. I got absolutely hooked and am still shocked at the conclusion. What an intense piece of psychological film making. Not one of Miss Marple's sleepy villages, that's for sure!
