Bettys hideout renovation

Is this Tahiti? :D

   The new siding is going up, starting with the Tiki Cabin and the neighbors love it as much as we do! It’s vibrant, happy, alive, crisp, clean and fun! These sweet cabins are feeling the love and we hope you’ll feel it too! When the house construction and landscaping are done, the decks and stairs […]

The new sliding glass door is in!! but not without some challenges :/

         The top image is the removal of the old, single-pane windows in the Tiki Cabin – to reveal they had been leaking for a very long time, down into the wall below them. So the guys, removed all the rotten wood, re-framed for the sliding glass door, installed a new header and […]

Off with the old… siding… oh, and windows!

Nautical updates

       This is the middle cabin as they sit on the road and in size order. The Nautical Cabin’s surprise for us is a sinking concrete slab in the main living area! We found it when the carpet was removed in this area. If you click on the image above you can clearly see […]

Transformation in progress!

      About 2 weeks ago, we began renovation on the cabins. Starting with the kitchen and ceiling in the largest of the 3 cabins, now known as the Tiki Cabin. Upon removing the flooring in the kitchen it was clear that the addition (which the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom closet were built on) […]
