Revamp of our wee Beach Cottage

This is our very little, very modest, beach cottage, that we bought in our hometown of Port Edward, KZN South Coast. It has taken all year to get it cleaned up and in a respectable state, thanks to both our fathers.
It was in such a dilapidated state, the grass and weeds were just about waist height, and the roof was so far gone that it was allowing an overwhelming amount of water into the lounge and bedrooms.
The cottage is literally a 2 minute walk to the beach and is too far for us to enjoy to its’ full extent at this point in time, so we have decided to rent it out for holiday accommodation.  It has been decorated very simply and easy going, something that doesn’t mind wet bottoms on the sofa and sandy feet on the floor – more than enough for a relaxed holiday away from the hustle and bustle.
This cottage accommodates 6 people with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the outside building has 3 seperate bedrooms which are all accessed from the outside showing great potential, there is also a small bathroom which is also accessed from outside..  With some clever planning and design, this could potentially accommodate another 6 people at least, and leave enough room to have a double garage at some point.  Yes, this outbuilding is even bigger than the house!

It has been great challenge, but more fun than ever.

I hope you all have an amazing break over the holidays, have a blast, keep safe and I will catch up in the New Year!
