2006 Building of our Cottage House

plan pictureWe chose our property in Kirkland based on the close proximity to basically "everything" and quality of schools. We found our property through a mutual friend and were happy to know that there were no "association restrictions"....We purchased a southern style building plans from the Donald Gardner Inc. website that would give us the charm we so desired.  After deciding on Tony Wood to build our custom home - we began our search for southern charm ideas while he worked on the foundation of our new home.

What a beautiful 'cottage'! I loved your other home but this one is more my style. I'm looking forward to seeing more photo's :)I love that outdoors fireplace...in Washington State you need a covered area with all the rain :) I'm from British Columbia so I have a pretty good idea of what your summer is like. I love the colours you've chosen for the exterior..can I ask what brand and colour name/number it is? Next spring we're going to paint our little cottage and I've been thinking of green but so far I haven't found one that I really like until now :) Ok..I'm back to looking at more pictures!
